The United States was founded on that principle that our rights and our liberties come from God and not from man nor government. This gives the individual the freedom to make choices and mostly to think for themselves. My rights to freedom and my liberties end when I take your rights to freedom and your liberties from you. I can not take from you your right to life through murder even when I use a euphemism such as choice. I can noy take from you your right to express yourself through speaking, writing, or assembly even if I declare it to be improper. I do not have the right to destroy or take your property even when I justify these actions because I declare they advance some meaningless and flexible term such as social justice or equality.
A tyrannical or collectivist state believes all rights and liberties are under the control of the government and thus the government has the right to declare who can live, what people can or cannot think or say, and which people are entitled to the property of others for whatever reason the state declares is proper.
In the United States we now state that murder is legal and proper when it comes under the definition of abortion. In the United States we now say that the right to freedom of expression must be censored or eliminated if the expression is deemed to be “hate expression.” In the United States we now stipulate that it is legal and proper to destroy and steal other’s property when it is done to advance “social justice.”
The left is now telling us that our laws and statutes must become flexible so the left can investigate whatever they deem to be a “hate action”. Understand that both hate and action must be loosely interpreted so the left has complete flexibility in controlling any actions or thoughts with which they disagree.
New York City Democratic Mayor Bill de Blasio is recommending police officers confront anyone who is behaving in a way that is deemed "hurtful," even if the actions didn't break any laws. "Even if something is not a criminal case, a perpetrator being confronted by the city, whether it's NYPD or another agency, and being told that what they've done was very hurtful to another person and could have ever repeated lead to criminal charges, that's another important piece of the puzzle," de Blasio said.
This moves the United States over that threshold of being a nation that adheres to rule of law to a nation adhering to arbitrary law. Under rule of law, the laws must be written, easy to understand, and equally applied to all. Under arbitrary law, the laws can and are whatever the tyrant declares, and they are applied on a selective and arbitrary basis. We are seeing the “applied on a selective basis” used by the federal authorities as they have determined that rioting and looting in different cities in the name of social justice is not a crime, while being in a group that openly opposed a corrupt election is criminal.
The United States has moved from a nation under rule of law to a nation under arbitrary law in the promise to transform the United States from an individualist nation to a collectivist (Marxist, communist, socialist, progressive, Democrat, - all virtually the same) nation.
