in regards to many situations right, now the conservative says,
"the law is the law" and must be obeyed.... and yet, yet the conservative
fails to acknowledge the simple fact, the law is quite often wrong, in the moral sense....
many examples abound in the world today......
for example, many "great" events in American history were in fact, in violation of the law
and according to the conservative not to have happened.....the Boston tea party, the
throwing of the tea into the Charles rives, Illegal and in violation of the LAW....
the entire revolution against England, illegal... the enter war of independence, illegal......
should we have not violated the law in that instance? I mean the "law is the law" and so
how can we justify violating the law, how can we justify breaking the law to achieve
independence? Slavery was the law of the land in the United States.... "the law is the law"
and yet, we had to fight an entire civil war to end slavery in this country......
the fact is slavery was the law... how do we justify breaking the law to free an entire
race from slavery? it was the LAW.......Gandhi in India, broke the laws
many number of times.... he was a lawyer and he knew the laws and he knew
he was breaking the law... the law is the law and yet he did so, how did he justify
the breaking of the law? we have Jim crow laws..... and we had people like
Rosa Parks break the law and we had people like Martin Luther King break the law...
but didn't they know the "law is the law"? Within my lifetime, it was a law
in some states forbidding interracial marriages.... and yet they did marry!
the law is the law.... how can a black person marry a white person... it is against
the law and society will collapse without everyone obeying the law......anarchy will
unfold without obedience to the law......Jesus... Jesus broke the law.... didn't he
know the "law is the law"... how can he justify breaking the law?
just because the "law is the law" doesn't make the law right in a moral sense.......
and we have a multitude of examples that show us that the law might be the law
but it doesn't make it right.... but now how do we know when we should follow the law
or when we should break the law? Right now we have illegal Aliens in America
and the "law is the law" and they shouldn't be here and yet, here they are.... but
the "law is the law"... we must act to save America from the illegal actions of people
who are here illegally.... "The law is the law" so we must deport them... send them back
to their own country because the "law is the law"......so we break up families in following
the law... we send fathers home without their family and we deprive children of their mother....
but hay, the "THE LAW IS THE LAW" and without obeying the law we have chaos and disorder
and anarchy... and yet this country was founded on completely illegal act and slavery was
ended on completely illegal acts......(a civil war is by definition an illegal act.. to get a civil
war someone broke the law someplace) and Gandhi created the country of India on
a series of illegal actions..... and the religion of Christanity was founded on a series
of illegal actions.......as was Protestantism was founding on a series of illegal actions....
and America was founded on a series of illegal actions... but the "THE LAW IS THE LAW"
and how can we justify breaking the law and creating anarchy and chaos when clearly
the "law is the law"? the only way you can justify any of these actions which founded
very important institutions in the world is by understanding that the "law is the law"
only in regards to terms of morality... the law is the law but it must be moral and
now we have a whole new can of worms....... because what is "Moral"?
can we justify slavery on moral grounds? No, but yet, here in 2017, we
have slavery around the globe......and how is this possible?
don't they, slaveholders know "the law is the law"?
how can they justify breaking the law? don't they know anarchy and chaos will follow
if we all don't obey the law?
Just because a "law is the law" doesn't make it right or worth having....
the question becomes, how do we know? upon what grounds do we have
justification for breaking the law?
we have had many, many millions of people around the world including here
in America protesting, some violently, protesting 45's administration....
don't they know that they are breaking the law? "the law is the law" and
they are inviting chaos and disorder into society by protesting 45.......
"The law is the law" this idea suggest we need to rethink this idea of
"the law is the law" and reframe it into another idea.....
"Those who sacrifice liberty for security
wind up with neither."
The RNC has announced that's its changing the Republican emblem from
an elephant to an condom because it more clearly reflects the party's political
stance: a condom stands for inflation, halts production, destroys the next generation,
protects a bunch of pricks, and gives one a sense of security while screwing others.
