Shout out to Nathan Burney for creating this political comic:
The book Atlas Shrugged by Ayn Rand also carried such themes and this famous quote exemplifies it.
"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."
The recent publishing of the book "Three Felonies A Day" conclusively proves what the comic says is true.
The average professional in this country wakes up in the morning, goes to work, comes home, eats dinner, and then goes to sleep, unaware that he or she has likely committed several federal crimes that day. Why? The answer lies in the very nature of modern federal criminal laws, which have exploded in number but also become impossibly broad and vague. In Three Felonies a Day, Harvey A. Silverglate reveals how federal criminal laws have become dangerously disconnected from the English common law tradition and how prosecutors can pin arguable federal crimes on any one of us, for even the most seemingly innocuous behavior. The volume of federal crimes in recent decades has increased well beyond the statute books and into the morass of the Code of Federal Regulations, handing federal prosecutors an additional trove of vague and exceedingly complex and technical prohibitions to stick on their hapless targets. The dangers spelled out in Three Felonies a Day do not apply solely to "white collar criminals," state and local politicians, and professionals. No social class or profession is safe from this troubling form of social control...
There are no innocent people. Just people who have not been convicted of a crime yet.
This is not just modern problem as George Orwell understood it. The origins of social control goes back thousands of years to biblical times. Why was Jesus crucified and what actual crime did he commit? Who were his accusers? The truth is the crime was that he 'worked' on the sabbath which in those times was punishable by death. Jesus angered the money changers in the temple when he threw them out of the Temple of Solomon. The money changers went to the Pharisees to see if they could accuse him of a crime. The term Pharisee has the same root origin as the word Pharaoh. It means ruler or law maker and when Hebrews came out of Egypt they kept the law making social control of the Pharaohs and made it their own. So when the Pharisees saw Jesus help a sick man on the Sabbath they say that he had broken then law and should be put to death. When asked why the same law was not used on the money changers the Pharisees replied: The law is for thee not for me, peasant.
Those who do not understand history are doomed to repeat it. Liberals are the modern day Pharisees and they rule in the same manner that was used to oppress people thousands of years ago. Religion is only used as an excuse to oppress people. Freedom comes from the creator and is beyond the reproach of any law. Distrust any liberal who speaks of law or says it is for your safety for they no nothing of the creator's law. The liberal law maker is a lying wretch that will say or do anything to win your compliance. Whatever you do, DO not give it to them. They cannot rule you with out your consent. That is the metaphysical law of the universe whether you believe in the creator or not. Hitler ruled because people went along with it. Stalin ruled because people went along with it. No dictatorship has ever ruled without the consent of the people even if the people give their consent out of ignorance.
You want Freedom... Do NOT consent. Do NOT comply. It is simple as that.
