I want bikes to be allowed in Wilderness Areas or I want less new Wilderness Areas, but I don't think Civil Disobedience is going to do any good what so ever in this instance. The rules are the rules, work to change them if you don't agree. Ignoring them just fuels the opposition's argument, you're making their case for them. Please stop.
How is drinking and driving even similar?
If I drink and drive I am putting others and myself in danger.
If I ride in a wilderness I am putting noone not even myself in danger.
Ignorance is the highest form of dominance by not acknowledging a law that I didnt right, I dont support, and I dont want to follow. Its makes it a meaningless law since it cant be enforced
Honestly large scale organized rides in wilderness areas would do alot more good than the route biker have been trying to go. If everyone just start ignoring the law it will eventually become changed, that my fellow biker is democrocy in action, in the purest sense.
illegal doesnt equal wrong
its illegal for people under 21 in this country to have a drink. I guess every other country is wrong because they allow people under 21 to drink. I mean its illegal in this country so they must be doing wrong over there.
Its illegal to smoke pot in this country. other places its very much legal. I myself dont need anything like that but if someone wants to smoke pot who the **** cares? our goverment shouldnt care about something so frivilous instead focus on much bigger problems.
the world is shades of gray you should understand that.
