Omnipotent law begets universal guilt

  1. Mar 8, 2005 #1
    Look back upon the history of malfeasance. I believe that if we attempted to correct today the totality of past transgressions, we would find all of us equally culpable. Our limited justice system punishes mostly those who have inherited the "original sin" as played out in today's society. To truly bear witness to a person's wrongdoings is to realize that we eventually share complicity with those acts. Law is overall an inherited process by proxy from the elect upon the disenfranchised.

    No guilt because there was never a right or wrongdoing (malfeasance), only failed(?) attempts at a "rightful" order, an "enforced" cooperative society and the attempt at increasing power & influence.
