There we are dealing with the totalitarian nature of ALL states. They have multiple agencies to keep people in line in the name of “crime” and we forget that “crimes” are nothing but something defined by the dominant and domineering elite. “What is a crime on this side of the Pyrenees is not on the other side, used to say Michel de Montaigne in the 16th century in the midst of the religious wars in Europe. And I could say it is the same in Buddhist or Chinese logic: when the teacher points at the moon, the bad student looks at his finger. Just as if the whole world were a few teachers and many students and the students have to do what the teachers are telling them to do. That’s what we call ideology and crimes are part of this ideology.
