is most corrupt" ~Roman Historian 70ce
If we are governed by principles, then we don't need the deadly legalism that allows for all sorts of mischief...someone can always find a way around laws, as we know too well.
You have a few core principles well stated, and then demand that everything else is congruent w those principles.
Sometimes this is a serious blow to the system.
There is no way to recover from this situation if it is allowed to persist.
This is not a partisan point. A systems one. I posit we need a #systemic understanding/review...
