Evil comes so often, not in the form of the devil and beasts from hell, but from nice people doing horrible things.
The more resources of the State or private institutions at their disposal the worst the offences.
Hitler was described as 'charming' and a 'quietly spoken paternal figure' by most who knew him.
Robert McNamara took part in terrible activities such as firebombing 100,000 Japanese to death in one night.
Here we have the head of 'Royal Dutch Shell' explaining what a lovely fellow he is while in the Niger Delta, private armies, working for RDS, kill activists for protesting the gross human rights violations of the company as well as it's abysmal ecological record

The problem of anything written is that as soon as it's written it makes it possible to corrupt. "The map is not the territory", as some famous military leader once said. That means as soon as its written down you can twist it around, squeeze it until unrecognizable because the written word is not actually the thing it symbolizes - it's just a combination of letters. That's how bureaucrats get away with breaking every thinkable law you can imagine: if it's written down you can always find a loophole - in fact; the more laws written down, the more loopholes you get.
De Maistre defines the dilemma perfectly:
<a href="http://www.geocities.com/integral_tradition/divine.html">"THE DIVINE ORIGINS OF CONSTITUTIONS</a>
From Joseph de Maistre. Essay on the Generative Principle of Political Constitutions (1810)
The more we examine the influence of human agency in the formation of political constitutions, the greater will be our conviction that it enters there only in a manner infinitely subordinate, or as a simple instrument; and I do not believe there remains the least doubt of the incontestable truth of the following propositions: -
1. That the fundamental principles of political constitutions exist before all written law.
2. That a constitutional law is, and can only be, the development or sanction of an unwritten pre-existing right.
3. That which is most essential, most intrinsically constitutional, and truly fundamental, is never written, and could not be, without endangering the state.
4. That the weakness and fragility of a constitution are actually in direct proportion to the multiplicity of written constitutional articles."(My emphasis.)
This is the reason ORAL tradition is the STRONGER tradition compared to a WRITTEN tradition. As long as its oral it's a LIVING tradition; everyone whose tradition it is is LIVING it all the time - it's continuous. The moment you start WRITING it down it's a dead tradition and it starts stagnating, decaying and degenerating. A sure sign a tradition is doomed to fall apart is the need to write it down to save it. If people don't have it in their mind, heart, blood, soul; if people don't LIVE their tradition it's dead.

Yes, good point. Language is so importent and they want to control all that as well.
Who talks about politics and current affairs?
Who talks about the latest wanker on American idol?
Until people get interested in who and how their lives are run their will be tyranny.
On the point of writing things down...'Butcher'/'Bomber' Harris was questioned about law and the terror bombing of civilian areas.
He replied Great Britain had followed the available law scrupously..."ban on dropping bombs from derigibles (airships) over civilian areas".
