If you think it is OK to loose personal freedoms then honestly I can't help you. If you think the government knows best then I sure can't help you. Their track record speaks very poorly of their ability to even maintain their own personal integrity let alone yours or mine.
I am well versed in this everyone is doing it excuse as it was my daughters most used excuses......EVERYONE was doing it. I patiently told her I was not everyone's mother but I was hers. Were I everyone else's mother she could rest assured that they would not be doing it either as it was dangerous, harmful or self destructive. We each have one time to do things right and that is the first time.
I personally don't know what everyone else has to do with my decisions but for some it must make sense. Perhaps it is that they are not capable of thinking for themselves or that they prefer to let others do all the work.
Not to mention I do not believe for one minute all those who say they support my right to crop and dock when they don't and THEN spout all the reasons why I should not either and the most often heard is: EVERYONE ELSE HAS STOPPED ......therefore I should stop. I am not everyone else and I don't want to be follow something just because everyone else does. That is exactly how sheep get led to the slaughter!!!
If the only reason to support cropping and docking was the long standing traditions and heritage of so many of the working breeds as cropped and docked. I believe in upholding many long standing traditions which sadly too many of today's world have no concept of why or how they came about and many are founded in very sound solid reasons.
