The Hypocrisy Of Justice As A System

May 31, 2013 by  

Ah, the justice system — a murky, corrupt monstrosity that feeds itself with fines and fees, preying on the very people it is supposed to protect. Growing beyond the protection of the innocent to the pursuit of its own interest, the justice system, along with the Bar (together known as the legal system), generate an exorbitant amount of revenue each year. Do you really think they want to give that up for the of sake justice?

Certainly not, at least not willingly.

The Constitution laid the ground work for our republic to be a land governed by laws, above “men” (humans). Unfortunately, the amount of laws has grown so vast and their content so all-encompassing that it is virtually impossible to count them all, let alone understand each one. Thus, we have relied heavily upon a system of men who dispense, interpret, alter and impose laws, and still more men who defend us when we are faced with having broken the law. The system, now more about the men and less about the law, is so muddled that it could literally say or do anything (and often does), all to the benefit of the system of men involved.

We, as the people, have let all aspects of our justice system grow well beyond its means and are now reaping what we have sown. But when we are faced with incarceration, it’s hard not to buy into this very system with hope in our hearts that justice is what it’s all about.

However, there are other ways to fight the system, to defend yourself against false and/or malicious charges. Like Edward Snook outlined in his article Media in Criminal Cases, the best fight against the system is one fought in a spotlight. Corruption can’t stand the light; corrupted people’s only fear is exposure.

Together, as the people, we need to make a stand. We have to make justice the focus of the system, and perhaps that might just take throwing out all our laws and replacing them with simple, straightforward ones that leave no room for interpretation. Accomplishing this is easier said than done, however. If we don’t unite as a people and get rid of all the victimless crime statutes and abusive administrative rules that are drowning our Nation, we will all pay — many of us personally and all of us financially.

Just as much as any law that violates the Constitution is repugnant, so should be any system that steals justice just to turn a profit by practicing “law” or enforcing “law.”
