One of the claims of many a government, those (local, state, and federal) within the land mass erroneously labeled as the United States of America specifically, is that it is a government “of the people.” This idea is imparted upon many a mind through the grueling indoctrination process euphemistically referred to as “public education.” Unfortunately, it is simply not true. It can be disproven in a number of ways but perhaps one of the easiest is to take a look at the American “Just-Us” System. They don’t even try to hide the inconsistencies; most people are just too accepting of the tyranny to notice.

The first issue rests with the “laws” themselves, and how said “laws” are enforced. Most “laws” involve activity that does not create a victim (more on this later). Without a victim, a crime cannot have been committed. That you can still be accused of a crime, without this crucial piece of the puzzle, means that the “law” is nothing but an arbitrary edict passed down by some would-be tyrant (euphemistically referred to as “politicians” or “bureaucrats”). These edicts automatically put the public-at-large at a disadvantage, since no one (including the tyrants and enforcers) can possibly know anywhere close to every edict but are often told that this fact is irrelevant because “Ignorance of the law is no excuse!” Interestingly, the same standard is most often not applied equally to the aforementioned tyrants and enforcers…

The second issue arises with the participants inside of a courtroom, once one has been “legally” kidnapped by one of the enforcers for violating one of the litany of arbitrary edicts. The judge, bailiffs, stenographer, prosecutor, clerks, and even the defense lawyer (if, like so many victims of the “Just-Us” System, one cannot afford a private attorney) are all on the same payroll. They may have different titles, and claim to serve different functions, but at the end of the day they all feed from the same trough. That gives every one of them the incentive to make sure that the status quo is maintained. Rocking the boat and challenging the accepted “law” from the inside can be, and often is, career suicide. Much like the “thin blue line” that the cops hide behind, there’s a reason that you don’t hear about too many “legal system” whistle blowers: their livelihood depends on continuing the lie.

The third and possibly most glaring example of the kangaroo nature of the “Just-Us” System is when someone is indicted for one of the many victimless crimes. These non-crimes, as referenced earlier, cannot constitute a legitimate crime due to the lack of a victim. In an attempt to circumvent this obvious fact, governments have made themselves the victim (see the astronomically large number of court cases with titles like “So and so v. Pick a State or Locality”) in these cases. But how can this be? As outlined earlier, the alleged perpetrator in these cases is also told that they “are the government.” If this individual is the government, then how could they possibly bring charges against themselves? If you are both the perpetrator and the victim in the same instance, then that means that you have caused harm to no one but yourself. Even if the charge has something to do with a claim of the destruction of “public property”, then, as a member of the public, that individual would necessarily have to be destroying their own property. And since this individual would have been only harming themselves and/or their property, then how could they be punished for such an action? The only way an external punishment could be meted out is if the entity distributing the punishment had created some alternate reality where it was possible for one to both be the government and not be the government, and own property but not own the same property, all at the same time. In other words, this would necessitate the existence of Schrödinger’s individual and/or property…

If you dig deeper, then you can find even more inconsistencies. The ones listed above, however, should be more than enough to make any rational individual question the ability of such a system to provide any actual justice. Unfortunately most people remain blissfully unaware, or they will vehemently deny these facts without actually examining them, until they (or someone close to them) become(s) a victim of this system. And at that point, more often than not, it’s too late to escape the wrath of the State.
