WTF of the day

a movie about a man living in the midst of tel-aviv, who has (at least) 32 wives and 89 children and the authorities are unable to do anything about it.

Oy, why do you always want blanket statements? I'm talking about incest and incest only.

Because I believe that (in an ideal world) there should be an underlying principle, reason or logic behind every law that exists and if such a principle, reason or logic cannot be applied to other, similar cases then either it is not a principle at all or there exist differences between what seem to be similar cases, and I want to know what that difference is.

You see, reasons and principles behind things and how they work usually interest me more than things themselves and some level of abstraction in generalization is (in my humble opinion) crucial for such cases.

OK, how's this for a principle: "Anything done by consenting sane adults that is not harmful to and does not in any way require involvement of anyone other than consenting sane adults should, however weird and unpleasant, be safe for them to do without fear of interference."
