The Rule of Law Has Been Lost - By Paul Craig Roberts

• Information Clearing House
What is the greatest human achievement? Many would answer in terms of some architectural or engineering feat: The Great Pyramids, skyscrapers, a bridge span, or sending men to the moon. Others might say the subduing of some deadly disease or Einstein’s theory of relativity.

The greatest human achievement is the subordination of government to law. This was an English achievement that required eight centuries of struggle, beginning in the ninth century when King Alfred the Great codified the common law, moving forward with the Magna Carta in the thirteenth century and culminating with the Glorious Revolution in the late seventeenth century.

 Well said, Mr. Roberts! We no longer live under the "rule of law", we now live under the law of rule. The corporate federal empire is not controlled by a board of directors representing We the People who are stakeholders, but by executive tyrants taking their cues from billionaire backers. It is not a republic we have, but a "WE SAY SO!" for-profit corporate fascism not unlike Nazi Germany. Be very afraid. Stay alert and keep your powder dry!
