So many cycles of all kinds of abuse against mankind are the fault of TOO many laws- especially the private internal Policies and Procedures of many big Corporations, Institutions, Churches and Military.
Companies and groups are allowed to make their own rules 'in order to function' as they see fit. Many of the above mentioned Institutions FORBID an employee or group member for calling outside help when a wrong doing event is witnessed or happens at the work place, or risk losing one's job, be expelled etc. It must be reported to a superior within the organization and go up the chain of command. This would include, sexual assault, harrasment, theft, whistle blowing etc.
These corporate laws are for the benefit of coporation, institution, church, military, group to handle any potential scandal crime from exposure to their 'customers, clients, doners that would harm their reputation, cause loss of income etc.
We recently witnessed the horrific scandal at Penn State, Cain and his restaurant organization, mortgage meltdowns, military scandals, wallstreet greed, Catholic church pedophile cover ups and on and on it goes. These crimes continue because these Big Groups are allowed to make their own laws.
Many (unfortunately most) employees and members of these organizations are not brave or courageous enough to break these laws outside the group. When a scandal does break free to the rest of the world the outrage is massive, yet the scandals and crimes still happen over and over again.
I guess the question is which Laws need to end, should be followed, broken or changed?
A Question to Ponder
“we can never find meaning or freedom in living if we consider life processes from the floundering orbits of law, the state or corporate economy, but only through lifting ourselves to the warmth of experience and human community.”(3) Amplifying their point and tapping into longstanding anti-authoritarian and anarchist tenets, Sullivan and Tifft continue their missive: “All law, authority and institutions of state are based on force, violence and the fear of punishment.(4) . . . The function of law historically has been to deny some people the right to their personal journey, to detain us, by demanding that we resolve our contradictions within the confines of law and the state. . . . Law prohibits us from freeing ourselves, experiencing ourselves in the struggle to be human.(5) . . . To accept law, therefore is to accept a reality in which there is imposition of person upon person. It is to accept the reality of enslavement, the plantation of the welfare state. It is to accept the division of the world into parts that translate into subject and objects, and the mechanisms to manage this hierarchical division, denying autonomy to everyone.”
I break a lot of laws (that are meant to be broken) whenever I see an injustice to a fellow human being and You Should Too! Especially when a child is being abused!
We live in a sick society. Trauma is believed, by many doctors, biologists, psychologists etc., to be a major cause of many mental and physical diseases. Sexual assault, harrassment, bullying is rampant!
I am not advocating blatant anarchy, but it is time for many changes. Change is in the air (thanks to OWS!)
