This I like.
Laws DO nothing. They ARE figments of the imagination which justify or disapporve of human behaviors. In a sense, laws are expressions of prejudice, efforts to pass judgement ahead of time. Hope springs eternal that disapproval is preventative. It isn’t. That is why we just consigned a couple of lawyers (Manafort and Cohen ) to prison. Since they presumably knew better, their violations of the law are insufferable. Their previous client is different. Or was until he started ordering the violation of laws in public and prompted the hiring of substitute minions. We will be lucky if the long term effect of this kerfuffle is to clarify the ROLE OF LAW rather than the RULE OF LAW. Since the law is an amoral, if not immoral, compendium of prescriptions and prohibitions, we do not want to be ruled by it.
