Do what you will shall be the whole of the law. 

Is Guantánamo defining law and justice for the future of this planet on a platform of bogus terrorism? 

Extreme right wing politics, religion and fiscal policies have been growing for some decades, but what we are seeing today in global politics is the abandonment of reason and rationalism. Like the bogus election of Bush in 2000, the far right no longer attempts to justify or reason its position, it does exactly what it wants to do, whenever and wherever it chooses. 

It ignores the UN, it ignores public outcry, it ignores the Geneva Convention, it ignores the rule of law, and has redefined law as justice to the highest bidder. It no longer cares to submit itself to any kind of democratic process. It is the right of might. It is modern ultra extreme politics, sometimes referred to as neo-conservatism. 

It is what George Bush referred to at the Al Smith Memorial Dinner when he memorably 'quipped', "This is an impressive crowd - the haves and the have-mores. Some people call you the elite; I call you my base." He wasn't joking.
