We Have Been Criminalized by an Overabundance of Laws

too many laws america

“Order may be nothing more than evidence of tyranny. Order may be nothing more than the prohibitions on freedom, the elimination of rights and the suppression of liberty. You are just as unsafe when things are too orderly as when they are disorderly.” — Jerry Day

Governments have learned that laws can be used as revenue and control measures by criminalizing more and more of human activity. Indeed, in many instances the term “criminal” is now meaningless as law enforcement has become a greater threat to ordinary people than actual criminals.

At an accelerating rate, western governments are criminalizing victimless trivialities for profit and control of the masses. In Denmark, the laws governing unemployment benefits are more than 36,000 pages and grow by almost seven pages daily on average. A massive 20,000 laws have been formulated to control ownership and use of guns in the US. The taxfoundation.org has shown that in order to understand and comply with US tax laws one must go through about 80,000 pages. Civil libertarians protest that prosecutors can charge any American with several crimes every day of the year because there are so many laws and regulations. See, for example, Harvey A. Silverglate, Three Felonies a Day: How the Feds Target the Innocent.

As it is impossible for a person to peruse all the required pages in order to comply with the laws, we are all probable criminals. Thus, the word “criminal” has effectively lost its meaning. 
Governments not only criminalize behavior for revenue purposes and in order to create a slave prison population to be exploited by private industries. Governments also legalize crimes, such as gambling for which government prosecuted private interests, and turn them into government sponsored lotteries. There is also evidence that the US government is actively involved in illegal drug trade.

San Jose Mercury investigative reporter Gary Webb found evidence of the CIA’s involvement in the drug trade. The Mercury published it. The CIA then used its media assets, such as the Washington Post, to carry on a campaign against Webb to discredit him. Investigative reporters got the message and have not looked into the CIA’s presence in the Afghan opium drug trade despite the massive growth under US occupation of Afghanistan’s opium share of the world market. The Taliban had suppressed the opium trade, but under US occupation the percentage of the world market supplied by Afghanistan rose from 6% in 2001 to 93% in 2007.

An explosion in drug laws and incarcerations saw the light of the day after President Nixon launched the US War on Drugs in 1971. After 50 years of stable incarceration rates, the number of US prisoners went from 161 per 100,000 population in 1972 to 767 per 100,000 in 2007, almost a fivefold increase. In 2007, federal and state prisons and local jails held nearly 2.3 million inmates (over 20% of the world’s prisoners), but if parolees and probationers are included, the total US correctional population exceeded 7 million. Prisoners have become integrated into the corporate world as privately owned prisons and forced labor have become big businesses. Corporations who owe their low labor cost to prison labor have a vested interest in harsh sentences and expansion of the already seemingly infinite number of laws.

Prohibition of drugs does not deter people from using them. If harsh drug laws deterred people from drugs, not many offenders would be found in correctional facilities with a drug offense on their rap sheet. If we consider the 2015 statistics for people on probation and parole, 25% and 31% respectively had a drug charge as their most serious offense, a total of 1,217,305 people. In 2016, 47% and 15% respectively of federal and state prisoners were in prison for drug violations, their most serious offense. In 2017, federal agents and state police made 1,632,921 arrests for drugs violations of which 85.4% of these arrests were for possession.

These numbers clearly show that harsher sentences do not deter people from drugs. This was also echoed in a study by the Pew Research Center which showed that drug use, drug arrest, and overdose death had no statistically significant relationship with drug imprisonment. That is, higher incarceration rates did not deter people from drugs. Drug laws also result in the murders of many people by police in violation of due process. As police are seldom held accountable for their crimes, the legal and constitutional protections of citizens are being lost.

Moreover, prohibition leads to secondary crimes as indicated by a study that showed “17% of state and 18% of federal prisoners committed their crimes to obtain money for drugs.” If cigarettes, alcohol and chocolate were outlawed tomorrow, prices would rise, vicious syndicates would appear and people would commit real crimes, including robbery and theft in order to get their preferred stimulant. Prohibition of alcohol in the US and elsewhere produced a new class of criminal activity. It should come as no surprise that a study by Coyne et al concluded that “prohibition is not only ineffective, but counterproductive, at achieving the goals of policymakers both domestically and abroad … the domestic War on Drugs has contributed to an increase in drug overdoses and fostered and sustained the creation of powerful drug cartels.”

Getting access to drug war expenditures is notoriously difficult, but a 2010 estimate showed that one trillion dollars in tax revenue have been spent on the War on Drugs since 1971. Nevertheless a multiyear study, published in the British Medical Journal by Werb et al, concluded that “expanding efforts at controlling the global illegal drug market through law enforcement are failing.” It appears that the US War on Drugs has been a disaster for the average American, but has enriched certain powerful organizations.

