Turtles All The Way Down

If the people in power decide to rob you and abuse you and violate their own bogus rules, then you can petition a judge to please do something about it. But the judge is appointed by the robbers. And also paid by the robbers. With money they stole from you. Oh, and the state will use lawyers also paid for by what they stole from you (and millions of your neighbors). Every level of appeal and review is appointed and controlled by the robbers, paid with money they stole from you. Plus, you have to pay for the privilege of having their corrupt crooks hear your case. And since you probably aren’t familiar with their legalese voodoo yourself, you also probably have to pay (a lot) to someone “licensed” and approved by the robbers, to be your “advocate.”

It’s like playing in a football game. Except you have to pay for the stadium. And all the players on the other team. And for the referee. Who works for the other team. And you pay for your own “quarterback” … who can only play in the game if the other team approves of him. Oh, and the other team makes the rules. And changes them whenever they want. And they don’t follow their own rules. And they get away with it. Constantly. But they kidnap and cage you if you don’t follow their rules. Or even if you do follow them, but they pretend you didn’t. Then they put you in a cage. A cage that you paid for.

And most people don’t see a problem with this arrangement. Because “muh roads.”
