It brings into question the very idea of 'law'. Most things that are socially unacceptable at this stage are far more damaging to a person than what's illegal. So, how do you control people in the modern world?
That's very worrying for society if you're paying attention.
And, obviously, social issues and opinions are far easier to manipulate than the law is. And you just know corporate elitists are very much paying attention to that.
