The Break Down Of The Rule Of Law
The rule of law is defined as, 1) general rules, 2) known in advance, 3) applying to the rulers as well as the ruled. How does the break down of the rule of law happen? Because there are too many rules to even count, the “general rules” part of the definition of the rule of law doesn’t exist. The increasing amount of rules makes it impossible to know them in advance. But the third part of the definition, applying to the rulers as well as the ruled, is the part that is starting to bother people. Abuses of power and corruption by individuals who are protected by their positions of power in Government are starting to result in a push back by the public.
Here are a couple of examples of Government agents abusing power.
1) TSA Officer Tries To Search Passenger After He Lands At Denver Airport.
This guy did a great job and could have walked away a minute before he did.
2) A Lesson In Police Escalation (here), at economicpolicyjournal.com.
If the cop was an NFL player and did this, he would be out of a job.
The result of what we see happening in the above clips will be a natural push back by the average citizen. The passenger walking away in the video above is an example of push back. We should all start peaceful non compliance because if we don’t, it will escalate into what you will see in these videos below. Both sides have to dial it back, because the cost of settling our differences through mob (thug) rule, on both sides, will be greater than if we settle our differences before we get to mob rule.
3) Angry Mob Throws Ukrainian Politician In Dumpster.
I can’t say I didn’t get a chuckle out of this video.
4) Airline Passengers Throw Elitist Politicians Off Plane, (here), at economicpolicyjournal.com.
A planes departure time was delayed for two hours as the crew waited for two Pakistani politicians to arrive. The passengers were so upset, they forced the politicians off the plane. I got a kick out of this one too.
These videos show each group using force against the other. The police side uses the sanctioned force of government, to enforce non general rules, that are not know in advance, and don’t apply to the rulers but must be obeyed by the ruled. The citizenry uses the perceived power of a larger group of people who are not going to back down. How far will this escalate before Government gives up a huge portion of it’s power?
