INTERNATIONAL, NATIONAL AND LOCAL PUBLIC NOTICE
The constitution and laws of a state are the basis of the public tranquility,
the firmest support of political authority, and a security for the
liberty of the citizens. But this constitution is a vain <10> phantom, and
the best laws are useless, if they be not religiously observed: the nation
ought then to watch very attentively, in order to render them equally
respected by those who govern, and by the people destined to obey. To
attack the constitution of the state, and to violate its laws, is a capital
crime against society; and if those guilty of it are invested with authority,
they add to this crime a perfidious abuse of the power with which they
are entrusted. The nation ought constantly to repress them with its utmost
vigor and vigilance, as the importance of the case requires. It is
very uncommon to see the laws and constitution of a state openly and
boldly opposed: it is against silent and gradual attacks that a nation ought
to be particularly on its guard. Sudden revolutions strike the imaginations
of men: they are detailed in history; their secret springs are developed.
But we overlook the changes that insensibly happen by a long train
of steps that are but slightly marked. It would be rendering nations an
important service, to shew from history, how many states have thus entirely
changed their nature, and lost their original constitution. This
would awaken the attention of man-kind:—impressed thenceforward
with this excellent maxim (no less essential in politics than in morals),
principiis obsta, 9—they would no longer shut their eyes against innovations,
which, though inconsiderable in themselves, may serve as steps
to mount to higher and more pernicious enterprises.
1: How is it that only a lawyer and or member of the BAR can become an elected Judge?
2: How is it that lawyers can amend a state constitution without a popular vote?
3: How is it that a lawyer can hijack the law from the inhabitants and offer it to the public for a fee?
