The Lawlessness of Authoritarianism

Bureaucracy contributes to lawlessness.  The harder you make it for law-abiding people to follow the law in order to live their lives, the more criminals you make of innocent people.  It should be difficult to break the law, not difficult to follow it.

This is exactly why the sole and only legitimate purpose of the law is to protect life, liberty and property, not to impose new arbitrary rules.  The more agencies created to enact new rules, the more the people suffer.  That's been proven again and again.
