You may think of that when you consider moral laws, laws that makes "unnatural" acts illegal.

If it really was the case, that the acts were unnatural, people wouldn't act that way, there wouldn't be any need to make it illegal. Just let people behave naturally! Yet, scores of nations have found a need to curb the way people naturally behave, labeling it "unnatural" behaviour.

In scores of cultures, people do behave in ways that we (un)naturally behave ... and it turns out not to cause any problem at all, in those cultures. Then we arrive with our claims that those acts are really unnatural and immoral and we must throw people in the pit for doing what has been perfectly normal, with no devastating effects, at least not until we appeared on the scene.

Today, the Norwegian media are full of messages from the authorities: There is no reason whatsoever for you to stock up a lot of food in your home! Food stores will remain open, in spite of Corona. We repeat: Do not stock up food. ... So before the day is over, the food stores will be scraped empty of all at least all canned and dried food, and a lot of other stuff as well. Any sign "Do not touch this sign" is an invitation to touch it. I think signs and moral laws have something in common: Warning against it makes it a lot more tempting to do it.

The purpose of laughable signs (and laws and whatever) is not primarily to keep people from doing silly things, but so that you can say: Don't blame me for them doing it! I had put up a sign!
