One of the fascinating things about the state is its ability to get away with crimes that normal citizens would be imprisoned or executed for. In a world awash in rules and regulations, I find it fascinating that virtually none of the rules apply to the people who are doing the ruling.
I’ve created a short list of clear crimes against humanity that we all accept as a rather normal, in fact necessary, part of our day-to-day existence. Hopefully putting these crimes into context will jog your senses and cause you to question the very foundations of our society. I would argue that it is impossible to have a moral and peaceful society when the governing body of that society acts as the antithesis of peace and morality.
Mass theft = taxation or inflation.
Theft = eminent domain.
Mass murder = war.
Murder = kill lists designated by executive fiat, collateral damage or executions.
