  •  very important comments above - trash rule of law (6+ / 0-)

    the foundation of the state as people above have noted in their excellent comments depends on the rule of law

    trashing the rule of law threatens the very legitimacy of the state

    thanks for your comments

      Recommended by:

      1. Understanding of the ideas of the enlightenment (e.g. the rule of law and that legitimate power derives from the consent of the governed) seems lower than ever.

      2. People who do have a basic grasp of those ideas often behave as if they are naturally occurring and self-sustaining.
