"In existing criminology there are concepts:
a criminal man, a criminal profession, a criminal society,
a criminal sect, and a criminal tribe,
but there is no concept of a criminal state,
or a criminal government, or criminal legislation.
Consequently, the biggest crimes actually escape being called crimes."
by:
P. D. Ouspensky
[Pyotr Demianovich Ouspenskii] (1878-1947) Russian esotericist

If I steal your money it's a crime; when the government steals your money, it's business as usual.

EXACTLY, to the point!

If I print up paper money unsecured by an asset, start spending it, which de-values the money supply and causes inflation, I'm guilty of counterfeiting. When the government and the privately owned Federal Reserve does the same thing on a far, far greater scale, it's called our monetary system. Oh, wait, this is just one result of a criminal state, a criminal government or criminal legislation.
