The Rule of Law

With Liberty and Justice for Some,
How the Law Is Used to Destroy
Equality and Protect the Powerful
 "The rule of law, as we have always understood it, has been radically degraded in a way that wasn't previously true," said Glenn Greenwald last year.

Listening to Scott Walker's glib and ignorant dismissal of the rule of law and civil rights; observing Madison, Wisconsin Capitol Police Chief David Erwin's disdain for liberty, watching the Wisconsin Supreme Court's GOP majority, Greenwald's observation is of particular relevance.

"The law is also a respecter of reality," notes Greenwald.

Reality. Never in my life time have we seen such contempt for facts and the law.
