That famed saying attributed to Aleister Crowley nicely summarizes the position that the repulsive white collar criminals of the Democratic Party and the Republican Party are all but forcing on the rest of us. These sickening figures who spend their entire careers barely one step ahead of a criminal indictment actually think they’re fit to dictate the terms under which the rest of us are to live our lives while they slither through history circumventing those same terms.
As weak, inept and crooked little Barack Obama prepares to violate the Constitution again with another Executive Order the lesson is clear to all but the weakest and the meekest: do whatever you can get away with. These criminals in high office are not fit to hold their public trust and a reasonable person might argue they deserve whatever punishment an equally lawless citizenry might someday unleash on them. Possibly sooner rather than later.
With these would-be aristocrats violating the limits on their power in an increasingly blatant fashion only a fool or a coward would obey the laws of the land. ALL OF US IN THE PUBLIC SECTOR HAVE MORE IN COMMON WITH EACH OTHER THAN WE DO WITH THE CORRUPT BUREAUCRATS WHO INFEST EVERY CORNER OF THE UNITED STATES GOVERNMENT. IT DOESN’T MATTER IF YOU CALL YOURSELF LIBERAL, CONSERVATIVE, LIBERTARIAN OR ANARCHIST WE HAVE NO REASON TO GO ON FIGHTING EACH OTHER. OUR WOULD-BE RULERS ARE THE ONLY ONES WE NEED TO BATTLE. THEY DON’T DERSERVE OUR ALLEGIENCE OR LOYALTY NO MATTER WHICH FACTION THEY CLAIM THEY BELONG TO. THEIR HIGH OFFICES AND THEIR INCESSANT ABUSE OF POWER ARE WHAT MARK THEM.
Pretty potent ideas. I wonder what would happen if people began living by them?
