Millions of people around America are upset and often for different reasons, but in most cases they share a vision that justice no longer exists in the United States, or has been so undermined that they no longer respect it.
I have a similar thought which is shown by the frequent flagrant violations of driving law. There are so many laws out there, it’s impossible to follow all the laws now passed. Also, the laws are enforced on a sporadic basis according to the whim of the officer and station of the citizen. Hillary. Personally, I think this is a planned occurrence to get the population disbelieving in the rule of law. All that remains is the rule of force. The government has the greatest force, therefore can rule according to their whim. That is my opinion of their goal. Combined with this is the destruction of the Judeo-Christian ethic. After all, [W]e have no government armed with power capable of contending with human passions unbridled by morality and religion. . . . Our constitution was made only for a moral and religious people. It is wholly inadequate to the government of any other. Big government has no need for those who behave. Create a society of factions and lawlessness, and force is required.
I have made an interesting observation in the old media versus now. Look back at the original Lone Ranger series and note how many times the Lone Ranger acted against a lawless man on his own. Every time, he brought the lawless man to “justice.” Many times, he stated that the goal was to apply the rule of law in the frontier. The same applied for the original Batman. He worked with the police to bring the bad man to justice. The movies came out in the 80’s and there Batman was present for the demise of the villain. The bad man was never delivered to justice. In 30 years we went from the media portraying the need for the wheels of justice to work to acknowledging that they don’t and retribution for crime needs to be done outside the law. Just some questions in this regard: How many viewers of this kind of thought adopt it in some form or fashion? If that kind of philosophical training is continued, how long before there is a real change in society? Are we seeing the fruits of the media efforts from the last 4 decades?
*Update* I received an email from Siblinginbox as follows:
Your blog post reminded me of this quote from Ayn Rand, and I really illuminated what we are living under in the US.
“Did you really think we want those laws observed?” said Dr. Ferris.
“We want them to be broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against… We’re after power and we mean it… There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Reardon, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.”