Some governments not only participate in the illegal drug trade, but also approve the production and sale of addictive drugs by private businesses. Many of the drugs that can be purchased on the street from your average drug dealer have been approved by the FDA, including amphetamines, MDMA, opioids, psilocybin and methamphetamine. One of these drugs is called Adzenys which is a formulation of amphetamine (yes, it is the same drug sold by street dealers), has been approved by the FDA for children. This amphetamine drug comes in “great-tasting” fruit and candy flavors for children who do not like taking pills. Possible side effects include addiction, heart attack, and death.

Large pharmaceutical corporations which have deep financial ties to policymakers produce and distribute these drugs on a grand scale. The US government cashes in on the drugs via taxation and through campaign contributions from these multibillion dollar industries. Transparency International concludes: “Pharmaceutical companies can unduly influence national political systems through their large spending power. Pharmaceutical companies often fund candidates that support their position on key issues. Outside of elections, the pharmaceutical industry spends vast sums of money lobbying.”

Professor Peter Gøtzsche, former director of the independent Nordic Cochrane Centre, shows in his book, Lethal Medicine and Organized Crime, that legalized drugs kill at least 200,000 Americans and also 200,000 Europeans every year. Half of those people take their drugs as prescribed, the other half die because of contraindications and accidental overdoses.

Data from the CDC show that in 2017, heroin and cocaine killed 15,482 and 13,942 Americans respectively. However, 88,000 died from alcohol related causes, over 480,000 from tobacco, but zero died from a cannabis overdose.

There are innumerable examples of how laws turn citizens into criminals. On June 1, 2012, in Denmark, anyone without a permit could purchase an air gun with a caliber in excess of 4.5 millimeters. However, on June 2 such possession brought a prison sentence. Every day governments define the word “criminal” more and more broadly. Eventually, by existence alone we will all be criminals.

  1. ah yes, the ever expanding fake laws that politicians proffer upon an unsuspecting brainwashed society, on the minds of the controlled, the propagandized, the indoctrinated, AKA THE SLAVES! “that might be you”.

    Have you ever asked yourself, what makes any of it apply to you/me/us? in all likelihood, it’s never once crossed your mind, and that should jolt you awake! but it won’t! you’re indoctrinated, propagandized, apathetic and you’ve accepted your slavery, without so much as a whimper!
    and slaves do not like it when others start asking questions that they inevitably can’t supply factual answers to!

    Ask any politician, government employee “elected or appointed”, their thugs in costumes aka the police, judges, prosecutors, hell even your parents, if they can prove it applies.. and all you’ll get is, incoherent babbling ..but they sincerely believe that they can prove it all automatically applies to everyone, and that’s it, BELIEF, is all they actually have.. NOT ONE SINGLE TANGIBLE, FACTUAL, PERSONAL FIRSTHAND IRREFUTABLE SHRED OF EVIDENCE THAT THEY CAN ATTEST TO THE VERACITY OF!

    what happens when you demand that anyone who insists that it applies to you, produce some tangible, factual, personal firsthand, irrefutable evidence that they can attest to the veracity of.. well, they just go blank for a moment,. they can’t believe you’d ever ask for EVIDENCE.. You’ll get the regurgitation of hearsay of hearsay, some generalized platitudes, rationalizations, and outright lies, but what you won’t EVER GET, is evidence… you’re just supposed to BLINDLY BELIEVE, just like they do!

    I always enjoy the following phrase, proudly uttered by a multitude of statists, the law applies because the law says it applies.. but that’s just circular reasoning and the epitome of stupid, and it most certainly isn’t evidence, and you’d know that if you weren’t purposely uneducated by the frauds who put the system together!
    They’ll tell you if it didn’t apply, society would run amok, the streets would run with blood, everything would collapse, because that’s what they’ve been INDOCTRINATED TO BELIEVE! this is called FEAR MONGERING AND GAS LIGHTING! it’s very useful on stupid people!
    But since I’ve had this conversation hundreds of times.. i always respond with.. So without threats and coercion, you’re saying that you can’t comport yourself in a civilized manner without the threat of being thrown in a cage or murdered by the local constabulary for some arbitrary and capricious words put to paper by a politician? I love the look on their faces after that statement,.. then after, they’ll say of course not, i’m not talking about myself, they’ll say that they’re talking about society!

