Cui Bono?

It’s a well-understood fact that in any situation, the people who perpetuate the situation are gaining some sort of benefit from it, or they wouldn’t continue to perpetuate it.  In other words, if you are looking for the reason that something is happening, look for the person who benefits—Cui bono?  Who benefits?

As I have already shown, the people who benefit from situations like this nonsense brought on my mom by Sherlock are the people involved in the “justice” system.  From Federal grants to prestige to whatever other circle-jerking perks they receive, it is not with a selfless desire to make the world a better place that these guys run the system.  

As stated in Ayn Rand’s life-changing Atlas Shrugged:
"Did you really think that we want those laws to be observed?" said Dr. Ferris. "We want them broken. You'd better get it straight that it's not a bunch of boy scouts you're up against - then you'll know that this is not the age for beautiful gestures. We're after power and we mean it. You fellows were pikers, but we know the real trick, and you'd better get wise to it. There's no way to rule innocent men. The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren't enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws. Who wants a nation of law-abiding citizens? What's there in that for anyone? But just pass the kind of laws that can neither be observed nor enforced nor objectively interpreted - and you create a nation of law-breakers - and then you cash in on guilt. Now, that's the system, Mr. Rearden, that's the game, and once you understand it, you'll be much easier to deal with."

So, if we want to be life-long bullies and continue to receive money for hurting people, all we have to do is make the kind of laws Ayn talks about above—ambiguous, not objectively interpreted, can’t be observed laws.  Sound familiar? (volunteering, an “alias” on a website unknown to the offender, internet identifiers...)

Atlas Shrugged was supposed to be a warning, not an instruction manual.

More to come…
