I’m certainly no anti-law person, but hear me out on this one: Authority, a concept of which used to put people in line, is not as good as most non-Jewish law enforcement enforcers make it out to be. The reason I say this is not many know the difference between authority and morality. I already have one example, and that is the fictitious being known as God. For so many to claim this deity to be “holy” (read:evil) , he’s had people killed just because someone refused to pray to him, and (this event is in the bible) has drowned people because every person except Noah did evil things (according to him, of course). This pathetic deity didn’t even specify the evil acts. And the little boy Noah acknowledged this statement as fact without questioning him, and this deity drowned everyone. I have a quote of this that drives it home:
“You shall not make for yourself an idol, or any likeness of what is in heaven above or on the earth beneath or in the water under the earth. “You shall not worship them or serve them; for I, the LORD your God, am a jealous God, visiting the iniquity of the fathers on the children, on the third and the fourth generations of those who hate Me,but showing loving kindness to thousands, to those who love Me and keep My commandments.…”
– Exodus 20:5
The point here is, the person with the authority, ironically for law enforcement officers, are the ones doing the injustice as soon he/she gets hold any position of power. Having authority/power will also see himself as a self-proclaimed righteous force, and everyone else as evil idiots, or whatever insults of their choice.
