Most of us were told as children that we need to follow the rules and be good little boys and girls. As we got older, we were told in school that we have a government of laws and that everyone has to follow those laws. As we got older and moved into the bigger society, we started to understand that what we had been taught was mostly true but not totally true for all of us. We learned that the rules and limits that applied to most of us just didn’t apply to some of us. This was disappointing and very disillusioning. I am coming to understand that this non-application is much more built into our society than I had suspected. There are a few of us who really are above the law. You may not find this to be consistent with your experience; but I suspect we can agree that it is at least something worth considering.
