Wie Interpreten von Recht das Recht verändern, brechen, stürzen können

(23.Juni 2014)

Nun kommt ein Kreislauf in Gang, der in der Geschichte der Menschheit noch nie anders war, in den Hierarchien aller Gesellschaften. Staaten und Organisationen auftritt und diametral mit der Zeitspanne seines (nicht durch störende Gewaltenteilung oder checks & balances belästigten) Ablaufs eskaliert:

Je mehr und je länger die Praxis der ausführenden Funktionäre / Amtsinhaber und ihrer nach eigenem Ermessen interpretierten Begriffe und Rechtsbegriffe anhält und von der Gesellschaft akzeptiert wird, verändert diese merklich oder unmerklich ihre eigene Auffassung dieser Begriffe bzw Rechtsbegriffe und passt sie der Rechtsauffassung der Ausführenden bzw Amtsträger und Funktionäre an.

Die Gesellschaft akzeptiert also nach und nach eine Umdeutung der (rechtlichen) Standards durch diejenigen, die sie lediglich ausführen müssen oder sogar selbst beschlossen haben, aber nicht versucht haben sie in aller Öffentlichkeit zu verändern.

Nun aber kann der neue Standard, den man durch veränderte Praxis und eigene Auslegung von Begriffen, Rechtsbegriffen und Recht in der Gesellschaft verankert hat, in neue Gesetze gegossen werden.

Die Interpretation der Norm – die bewusst, gezielt und unauffällig eingesetzt auch eine faktisch unbegrenzte Abweichung von der Norm, einen Bruch beinhalten kann – ist so die Norm selbst geworden. Eigentlich Illegales wird legal. Oder umgekehrt.

Die Gesellschaft aber, hat sie die Interpretation der Norm in Form der veränderten Praxis erst lang genug hingenommen, dann als neue Norm akzeptiert und nachfolgend auch deren Umsetzung in neue Gesetze und / oder Bestimmungen zugesehen, müsste nun enorme Aktivkräfte entwickeln um diesen ganzen Prozess wieder zurückzudrehen und (gesamtgesellschaftlich betrachtet) zu ihren Gunsten wieder zu verändern.

Doch im Gegenteil droht nun der Gesellschaft, erst einmal durch die ausführenden kreativen Kunstfreunde und Interpreten ausgetrickst und überwunden, eine weitere Interpretation der neuen Norm, Gesetze oder Vorschriften, abermals zugunsten der Funktionäre, die dann abermals in eine veränderte Norm und schließlich in neuen Rechtsvorschriften, Gesetzen und / oder Recht mündet.

Geht der ganze Prozess unauffällig (z.B. weil im Zeitlupentempo), unbemerkt und gar mehrfach über die Bühne, lässt sich so nicht nur eine Organisation (wie eine Partei), sondern eine Gesellschaft verändern.

Erfolgen diese Prozesse in Absprache oder auf Befehl durch eine Vielzahl von Personen, gerade in Schlüsselpositionen, lässt sich so eine Gesellschaft gezielt nach den Vorstellungen nur einer Handvoll Personen verändern.

Erfolgen diese Prozesse in Absprache und / oder auf Befehl der höchsten staatlichen Ebenen, in Exekutive, Legislative oder Judikative, gar allen zusammen, im Geheimen, in Absprache mit einer ausländischen Macht, oder gleich mit mehreren, nennt man so etwas Hochverrat und einen organisierten Staatsstreich.

This Is Definitely a Coup. Israel Is on Its Way to Becoming a Dictatorship

It can be very confusing when a “coup from above” takes place. On the face of it, everything looks normal. There are no tanks in the streets, and no general with a uniform sagging with medals interrupts the television broadcasts. The coup occurs behind closed doors, with laws being passed and decrees being signed that remove all restraints on the government, and dismantle all checks and balances. Of course, the government does not declare that it is carrying out a coup. It claims only that it is passing some much-needed reforms, “for the good of the people.”

Netanyahu’s pre-trip interview with La Repubblica contains interesting language before meeting ‚post-fascist‘ Meloni: History ‚favors the strong,‘ he opines, trashing the idea that the far-right is dangerous. The true threat comes from the „extreme left“

Russia fires barrage of hypersonic missiles, piercing Ukrainian air defenses

Russia has a limited supply of such missiles and has never sent so many toward Ukraine in a single attack. Ukraine’s defense minister, Oleksii Reznikov, claimed in November that Russia had used 16 Kinzhal missiles over the course of the war and retained stocks of 42 missiles after replacing those it had fired.

Ukrainian officials have pleaded for their Western supporters, including the United States, to share stronger air defense systems, including the Patriot system, to help stop attacks that are undetectable with their existing hardware.

The Eight Ways Herzog Is Damaging Israeli Democracy

Ever since the coup against our system of government – and the sweeping opposition to it – began, President Isaac Herzog has been doing damage to Israel’s democracy. Even if his intentions are good, at this point we have to call a spade a spade and urge him to stop.

Republicans say new tax bill is DOA. It would raise Medicare$ from 3.8% to 5% for income greater than $400K. Also tax wealthy >$100 million and families 20% on income & stocks.

I guess this would be bad for @GOP next taxes on bribes.

Biden Is Set to Detail Nearly $3 Trillion in Measures to Reduce Deficits

Mr. Biden’s plans to trim the deficit are unlikely to mollify Republicans. He has refused to negotiate over the debt limit and has said he will not cut benefits for Social Security or Medicare, two popular safety net programs. But he has said repeatedly that he is open to reducing deficits by raising taxes on corporations and the rich.

Biden Wants a Wealth Tax: Should Billionaires Pay More?

For example, in 2021, a ProPublica report indicated that the richest twenty-five Americans had an effective zero percent tax rate. When the ProPublica analysis was first released, it generated controversy over confidentiality of taxpayer information. But the data made some people aware of how the very wealthy can sometimes avoid paying federal taxes.

So, why does all of this matter? Well, there’s a wealth distribution gap in America.
