The Rule of Law – What Happens When Crime Is At the Top and Not the Bottom

Every now and then you come across something that you know makes complete sense and is irrefutable… And those refuting it only show the intensity of their colors more than anything else.

I was sent a link to a interview with Greg Hunter of USAWatchdog.com interviews one-on-one with Karl Denninger of Market-Ticker.org. Karl, a very successful entrepreneur in the stock market, had basically shutdown his stock insights site, which is followed by many doing their own stock trades, for the sake of ONE post… That is the importance and sense of urgency of his message, enough to stop everything he is doing to get this one message out.

His message, which I don’t believe Karl realizes, contains and follows several Biblical principles, making his message even that more important for all.

I’ve copied the beginning of the post here — you determine if you want to read it in its entirety where a link is provided to his full post…

Why do drug dealers shoot each other on street corners?

Answer: Joe the drug dealer cannot call the cops and tell them that Jack the drug dealer ripped him off and sold him a bag of oregano instead of weed. Joe also can’t sue Jack. Thus, when the threshold of his tolerance is crossed Joe has only the use of direct force available to him because he has no recourse to the law to settle his dispute with Jack.

The FIRST foundation of civil society is The Rule of Law. Without it there is literally nothing other than the Law of the Jungle, commonly known as “he who has the biggest teeth (or the most guns) and is willing to use them first wins.”

Let me remind you that Han Solo, who is widely regarded through the Star Wars series as a hero, shot first at Mos Eisley. George Lucas edited that in the second release of the film (and later had to put it back after fan outrage) but it is a fact that Han shot first in the original theatrical release. Why did Han shoot first and kill Greedo?

Because he knew there was no Rule of Law and he had no recourse to the law, which incidentally was later proved to be an exactly correct expectation when he was made an ornament in Jabba’s castle.

Now I want you to stop reading, go get an adult beverage or a cup of coffee, and think long and hard before you continue reading about the above.

Why?

BECAUSE THE ABOVE IS THE ISSUE THAT, IF WE FAIL TO ADDRESS IT IN THE PRESENT TENSE, RUNS THE RISK OF RESULTING IN AN IRREVOCABLE SERIES OF EVENTS IN THIS COUNTRY UP TO AND INCLUDING POSSIBLE CIVIL WAR.

Did you go get your drink, consume it, and think?
