Is it all About Choice?
There's some maxims of law emphasizing the importance of choice:

"Consent makes the law. A contract is a law between the parties, which can acquire force only by consent."

"Every consent involves a submission; but a mere submission does not necessarily involve consent." 

"Agreement takes the place of the law: the express understanding of parties supersedes such understanding as the law would imply."

So we have this group people in parliament, provincial and federal, in municipal or regional seats, or wherever, who make decisions which become statutes or bylaws, which act like laws but are not—unless they have our consent. Those people issue these statutes or bylaws with instructions to their policy enforcers (police) to apprehend any person not complying with their 'rules.'

These people can make any rule they like, usually to the advantage of some party-contributing corporation, and we are sheepishly expected to comply?

Where in this process were we given the opportunity to consent or refuse?

Without choice are we not simply slaves, disposable batteries, with the energy they need and draw from at will... ?
