After the break and some callers, we had on of FreedomsPhoenix writers, Bob Podolsky on the show we talked about two types of laws: Mala in se are acts generally recognized to be evil in and of themselves. These forbidden acts include murder, rape, torture, slavery, theft, robbery, fraud, assault, and a host of related acts long ago recognized as evils by the general public. Mala prohibita are acts which are not evil in and of themselves; but which have been forbidden because someone wants to impose their will upon someone else.
Bob also explained that the government is merely a ROBOT and like an other machine it allows the operator to do more than he could without the machine no different than a pair of binoculars allow the operator to see further. However the Robot has a prime directive, its Mission: To serve the interests of its creators – forever increasing their wealth and power over others, in accordance with the Power Ethic (might makes right).
