Alexis de Tocqueville wrote:
Laws are always unstable unless they are founded on the manners of a nation; and manners are the only durable and resisting power in a people.
Manners are human nature. De Tocqueville warns us that laws and law administration, which go against human nature are unstable. A bull in a china shop is unstable.
Instability produces consequences, often widespread breakage. Breakage, a sort of equilibrium, is a usual outcome of instability.
So, Mr. Attorney General, do your damnedest. The lesson will be taught … once again.
