A nation of criminals.

“Did you really think we want those laws observed?” said Dr. Ferris. “We want them to be broken. You’d better get it straight that it’s not a bunch of boy scouts you’re up against… We’re after power and we mean it… There’s no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What’s there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced or objectively interpreted – and you create a nation of law-breakers – and then you cash in on guilt. Now that’s the system, Mr. Reardon, that’s the game, and once you understand it, you’ll be much easier to deal with.”
Only the ignorant among us do not realize this reality. Most people are blissfully ignorant and think they are immune to government over-reach and police corruption. They think its only "a few bad apples" and are completely oblivious to the truth; that they are mostly bad apples, and the basket is rotten as well. Next time you get pulled over for doing 5 mph over the 65mph speed limit, ask yourself if that stop had anything to do with safety.
Criminals aren't the reason this country continues doing worse. Government and law enforcement is. They work every single day, using our own money, to make criminals of all of us.
Why can't we fix it? Because our fellow citizens ARE the problem. Look at how many people the government employs. Every single one of you knows at least someone that works for the government in some capacity. Government employees will turn their back to ANYTHING if it means they can keep their jobs. Most people will do anything for greed.
If all crime ended tomorrow, are you going to try and convince me that all those useless cops and the ENTIRE "justice" system would just happily go do something else?
