When politicians use dishonesty when getting legislation passed in their jurisdiction, they make society less stable because they hurt the very fabric of society from which it exists.
Can you remember when someone was given special privileges that you thought were unjust to you and other people in your group? Whether it was when you were a child or an adult, such injustices cause hard feelings among people.
They hurt society and individuals because some feel equality is not applied to all people with respect to the laws of the land. We, as an honest society, must do all we can to fairly and equitably pass and deliver justice to all.
Unfortunately, it is quite common to see actions on a daily basis—where ever one lives—that appear to be less than admirable for a law-abiding society.
For instance, laws are made to control speeds on our roads and highways. They are made to keep people safe while traveling about on our highways and byways. However, maximum speed limits only seem to be vague guides for most people.
A speed limit of 105 kilometers per hour (65 miles per hour) often times looks more like a minimum speed limit rather than a maximum speed limit as drivers in motor vehicles travel at excessively speeds down our roadways.
Are you being honest by knowingly driving at excessive speeds above a posted speed limit--one that has been passed by politicians elected by their constituents?
If you are caught breaking such a law, you are fined with a monetary fine for going over the speed limit and possibly even given jail or prison time if the offense is major in proportions, such as killing someone while you drive recklessly down the road.
