The long, slow death of the rule of law in America

The most disturbing aspect of the scandal around Hillary Clinton’s use of a private e-mail server during her tenure as secretary of state is not the former first lady’s penchant for secrecy. In fact, we all ought to be a little taken aback that Mrs. Clinton’s poll numbers are declining as a result of that storyline. It boggles the mind to imagine that, after a quarter-century, there’s a slice of the electorate just now coming to the realization that she is not a terribly forthcoming politician.

  • The rule of law is definitely in its death throes in the US since Obama came to power in questionable ways and means and nobody had the guts to react.
    The rule of law depends on popular and official upholding of the rule of law – otherwise it is a dead letter.
    The same movement against rule of law is happening in European and other Western countries, including Canada. It is a gradual erosion, but it is evident for all to see.
    What has happened is that politicians have realized that no one in today’s complex societies has the power to do anything about it.
