Am I the only person who sees what is going on?
Am I the only person who is questioning the way society is going?
Everywhere I look these days, I see signs of civilisation being dehumanised and being reduced to the status of mindless zombies.
Take a small example. I was driving along a good straight road yesterday, with a couple of cars in front of me. We came to a small spot of roadworks, and of course there were the ubiquitous temporary traffic lights. Nothing wrong so far? You must realise that this road is straight, with no junctions, and visibility is excellent. The lights covered a fifty foot stretch of road, and in fact there was no need for them at all [there rarely is]. The lights changed red as we all approached, and here is the scenario which has me rather worried. The lead driver just sat there staring at the red light, and wouldn’t move until it changed green. Can you now see what I am getting at? Here is a [presumably] sane and reasonable individual, who is being dictated to by a fucking light bulb. He [or she] has been brainwashed into a meek subservience to the rules and laws that have crept into every corner of our lives. There was no danger whatsoever in proceeding through that red light, but the conditioning is too strong.
Society used to be governed by logic, responsibility and morality. Now it is governed entirely by the rule of law.
Because of the dominance of law in our lives, we are no longer capable of making a decision for ourselves.
What is worse, the law is being used to excuse acts that are not logical, responsible or moral.
Take for example the salaries being paid to our government and our judiciary. Our judiciary are the highest paid in the world and our government are close to the top. In a country of four million that is facing bankruptcy, is this moral? No. Is it logical? No. Is it responsible? No. Is it legal? Yes. No only that, but it is protected by law, and in the case of the judiciary, by the constitution.
How often do we hear on the news that a new law is being introduced? How often do we hear that a decision can’t be taken until the legal ramifications have been sorted first?
The main problem with our legal system [apart from the fact that it encourages litigation at every corner] is that we as a people no longer take responsibility for ourselves. We have reached the stage where we do the most idiotic things because ‘it’s the law’. What is worse, we do them without question. We see signs everywhere saying that this, that or the other is illegal. Why can’t they say ‘not allowed’ or please don’t’? Because the fear of illegality strikes terror into our hearts.
It is time we questioned and examined our own actions.
This country [and most other countries] would be far far better off if 99% of the laws were scrapped. The law should be the final arbiter, not a system of rules that govern virtually every aspect of our lives.
Open your eyes.
Ask yourself if it is moral or responsible before asking yourself if it is legal.
Think for yourselves.
That isn’t illegal.
