    If you need that many laws, there is something fundamentally wrong with the construction of the legal foundation. Implementing laws is one thing, executing is another and subjecting it to validity becomes an altogether other “beast”. Society gets paralyzed beyond comprehension and at a certain point more people will be behind bars than living free. Maybe that is by construction, intended or maybe it is because the foundation is constructed wrong.

    The thinking process behind laws is wrong as laws are approached from a micro level, allowing every occurrence and individual to amend them. It is the result of a society that adores the idea of freedom but does not understand the meaning. Western Societies are the product of an Apollonian mind which hopes that by naming and classifying every single aspect separately, we can control and ultimately defeat the unwanted. It's a desperate move to try and control nature and human nature. We see, we identify, we name and we recognize. It's how we live. We do insist that to name something is to control something. Rather than in the Far East were laws are based on harmony of reality and unity with nature.

    The Center for Media Research has released a study by Vertical Response that shows just where many of these ‘Main Street’ players are going with their online dollars. The big winners: e-mail and social media. With only 3.8% of small business folks NOT planning on using e-mail marketing and with social media carrying the perception of being free (which they so rudely discover it is far from free) this should make some in the banner and search crowd a little wary.

    Yes, our society is not designed properly.

    There is no thinking process behind laws–opposite is true as word government imply governing. Kinda simple.

    All these statutes, codes, and laws because we cannot follow 10 simple commandments. Happy demonocracy America.

  15. The Mime Dr.

    Yes tommylee it is the intentions of our so called government to incarcerate the population as the politicians want the planet for themselves.The facts that the police are as wrong as we are does not help anything and if they ever see that all they are doing is protecting their own genocide via aerosols in our atmosphere, poison in the water and food that their own so called loved ones consume. It should be no surprise that it is only because they are brainwashed and will never admit to it, Here is a good reason not to follow in their foot steps.

    We only need one law. Don’t hurt people or take their stuff. It really is that simple.

    heard years ago there were around 1.5 million laws in America,wake up or soon there will be a law against that , America he who gives up freedom for security is worthy of neither,the problem is spiritual,and deals with relationships,relationship to true law which is impossible to change otherwise would no longer be true,and made effuctal by love ,einstine said “relativity belongs to the field of physics,not morality” thus really only one law is necessary for peace ,purpose
    and prosperity, ” To love you neighbor as yourself” yet this requires a divine revelation,thus humility as in What do you have that you did not receive,thus be still an establish a relationship with the father Who waits for your enlightenment,thus growing into : let us make man in our image after our likeness,giving soverign will your only
    desiring transforming intimacy with ud
    true possession,likewise there (Their ,They’re) is only One Good and that being is not us,but desires into me see ,intimacy with us

  18. So many laws, virtually every American Citizen is a criminal « libertypolicewatch

    […] Because there are so many laws, the spirit and nature for which the laws are applied makes ALL of the difference between parts of the country where police protect Americans, and police harass Americans.  In order to survive, America will need to set up a process for deleting bad laws.  In the meantime, we are badly in need to have less police altogether, but more understanding, qualified police who do not take the laws out of context and misapply (or abuse them.)   Many of the laws are only supposed to be made within certain limitations.  When police break the law in order to get somebody in trouble, they are most likely taking the law out of context and applying it in a way that is not only unhelpful, but damaging and hostile (example is unwarranted searches that police make in cars). An officer’s basic job should first be to “protect” people, not entrap them or be out to incriminate anybody because with thousands, maybe millions of pages of the laws, over 42,000 new federal reasons to get arrested passed in 2010 alone and counting, every American is a criminal!  We are ALL guilty.  The police, judges and prosecutors have made crooks of themselves when they enforce a law out of the context from which it was written, especially when they do it in the spirit of spite, arrogance or indifference.  Especially when they BREAK the law in order to get somebody else in trouble.  Smaller Government goes hand and hand with less laws to incriminate any american citizen with. When I say I am against more laws, this is on a personal basis; laws that target individuals.  I am not against creating more modernized laws targeting organizations and the humane use of modern technology, for example in food regulations, purposeful labeling of GMO’s (what was the gene inserted in the food for: to survive frost, produce ammonia, or make a plant withstand more pesticides?), data mining (personal data collection with search engines and email, targeting sensitive psychological or medical problems), educational ethics (universities should not be run by CEO’s and business men in-debting 18 year old children for the rest of their life under the name “education”, especially with today’s information age where Harvard & MIT professors are putting up their lectures online for FREE).  Just a few examples. I don’t believe any law can enforce morality, only encourage or discourage it. People need to make personal, conscious decisions about the consequences of their actions. Any law trying to force morality on a population is just as likely to encourage corruption. I say this having studied the history of Chicago corruption.

    How do we as fix the corruption and rewrite (or destroy) the laws of the very system that rules our lives and makes us blind to the truth of what is really going on in our world. How do we fix it??? Please….. someone give me an answer.

  20. Suckmyballs

    There are three effects on society by having this many laws, effect number one polarization of economy, effect number two, break down of human social structure where everything should be politically correct. Effect three, Creating a ponzy skim of lawyers,goverment entities and other morons ( plaintiff / defendants) to suck money away from good honest hard working folks from a system which we all know and love…. <<<< umm bit of sarcasm there if you couldn't detected it. In conclusion they should just reduce number of laws as they possibly can and make it clear so that even a dumb ass can interpret them easily. I would be highly impressed if they brought it down to about a 10000 laws by the end of this year. If not run, the end is near..lol

  32. FAKIA

    You’re making a flawed assumption. Don’t fret, it’s one of the most common ones in politics. You’re assuming that without government, and its iron fist, there would be no order in those areas.

    There’s no logical basis to support that assumption, and there are millions of examples of non government generated organization.

    Imagine if you will, that the old common law rule of property ownership was still enforced, and that you owned the air above your home, to include rights to fly through it. Walk that dog for a bit, and it’s not too hard to see a large co op, started to procure, and in so doing, regulate over flight rights for aviation. The regulation would still happen, just like it does on private roads, but government wouldn’t be involved in anything more than property rights enforcement.

  33. Gabriel A. King

    No it does not, you fucking moron. But keep parroting your retarded Liberal garbage. It’s amusing to watch robots like you spout all the standard lines of BS. Maybe if you repeat it enough times, the sheeple who haven’t read the Bible will believe it !

    And being human, and breaking some of those laws- that don’t end in someone’s death- should not be held against an adult for the rest of their GD lives. It’s gotten ridiculous!!!!
