Some Thoughts on Where We Can Turn and Where we Can’t
In Order to Solve Our Current Crisis.
Legislators & Bureaucrats
There are two problems with turning to those who make or enforce laws & regulations in order to solve our current crisis.
The first is that immoral people don’t obey laws and regulations.
The second is that those people who regularly flout laws and ignore regulations are the same people who, through that very activity, have gained wealth and influence. They've become our government. They are not only privately benefiting from their criminality but now they are in the business of reshaping the whole of society by creating laws & regulations which serve themselves while oppressing all of those who might ever possibly challenge or oppose them.
Due to the proliferation of 'public-private partnerships' (also known as P3s, the Third Way, Stakeholder Capitalism, or -and I like this term the best- Fascism,) elected officials are refusing to uphold Constitutional protecting by hiding behind the skirts of private enterprises and allowing them, for all intents and puroses, to create and enforce an entirely new set of rules.
