Nicely said!

Arbitrary power. This is the underlying principle of many statute
laws - arbitrary power, whether it's corporations, copyrights and
patents, police immunity and a zillion (precise number) other evils.

And indeed, as Marxos said, most "lazy arse Whites" are too well fed
and enjoying their shiny things to ever stand up in any "court of
law" to proclaim an injustice.

And yet in a heartbeat they do proclaim "the rule of law" and
"democratic principles".
