This is consistent with a mindset that believes you should always obey the law because it was duly enacted by your elected representatives and therefore is the end result of that social contract you never signed. It doesn't leave a lot of space for freedom of conscience and civil disobedience.

It’s also a disease of the conservative instincts around thin veneer of civilization/slippery slope to chaos. It has a long history.

I'd have a lot more respect for "law and order" types if they held LEOs to the same standard.

You know good and goddamned well there are people that would be just fine with Thanos's solution if they knew they were going to be in the surviving half and they got to help pick the other half. And those people are lurking in every political ideology, even ours.

Sessions' favorite, ideal citizen dies. He appears before St. Peter:

*peers in book* "it says here you flayed alive 1000 babies in front of their mothers. Is this true?!"
-it is sir

"and it also says here you then disemboweled those women and skullfucked the corpses, all in front of their screaming husbands"
-it was indeed I sir

"and you have the receipts for the axes and knives?"
-it's all right here sir

"well, it appears you followed all applicable federal, state and local laws."

The clouds part, and the sunbeam of light starts to elevate the citizen, while St. Peter makes waving motions with hands in shape of the cross over his head chanting "Procedures were foll..."

"oh wait what's this? Oh, this will not do at all. I don't see your 27b stroke 6 here in your materials." *spits disgustedly*

-aaaaaaaaaiiiiiiiiighgghghghgh but they were illegal... what part of illegal...

Fair enough.

That she has naturally occurring lean glands is something else.

For some reason I listened to Elizabeth Breunig on a podcast today.

Jesus Christ, she has combined socialism and catholicism to synthesize some kind of extremely retarded "Maximum Pro-Life" philosophy whereby everyone on the planet should have as many babies as they want, and the rich people should pay for everything.

But don't worry, she rejects any Malthusian ideas, and any concept of externalities, economics, climate change, conservation, or fucking famine is not her concern.

Apologies to Nicole, she's a lunatic.
