Politics As Usual
- is it -
? Cooperation or Exploitation?

Abuse Of Power

Rigging the System


"The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws." Tacitus

Let's start by distinguishing  force and power...real power attracts cooperation; it has little need for force. When a government can’t depend on allegiance and voluntary compliance it must force people to obey. People resist forced obedience. The ‘social contract’ is threatened by authoritarian governments. “Government that governs least governs best”. Yet, it has grown to regulate most aspects of our lives by force of law.

Power corrupts! Government power is no exception. Politics is all about power - the power to rig the system. Rigging the system is abuse of power.

Laws are discriminatory. Some more than others. Government makes laws. Laws create privileges for some and steal inalienable rights from others in the process. Laws steal choices. They prohibit and limit choices for some people and make you obey someone else’s choices. It’s like being told where to sit on the bus. Laws make you do things you would not want to do if you were free. Was it meant to be this way? What can be more valuable than choice? What do you have when you have no choice?

Laws gerrymander costs and benefits. State mandates are examples of this. Those who gain think laws are the use of power. Those who lose see ‘abuse of power’. Too many laws can lead to anarchy. Click here for more.

 

Examples of bad laws are ubiquitous at all levels of government. Here are just a few examples:
