"It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong"


"It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong"

We live in a time and place where we have come excessively close to losing a healthy perspective on law, law enforcement and government. We often forget why these institutions exist in the first place, and I fear these institutions have forgotten as well, or even worse, have purposely set this knowledge to the way side in order to accomplish set goals. 

If you were to refuse an officer of the law's demand to be searched even if you were completely innocent you would most likely face criminal charges. If they insisted and physically forced a search against your will and you resisted by pushing the officer's approach aside (not even violently), you would face charges for assaulting an officer. They can push you around, but you are not allowed to even defend yourself without facing consequences. So, tell me this who's rights supersede the others? 

Is the law above the individual, or is the law for the purpose of the individual? 
Or is the law above the individual but subservient to the populace? 
When you see an officer of the law, do you fear consequences of any shape, form or kind? 
Should the people to be subservient to the government, or the government subservient to the people?

It has always been dangerous to speak truth to power.

@ Tim B.

Very true. This is why I have no power, because I have so much truth. ;)
