LAW & ENFORCEMENT

LAW & ENFORCEMENT

 

Dark arts magickian Aleister Crowley (1875-1947) wrote, "Do what thou wilt shall be the whole of the law."

 

"The law cracks me up."

President Bartlet,

The West Wing (1999-2006) TV show

 


Law and its enforcement exists to protect us from Society.  They know how to control themselves en masse.  Society in anarchy would be terrible for one's security.

 

It is said that rules are meant to be broken.  There's also the less renowned rules are meant to be followed.  Especially if they're your own rules.  Yet don't be too strict.  When stressed that which doesn't bend may break.

 


You are self-controlled you don't need anyone to control you.  (Though not everyone's this moral and self-controlled!)

 


Know the law.  Know the precise risk you're taking should you ever choose to break the law.  A $50 fine is a lot less inhibitive than 3-5 years hard labor in prison or a death sentence.

 


Do not get on the 'wrong side' of a law enforcement officer.  If they want to hit you with the law they'll find a way.

 

Rather than disengagement which can seem more hostile, a subtle Charm and Disarm approach is preferable.

 

As ever half truths sound better than outright lies.  When lying to anyone keep a sharp mind by visualizing a thumb tack kept under your toe and the pain it causes you when you use it.  A Tell is a comms which indicates stress, especially the stress of trying to get away with being false.  Scratching your nose, coughing, not looking your subject in the eye, looking down and plenty more can all be Tells.  Looking (down and) to the left is a sign of creating a fictional story, a lie, rather than looking to your right which is a sign of accessing a memory.  A Tell is your energy communicating while you try to hold things back.  Obviously deny everything.  This gives people the option of believing you.  Giving you the benefit of reasonable doubt.  Don't underestimate the power of denial.  It's often easier for them to 'believe' you than not.

 

A truthful answer to a question especially a personal question, even about your likes and dislikes or your history (let alone your future) is an immense give.  Not everyone you encounter in life deserves this.  Learn how to keep other people at arms length.  Learn how to keep your personal life personal and to give stock answers to questions.  Most people can respond to "how are you?" with "good, thanks."  Whether they are or not is irrelevant if it's none of the questioner's business.

 

Plausible deniability is a very important concept to utilize.  Like "the reason I was in the area was to visit the Washington monument."  It's plausible and a reason for denying that you had anything to do with the example stolen car.

 

Cops carry guns to protect lives.  Not to kill foolish addicts running away from a bust, etc..  They're armed with Less-Than-Lethal sprays, projectile stun guns and nightsticks to tackle violence and resistance.

 


People can be forgiven for their honest mistakes.  Never forget that they made them.  Misdeeds, intentional transgressions, are far less sensible to forgive.

 

There are six crimes for each crime type.

• Committing the act itself,

• Attempting to commit the act,

Planning to commit the act,

Conspiring to commit the act,

Helping to commit the act,

Inciting the act be committed.

NB  Considering to commit or even having decided to commit a crime are not crimesThere are no crimes of thought.

 

If you ever find yourself imprisoned know that you'll survive.  You'll live a long, happy life away from your incarceration.  You'll have memories to tie you to your history.  To escape this flashback torture reduce your memories by reducing your experience within your prison.  Meditate your way through it.  Doing less, time may seem to pass slower yet you'll secure a brighter future.

 

If you find yourself imprisoned on mental health grounds they'll want to medicate you.  Be your own doctor.  Even in countries which let you choose whether to be medicated or not they will hold any refusal against you and view it as a foolish rejection of their profession and expertise.  If you don't want your prescribed meds then tongue them; hide them in your mouth and don't talk much at all until you can spit them down a sink or toilet.  Be aware that if caught you can swallow them although this might not satisfy the staff who may choose to physically restrain you while injecting your meds as a large, slow-release dose intramuscularly, called a depot.  Certainly don't tell a soul if you chose not to adhere to their prescription.  Remember to act medicated.  Apart from a debilitating depot the two main Attacks to avoid at all costs, still performed sometimes even in the First World, are Electroconvulsive Therapy (ECT); Tasering the brain; zapping it with electricity and lobotomies; brain surgery.

 

Fines as a tax based on one's income would be just.  Else it hugely disproportionately favors and therefore fails to dissuade the wealthy.

 

We're anti-torture, including anti-waterboarding, under any circumstances including a 'ticking bomb' situation.  Society is liable for all of its actions, all of the time, done for any reason.  Society must be more humane than to torture another lifeform, in this case a human being.  Torture anyone for long enough and they'll either die or tell you anything you want to hear in order to stop their torture.  Hence testimony received via torture is inadmissible in an American court.

 

Detention without trial, for instance in Guantanamo Bay detention camp, is totally immoral and unjust.

 

As disclosed by a 2013 whistleblower the NSA (National Security Agency or No Such Agency) and other federal agencies were spying on citizens.  In the mid-2010s the NSA's deputy director Chris Inglis has said that they spy out to three steps, that means they're spying on a friend of a friend of a friend that might be a potential terrorist.  It's eroding the right to privacy and evading probable cause (as enshrined in America's 4th Amendment) for law enforcement scrutiny.

 

Autopsies are a despicable desecration of the dead.  Often unnecessary and solely performed as the norm.  Examination of a corpse doesn't have to be surgically invasive.  One should be allowed to pre-mortem opt out of an autopsy.  Not having the ability to communicate shouldn't give Society the implicit right to force you into cooperating with law enforcement post-mortem.

 

Consensual adult behavior damaging no one but themselves.  One cannot condone it in Society and one cannot criminalize it in Society.  For instance drug use and abuse, and not wearing a seat belt.  This differs from incitement to harmful behavior which should be a crime.  The law exists to stop people being harmed by others.  For instance promotion of cigarettes, alcohol and other drug usage, participating in casual sex (sex between people not cohabiting), homosexuality and prostitution couplets.

 

Sometimes the smaller things irk us.  Like uncontrolled attack dogs taking their owners out for walks or babies being carried on bicycles without a helmet between them (which is commonplace in Nederland (Holland)).  Accidents waiting to happen.  Yet we understand that nothing's perfect and Society is a good example of this in practice.
