But what if there are no laws to establish morality? Without a commonly-accepted moral ground, anything you do is technically good and moral, because no one is able to tell you otherwise.

commonly-accepted moral ground is only applicable within a community ancient civilizations used to find it completely moral to sacrifice their own children but its generally frowned upon today.

Real life experiment was police strike in Canada. You would think that super nice Canadians would behave but 						****					 hited the fan. Army had to take to the streets to restore order. Google it

laws only apply to law abiding citizens. which is why gun laws and drug laws dont work.

A more accurate description would be "Good people don't need laws to tell them to act responsibly, and bad people won't concern themselves with the laws anyway."

I'm fairly certain Plato never said anything like this. He held that laws were important to a well run state (at least if the Republic is any guide to his thoughts).

If something like this does get said in one of his dialogues I'm guessing this graphic has it out of context.

So, source or it didn't happen.

Nah... Fear of the law is the only thing that's stopping me from stealing everything that isn't bolted down.

Actually, according to actual studies that are at this point practically common knowledge,   
"good" people will do bad things if they don't get punished for it.   
Hell, I don't consider myself a "bad person" generally speaking and I'd steal the 						****					 out of the Publix candy isle given the chance.

I would've considered this as possible if it wasn't for the fact that plato is damn near always wrong

Finding a way around the law isnt that hard, you just have to by-pass him

It's interesting to note that there are barely any "good" or "bad" people out there.
Most people are neutral. We all have capabilities to "do good" or otherwise "do bad" and we've had our fair share of both.
