The Law, a rave

The Law is beautiful, the Law is cruel. It is self evident truths and inhumane oppression. What ever it is was brought home to me, last night, not by the Blood and Guts War which we never see, except in our dreams, but by an asshole who jumped in line and was cranked to go. 

With Greg Palast as his bible he was ready to go! He believed that he would stand and overcome. He was delusional. He was me, a fool, my questions in hand. Mentally ill? I don’t think so or else I am too. An activist ready and willing, stupid yes! Deluded? Aren’t we all. Our evils are perceived as our only choice. Here we are, the Alternative to what is now the Law. A Law which has let us down, kicked us to the curb (too many pulps for me) and left us all wondering whose law?

From Hammurabi to the Bill of Rights and on, whose laws are we talking about, the Laws of human progress? It’s not George Bush’s Laws not Betrayus’ Laws. It’s ours, the people, the ones who have to live in this world’s human rights. So screw the newly made up laws that legalize crimes against us all.

    I guess the law is, too. Welcome to the Dark Ages!

  1. quite a bit too. I started writing an essay about the other side of law. It was/is (if I motivate) going to be called, Culture of Violence: America the Brutal?

    The Bushistas clearly have no respect for the laws of the land, old ones or new ones, hence all the signing statements and lying to get around them. They make up the rules as they go to suit their needs only, just like bullies always do.

    The fish rots from the head and with lawlessness combined with abuse of power and greed at the top, the rot will only spread. And with it will spread more violence and more abuse of power. Abu Ghraib was the microcosm of what is possible here.

    So lets keep the lights on. That’s our job, right? Let’s keep the wisdom of the Age of Enlightenment alive.

    envisioned the law being used as a weapon against the people.

    from the LibDem conference this week in the UK but I am too dumb to do it.

    Heres the link to the BBC page, please click the “Menzies Campbell attacks Labour’s rights record” button at top right. This is what I want to hear. This and the sound of millions of voices shouting defiance.

  2. we have crimes leagalised by both party’s after the fact, major international human laws we won’t recognize, and our own hard won civil ones. The government is taking away the Bill of Rights and huge parts of the Constitution for nothing other then to empower a regime that seeks above all to diminish the common laws we all share and destroy our beautiful system.

  3. try international law.  Possibly the most noble of political endeavours that you could imagine – because in the absence of any international authority to carry out the punishment, it relies on states voluntarily agreeing to restrict their own behaviours for the benefit of humanity.

    One nation state is currently undermining this delicate balance at every turn, insisting that it should be exempt from obeying certain laws at the same time it enjoys the protection those laws afford it from others.

    Wonder who that might be…?


  4. This is my first attempt at a essay or diary. I probably shouldn’t have gotten drunk while I wrote it! But then again it kept it brief, it was hard to even read and so long that editing was severe.
