The more corrupt the state, the more numerous the laws.

Wow. Very rarely do I read an article that blows my socks off. This one did it (it's a bit long but so worth it.) It ever so eloquently expressed the sentiments I have been stumbling over since September. That every aspect of western civilization is not inherently evil and oppressive. That western civilization and dead white men gave us the Magna Carta, the Declaration of Independence, the Bill of Rights, The Constitution, Freed the slaves, Gave women the vote, etc... That in fact western civilization has produced more wealth, more freedom, and greater standards of living for more people than anything else in human history.
