For all people, authority imposed upon their ingroup is a massive psychological bad that they will avoid, at notable cost to self. Furthermore, it is much more bad psychologically, to be subject to authority, than it is good to be the wielder of said authority. However, it is not the only bad, so there will be tradeoffs. Authority over the outgroup is morally irrelevant to most folks, and therefore subsidiary to almost all other interests.For rich liberal New Yorkers...NYC rules don't apply to them. They are a form of class warfare.
- They're rich, and thus all the zoning/environmental laws serve only to impact poor proles.
- Drug laws are an effective way to catch poor proles but not to impact rich people, with differential sentencing.
- Crime is committed effectively only by poor people, and on folks living in poor neighborhoods.
- Environmental laws on individuals (recycling, car emissions) serve to force poor people who can't afford it to live by the rules the rich person was already living by voluntarily.
- 90-99% of laws in NYC have no impact whatsoever on a rich liberal.
- NYC is a great example of how folks hate authority.
