The Power of Law

William Roper: So, now you give the Devil the benefit of law!

Sir Thomas More: Yes! What would you do? Cut a great road through the law to get after the Devil?

William Roper: Yes, I’d cut down every law in England to do that!

Sir Thomas More: Oh? And when the last law was down, and the Devil turned ’round on you, where would you hide, Roper, the laws all being flat? This country is planted thick with laws, from coast to coast, Man’s laws, not God’s! And if you cut them down, and you’re just the man to do it, do you really think you could stand upright in the winds that would blow then? Yes, I’d give the Devil benefit of law, for my own safety’s sake!

– Sir Thomas More from “A Man for All Seasons”

Our theme on the Solari Report this week is “the power of law.”

We are watching the world divide between those who believe in the law and those who don’t. The people who believe in the law are sprinkled throughout all groups and all nations. The divide and conquer tactics being used by political leadership have been effective at preventing us from getting together by trying to firm us into specific ethnic, religious or national groupings.

Last night, as a result of a Solari Report subscribers strong request, I finished Against Our Better Judgement by Alison Weir regarding the US role in the creation of the state of Israel. Weir describes the challenges anticipated in the creation that are the roots of the problems we are experiencing in the Gaza today. Weir does a remarkable job of pulling together a wide variety of source materials to provide an important piece of history on the US relationship with Israel.
