Step Two

It’s now official.  The United States Government, through its highest court, has explicitly and unambiguously declared that Rule of Law is out.  The exact words—“In this instance, the context and structure of the Act compel us to depart from what would otherwise be the most natural reading of the pertinent statutory phrase…”

That’s simple and clear.  Rule of Law is no more in this country, and nobody should fool themselves into thinking otherwise.  The first thing to notice is that your life didn’t suddenly change.  You’re doing what you normally do on a day like today, and one of history’s most far-reaching legal decisions had no affect on you whatsoever.  That’s because your life is yours, not theirs.

So now what?  So now you live as you always were, as a free willful person.  The only difference is that now you don’t have to pretend that the Law rules over you.  The Supreme Court said so today—it doesn’t.  Of course some of us understood that all along, but now it’s out in the open and even those who pretend to be your legal masters, admit that they’re not.  They are, and only could be, your physical masters.

That part doesn’t change.  They still want to be your physical masters, but at least you don’t have to pretend there’s any lawful authority behind it.  There never was any authority behind it—“Power only becomes authority with the sanction of the victim.”

So not much has changed, except the pretension…theirs and yours.  You still get to live your life as you choose, and they still get to try and stop you.

Step Two?  Don’t let them.  You no longer have any excuse to pretend that it might be proper to rule over you, or enslave you, or steal your earnings.  Your happiness is yours to achieve, and the responsibility for that falls upon you.  It always did as a matter of fact, but most people wouldn’t admit it.  Probably, most people still won’t.  That doesn’t matter; what matters is that you do own yourself and your life is going to be whatever you make of it.  Make it good.
