Those who do the bidding of a supposed ‘authority’ usually go out of their way to make it clear that they are doing so. When a soldier dons his military attire, marches in formation, or gets into a military vehicle; when a police man puts on his uniform and gets into the car with disco lights on top and marked as ‘POLICE’; when a plain clothes ‘government’ agent shows his ‘official ID’ card or announces his ‘official title’, he is making a very specific statement, which can be summed up as follows: ‘I am not acting as a thinking, responsible, independent human being, and should not be treated as such. I am not personally responsible for my actions, because I am not acting from my own free will or my own judgement of right and wrong.
I am, instead, acting as the tool of something superhuman, something with the right to rule over you and control you. As such, I can do the things you can’t. I have rights that you don’t. You must do as I say, submit to my commands, and treat me as your superior, because I am not a mere human being. I have risen above that.
Through my unquestioning obedience and loyalty to my masters, I have become a piece of the superhuman entity called ‘authority’. As a result, the rules of human morality do not apply to me, and my actions should not be judged by the usual standards of human behaviour.’
This bizarre, mystical, cult-like belief is held by every ‘law enforcer’ in the world. It is horribly dangerous for anyone to imagine himself to have an exemption from the basic rules of right and wrong, yet that is exactly what every agent of ‘government’ imagines. Despite the fact that soldiers and ‘law enforcers’ usually display their ‘official’ uniforms with great pride, what they are actually doing is publicly displaying that fact that they are delusional, have a completely warped and demented view of reality, and have betrayed the very thing that made them human: their free will and the personal responsibility that goes along with it.
Every person who claims to act on behalf of ‘authority’ is demonstrating that he has accepted an utterly ridiculous lie: that his position, his badge, his fancy dress costume, his office dramatically changes what behaviours are moral and what behaviours are immoral. The idea is patently insane, but is rarely recognized as such because even the victims of the enforcers share in this delusion.Source here