    Then they’ll offer as proof of their BELIEF that you have a drivers license/ss#/pay taxes etc and that “in their mind” proves it applies, but we’re all aware that the gvt prosecutes a lot people who have never had/done such things, so that destroys that argument..
    They’ll tell you about all the people that are in prison, if it didn’t apply, then why are all those people in prison!?
    well how many of the people in prison demanded tangible, factual, personal firsthand, irrefutable evidence, supported by a third party witness with firsthand knowledge that it applies, and that any of it applies to them? answer = NONE and NO ONE! and that’s why they’re in prison, they too were fraudulently taught that it applies to them too! and the fraudulent court system, that relies on your willful ignorance, gets to impose it’s arbitrary and capricious laws on every willful fool that is dragged through the door!
    They’ll tell you about the SOCIAL CONTRACT; whereby “you” the citizen, exchanges your duty to support any asinine thing a politician puts to paper and obey it, in exchange for the governments duty to protect you.. OOPS, there’s a flaw “AND CONSTRUCTIVE FRAUD” in that theory though, the government, via it’s own courts “including the taco supreme court” have all consistently ruled that the government HAS NO DUTY TO PROTECT YOU.. SO THAT DESTROYS THAT FRAUDULENT ARGUMENT!!
    FYI; FRAUD VITIATES ANY SO CALLED CONTRACT!
    “i wonder if you’re even aware that the courts have REMOVED the governments duty govts duty to protect you?”,.. I’ve never talked to anyone who insisted that the laws automatically apply to everyone, who actually knew that the government has abrogated “via it’s own courts”, their duty to protect you..
    Should you doubt the assertion that the govt has abrogated its duty to protect you, look up the following phrase, “NO DUTY TO PROTECT YOU” and therein you will discover that you’ve been defrauded by the very government you’re defending.. STOCKHOLM SYNDROME MUCH??

    Once they “the indoctrinated statist” realizes that they can’t prove anything they believe as to the applicability of the FRAUDULENT laws applying to you, they ALL inevitably resort to the following phrase, spoken in a very nasty tone,. “IF YOU DON’T LIKE IT HERE, LEAVE” followed by some colorful, spiteful and hateful words.. as though that ends the conversation.. what it does is, prove that NO EVIDENCE EXISTS, THERE IS ZERO PROOF THAT ANY OF THE BS APPLIES TO YOU!
    This causes a tremendous amount of cognitive dissonance in the statist SLAVE mind.. it makes them very very upset!
    It’s even more upsetting to those in a government position! they realize their power is being questioned, and they can’t handle that!

    FYI: THERE IS NOT NOW, NOR HAS THERE EVER BEEN, NOR WILL THERE EVER BE ANY EVIDENCE TO PROVE ANY OF IT APPLIES TO YOU! JUST PROPAGANDA, FRAUD, LIES, DECEIT, AND INDOCTRINATION and the continued insistence that it all applies even though no one can prove it!

  2. I find it difficult to believe after all these years, that people of this world, when it became habitable again, were given 10 of the most SENSIBLE laws ever given by someone, who we cannot even come close to comprehending, and who most claim know all the ‘ins’ & ‘outs’ of, and the ‘codes’ of, and all the ‘secrets’ hidden here, or there, yet not one of these laws has been implemented in their original form.

    The Kings & Queens of old are mostly responsible, and so too are ALL the major religions who controlled the royals, for their pollution of the Original Ten Commandments, bastardizing them and branching out in all directions with a new version of something opinionated, but tangible enough for the ‘sheep’ to believe in, and follow, thereby guaranteeing the comforts and expenses of those with the brainpower to keep the simple folk at bay.
    These Ten Original, simple laws for life, cover EVERYTHING you and I will ever confront, in all of our lives, no matter where you’re from, or where you’re going, and also when read and spoken, in their original form, answer all questions concerning everything.
    Can also heal the body from the cells in the bones to the mindset within the aura!

  3. “The only power any government has is the power to crack down on criminals. Well, when there aren’t enough criminals, one makes them. One declares so many things to be a crime that it becomes impossible for men to live without breaking laws.”
    Ayn Rand
    “Few of us can easily surrender our belief that society must somehow make sense. The thought that The State has lost its mind and is punishing so many innocent people is intolerable. And so the evidence has to be internally denied.” — Arthur Miller 

  4. in the poor USA a few things are still
    the same.
    Good guys finish last.
    and suckers never get an even break.

    as a child I thought that there should be only around 800 laws total,
    adding a new law would require the removal of an older law?
    sort of like the 10 commandments, they haven’t added an eleventh commandment lately.
    not without trying.
