BY: LARRY BECK
America's rule of law falters, plunging into a twilight zone. Daily dramas blur good vs. evil, hampering resolution.
Rule of law and consent of the governed anchor effective governance, vital for well-functioning societies.
America faces challenges, with news unfolding before a shared understanding. Election dispute persists.
Many believe Trump is the rightful President, complicating efforts to understand and address ongoing issues.
US Supreme Court, once respected, now reflects a predictable, flawed, and privileged Christian nationalist orthodoxy.
Supreme Court's moral decline mocks rule of law, resembling a corporate board, lacking public trust.
Congressional dysfunction, influence peddling erode government branches, compromising rule of law and ethical consensus.
Justice, law, and ethics disconnect fuels divergent perspectives, evident in the response to gun violence.
