The question shouldn't be if something is already legal or not. The question should be if we're comfortable with society makes it legal.
How would you feel if murder was made legal, and people dismissed any claims of it being wrong? I can imagine someone saying "I didn't break the law at any point! It was within my legal rights to slit that person's throat." I can also imagine myself slowly backing away from that person, then running away from them.
This thought is brought to you buy a Planet Money episode about offshore companies in tax havens.
