Respect For Law

The law is supposed to be on the whole fair. People are expected to give up seeking personal justice, even when the law fails in some particular instance. However, when corporations have an overwhelming advantage by legally buying politicians to write the laws to favour them and hire lawyers delay and trick, then respect for the law no longer makes sense. Similarly, when corporations are driving the earth to suicide by refusing to reduce greenhouse gases, it a bit like being a good Jew co-operating as he is lead to the gas chamber if you let them get away with it.
