Weekly standard: Fake Law- How Trump-hatred warps the judiciary.

“Something ugly is happening to the First Amendment. It is being contorted to enable judges to protest Donald Trump’s presidency. The perennial impulse of judges to manipulate the law to achieve morally and politically desirable ends has only been exacerbated by the felt necessity to “resist” Trump. The result: Legal tests concerning the freedoms of speech and religion that in some cases were already highly dubious are being further deformed and twisted.

Welcome to the rise of fake law. Just as fake news spreads ideologically motivated misinformation with a newsy veneer, fake law brings us judicial posturing, virtue signaling, and opinionating masquerading as jurisprudence. And just as fake news augurs the end of authoritative reporting, fake law portends the diminution of law’s legitimacy and the warping of judges’ self-understanding of their constitutional role”

What’s this?

It  seems that the mainstream of America is finally getting it

They given up their worship of all things law and order no matter how totalitarian

They seem to have lost the idea that “You must follow the law”

Maybe they have thought about some of the precepts of ruling now that it has turned on them

“Governments are instituted among Men, deriving their just Powers from the Consent of the Governed.”

There it is plain and simple

If we don’t agree to your laws, they don’t work

Period

You can’t arrest us all, jail us all, penalize us all

In the end we far outnumber those “Lawmakers” who rule our daily lives, telling us what we can eat, what type of light bulb we can burn, how much water we can flush and how our children are to be raised

When it comes to the point that tyranny outweighs the security that comes with it, the consent of the governed is withdrawn

When our consent is withdrawn all the petty laws that are passed become meaningless

When meaningless laws are used to penalize people who refuse to consent then real trouble is set to start

Fear is not a good motivator in compliance with the law

It is about respect for that law and the fact that we as a people participate in it

“I know, I was doing 60 in a 30” is a good example

Take away the aspect of participation in the public good and that law becomes nothing more than a penalty that is imposed for being caught

Laws don’t stop robbers, thieves and murderers

Fear doesn’t stop them from committing crime

Nothing does

So, let’s see what happens when you de-legitimize the law for the mainstream of America

Let’s see what happens when all of the law abiding citizens of what is called “The silent majority” become disenfranchised from the law

It will not be pretty
