Man vs the Law; Justice vs Utility (Why Globalism + Utilitarianism is Always Totalitarian)
Freedom and Justice In and By Man through God Christ, naturally by divine command.
From Jean-Jacques Rousseau’s The Social Contract, the opening thought:
“My purpose is to consider if, in political society, there can be any legitimate and sure principle of government, taking men as they are and laws as they might be. In this inquiry I shall try always to bring together what right permits with what interest requires so that justice and utility are in no way divided.”
I found this quote on page 13 of John Rawls’ The Law of Peoples. From the moment I first laid my eyes on Rousseau (in first year of University) with the ‘General Will’ and his ideas on the ‘indolent savage’ I understood this was the route to totalitarianism; that’s why I was surprised that his work was cited by John Rawls, being as he is an ultimate Formulator of the Classical Liberal position on issues of Justice; writing as he does on ‘Fairness as Justice.’
What I have come to realize is that the Globalists and Liberal-Fascists, under the direction of a mouthpiece like Klaus Schwab, are endlessly pursuing Utility and Laws rather than the Heart of Man and Justice. Where Klaus Schwab fails in Rousseau’s impossible congruence is in the fact that justice and utility (short of the differential usage in the CTMU) are most often disjointed or ‘divided’ when it comes to prescribing law and moral right. Whenever humans come to make law for the strict ends of utility, they end up violating moral right and justice in the very conception of these laws. Deontology is the antidote. When you work from the basis of Justice and Duty: then laws tend to pan out.
