Referring back to the statist who brought up the "secure the border" "solution" to the programmable bullet killer drone issue, he says if government "needs" to do something to "protect" (control) the people, but it's not legal... well, the "law" is infinitely malleable.
If something isn't legal, just make up a law to make it legal. Simple!
Some people abuse drugs-- ban them.
Some people abuse guns-- ban them.
Government likes to control how people travel-- require licenses to be allowed to travel and set up checkpoints.
Some people use privacy to plot to harm the innocent-- eliminate all illusions of privacy.
Anything that would limit government power can be addressed by just passing a new "law" making it "legal". Right?
Statism is a religion. Government is its god, and this god's magic power is legislation and bureaucratic rules. Through "laws" all things are possible. At least, that's what government supremacists believe.
