Speaking of power yesterday reminded me of Orwell’s 1984. Like Atlas Shrugged, it is a must read book, but if you haven’t read it yet, you may not even be struck since our society is so much like it that it doesn’t even seem wrong…
"Now I will tell you the answer to my question. It is this. The Party seeks power entirely for its own sake. We are not interested in the good of others; we are interested solely in power, pure power. What pure power means you will understand presently. We are different from the oligarchies of the past in that we know what we are doing. All the others, even those who resembled ourselves, were cowards and hypocrites. The German Nazis and the Russian Communists came very close to us in their methods, but they never had the courage to recognize their own motives. They pretended, perhaps they even believed, that they had seized power unwillingly and for a limited time, and that just around the corner there lay a paradise where human beings would be free and equal. We are not like that. We know what no one ever seizes power with the intention of relinquishing it. Power is not a means; it is an end. One does not establish a dictatorship in order to safeguard a revolution; one makes the revolution in order to establish the dictatorship. The object of persecution is persecution. The object of torture is torture. The object of power is power. Now you begin to understand me."
The object of these attorneys and cops is power (and money and prestige etc) and they will do whatever it takes to get and keep as much as they can."
The attorneys have told us that the prosecutor has a calendar to fill and he doesn't care what he fills it with. That my mom is an "easy case" because they can point the finger of scorn at a "Sex-offender" instead of an "Ex-offender". That no matter the reminder that she stands there innocent until proven guilty, the label does its task. They also have said that the people don't care how much money the courts spend because they don't pay attention AND the courts know their supply of money is endless as they can just extort more from the people whenever they wish (as long as they look busy?).
Seems like it’s time for a little house cleaning in the “justice” system, unless you like your hard earned tax dollars going to fund the shenanigans of Sherlock and his friends.
More to come…
We have secured a lawyer who is willing to take a down payment, so we're on the road! She believes in the justice system enough to actually use it rather than try to make a back room deal and tell my mom to plead. Please visit this link and help us. Thank you for your generosity!
