Without law, liberty becomes licentiousness

Without law, liberty becomes licentiousness


Gavel with broken handleThe public has been trained to think in terms of what is legal and what is illegal. The politicians and their elite bosses operate above the law and outside the law. For them, legal is what they say it is or is not.

Hillary Clinton personifies the system. The FBI and Department of (In)Justice – or, as some call it, the Department of Just Us – have always given the Clinton crime family a pass to operate outside the law. But it is not just them.

Politicians, bureaucrats, judges and their friends are untouchables. Yes, occasionally one or two are sacrificed on the altar in the name of “justice,” but it is nothing more than a ruse that keeps the system in place.

There are clearly privileged classes in America. It is those in political power backed by illegal police power. They act against the people outside the law and the Constitution. It has become so obvious.

The system is now beyond resolution. We are in the final stages of economic, social and moral collapse.

To anyone who has studied history, this is no surprise. The Founding Fathers had much to say about it.

In “Of the Study of the Law in the United States,” James Wilson wrote in 1790:

Without liberty, law loses its nature and its name, and becomes oppression. Without law, liberty also loses its nature and its name, and becomes licentiousness.

In 1774 in “Emblematic Representations,” Benjamin Franklin wrote:

The ordaining of laws in favor of one part of the nation, to the prejudice and oppression of another, is certainly the most erroneous and mistaken policy. An equal dispensation of protection, rights, privileges, and advantages, is what every part is entitled to, and ought to enjoy.

In Novanglus No. 7, John Adams wrote in 1777:

They define a republic to be a government of laws, and not of men.

In a letter to David Ramsey written in 1786, Benjamin Rush said:

[W]here there is no law, there is no liberty; and nothing deserves the name of law but that which is certain and universal in its operation upon all the members of the community.

Who can honestly say we remain a nation of laws and not men? We are governed by an evil and licentious oligarchy.
