The quote I keep coming back to, in explaining what is happening before our eyes
1997 movie, Devil’s Advocate. After young ambitious attorney Keanu Reeves learns his boss in an endlessly corrupt NY law firm, Al Pacino, is a) his father, and b) Satan, Keanu, a bit PUT OFF, asks dad why he’s in the law business, why he’s chosen that vehicle; and Pacino says:
“Because, the law, my boy, puts us into everything. It’s the ultimate backstage pass. It’s the new priesthood, baby. Did you know there are more students in law school than lawyers walking the Earth? We’re coming out...guns blazing! The two of you—all of us, acquittal after acquittal after acquittal—until the stench of it reaches so high and far into Heaven, it chokes the whole fucking lot of them!”
On whatever level you want to take that; this is the intensity of the destruction we’re talking about.
Acquittal of violent street murderers and high-ranking official murderers.
Acquittal of vicious proponents and medical operatives who advance genital mutilation surgery and call it gender affirming care.
Acquittal of censors who do everything in their power to trample and blot out free speech.
Acquittal of academics and bureaucrats who destroy meritocracy, in favor of “equity.”
Acquittal of vaccine pushers, who lead the charge in debilitating and killing huge numbers of people, to prevent infection by a virus that doesn’t exist.
Acquittal of deep-pocket investors, who have been gobbling up one distressed Main Street after another, in the wake of the predatory COVID lockdowns.
There is more, much more.
In all cases, the law is bent and twisted and ignored and perverted, to prevent prosecution. To prevent justice.
I point this out because the failure of judicial system is the key. This failure allows socialists and Communists and other low-rent creatures to say the whole capitalist system and the free market are themselves perversions which must be wiped out.
When in fact a meritocracy and a free market DO work, if criminals who prey on that system are punished.
If and only if.
