"Law without order: a constant busybodying about behavior that does not at all derive from a shared moral consensus." is how political writer Thomas Flemming described the term coined by Samuel L. Francis known as "Anarcho Tyranny" This thread is for discussing the creeping state of "Anarcho Tyranny" that Americans are beginning to witness more frequently everyday. Here you will find discussion of what Anarcho Tyranny is, why this system is now condoned by our decadent Managerial class, as well as examples of both the over zealousness of The State's enforcement of petty crimes on Middle America and the lack of enforcement of more serious crimes by the growing criminal underclass that are now seen in everyday life.
What we have in this country today, then, is both anarchy (the failure of the state to enforce the laws) and, at the same time, tyranny – the enforcement of laws by the state for oppressive purposes; the criminalization of the law-abiding and innocent through exorbitant taxation, bureaucratic regulation, the invasion of privacy, and the engineering of social institutions, such as the family and local schools; the imposition of thought control through "sensitivity training" and multiculturalist curricula, "hate crime" laws, gun-control laws that punish or disarm otherwise law-abiding citizens but have no impact on violent criminals who get guns illegally, and a vast labyrinth of other measures. In a word, anarcho-tyranny.
Francis further expanded on the idea that anarcho-tyranny is built into the managerial system and that even though the government is "perfectly capable" of enforcing the laws needed to protect ordinary citizens it refuses to do so. Instead the state focuses law enforcement on the petty crimes of the middle class because it generates revenue, unlike robbery, immigration enforcement, theft, etc which generate no revenue.
The laws that are enforced are either those that extend or entrench the power of the state and its allies and internal elites ... or else they are the laws that directly punish those recalcitrant and "pathological" elements in society who insist on behaving according to traditional norms – people who do not like to pay taxes, wear seat belts, or deliver their children to the mind-bending therapists who run the public schools; or the people who own and keep firearms, display or even wear the Confederate flag, put up Christmas trees, spank their children, and quote the Constitution or the Bible – not to mention dissident political figures who actually run for office and try to do something about mass immigration by Third World populations
Let's take this recent example of supermarket pederasty to illustrate what we're talking about here.
A 4-year-old boy was allegedly groped in a bathroom at the Market Basket by a store employee last month, inciting the boy’s father to attack the perpetrator during the incident. Valerio Rodriguez, 71, of Providence, was charged with a felony count of indecent assault and battery on a child under 14 after he reached underneath a bathroom dividing wall and touched the boy high on his leg as he was standing on a bucket to use the adjacent urinal, police say.
The boy’s father, Jason R. Beatrice, 31, of Oak Street, who was also in the washroom during the incident, told police he forced open the stall door and punched Rodriguez several times, resulting in a minor cut on the suspect’s lip and a welt on the middle of his head.
Speaking through a store employee, Rodriguez, who speaks Spanish, told police he was wrong for touching the boy and “only fooling around.”
Police charged Beatrice with assault for hitting Rodriguez, saying they empathized with his actions but would have preferred Beatrice detain the suspect until police arrived.
Although Rodriguez faces a felony charge, police decided not to arrest the suspect at the scene due to his advanced aged and lack of a criminal record.
Rodriguez was still seen working at the Market Basket as recently as last week.
An irony of a collapsing society is that even as citizens lose their liberty, they also lose the protections afforded by rule of law.
