Jurisprudence of Terror


Dean Gotcher

"Jurisprudence of terror takes two forms; loosely defined rules which produces unpredictable law, and spontaneous changes in rules to best suit the state."  (R. W. Makepeace and Croom Helm, Marxist Ideology and Soviet Criminal Law)  When leaders of the nation make executive laws and the courts usurp the laws of the citizens for the sake of "the greater good," then the people, being made subject to tyranny, are oppressed.  Karl Marx wrote: "Laws must not fetter human life; but yield to it; they must change as the needs and capacities of the people change." (Karl Marx, Critique of Hegel's Philosophy of Right)   In other words, laws must progressively move away from restraints upon man's carnal nature, becoming of and for carnal nature itself, if man to become himself, i.e. 'liberated' from Godly restraint.  Immanuel Kant wrote: "Zweckmäßigkeit ohne Zweck; Gesetzmäßigkeit ohne Gesetz," i.e. "purposiveness without purpose; lawfulness without law." (Immanuel Kant, Critique of Judgment)  Thus, according to Kant, purpose and law must emanate from nature only, i.e. from the laws of the flesh ("human nature") if man is to supersed (negate) any external authority (the laws of God) which get in his way of pleasure.  Thus the laws of nature (the "feelings" or sensation of pleasure) must become the drive and the purpose of life, i.e. must determine the meaning of life in and of itself if man is to become of, for, and by himself only.  When the law of the child, 'liberated' from the Father's authority, i.e. man 'liberated' from Godly restraint becomes the law of the land then anarchy (abomination) reigns (with impunity).  It is where we find ourselves these days.  In a land 'liberated' from Godly restraint, subject to the abominations of man's wicked heart, with those in public office "leading" the way.
