Every law now has a new law which will soon get a subset law that will be codified or whatever.
Laws about laws are now filling the airwaves and internet with attractive promises of payoffs if you meet the detailed criteria of qualification… Ha! I am sounding like them. They promise to protect and make fairness reign. Except that fairness must result in payments and payoffs.
Who else can we turn to for fairness and justice? The police are constrained by process. Common sense may be uncommon now as fear of legislation looms.
In battle, there is no time for courts. Shoot or be shot.
There is something funny going on here. We all know what good and bad is. Or we think we do. Except that both have been broken up into a million opinions. The truth no longer is clear. “Take or be took.”
If we don’t believe in God then we become godless. And are appointing ourselves as the final arbiters of good and evil… of sane and insane. Think about the consequences.
We are so full of law that we are its new slaves, colorless and obedient?
If you want to think independently you may now be breaking the law. Pretty soon a lawyer will be riding in every squad car. To read you your rights before the officer is allowed to fire.
I know this is all silly.
Does your heart still have a chance?
It knows what is right and wrong.
Wonder where that comes from?
