The first sign of tyranny

“Selective enforcement of the law is the first sign of tyranny. A government empowered to determine arbitrarily who may operate outside the rule of law invariably embraces favoritism as friends, allies and those with the best-funded lobbyists are rewarded. Favoritism inevitably leads to corruption, and corruption invites extortion. Ultimately, the rule of law ceases to exist in any recognizable form, and what is left is tyranny.

“America’s founders rejected that road to tyranny when they boldly declared that all men are created equal. They wrote a Constitution meant to secure the promise of equal protection under the law.”

Dr. Milton R. Wolf – The Washington Times

Thanks to Winston Smith for this quote

  1. Be prepared for the worst that can happen. When the mind is set into running to some direction, it keeps running untill it produces far too much harm which can takes a long time

  2. I have been arguing this lately in California as to AB-5. Lawyers, and other professions are exempted.

    Laws should be for everyone, or no one.
