    Lawful evil, to use a Dungeons and Dragons idiom. You can do damn near anything to those below you, and owe obedience to those above you, but may subvert orders if you can get away with it.

    This needs to be addressed, as others have noted, as evidence of a systemic problem.

    Economics is a social *science*. Can we base future economic decisions on math?

      There are rules of conduct in the military and higher rank does not empower anyone to break the law under the rules and regulations that are in place.  The rules and regulations have been thrown out whilst the chain of command has remained in place.  We probably think ourselves lucky that we haven't seen an internal revolt in response to the abuse of power that is clearly baked into the system at present.
