The Changing Nature of Law and Governance in the Great Recession

Today, we are living the culmination of many years of big money buying big government.  Working under cover and in the shadows, many new laws have been written, and many new powers have been assumed by government.  While there may be no way to stop the onslaught, I submit this one for consideration.

As I wrote previously, the U.S. Constitution is still the law of the land, and it still includes the Bill of Rights.  Until it is changed (or proven worthless), we still have the courts to take back our government and to fix any problems with the system.

The good news is, all of the new laws on the books, and all of the new powers assumed by government, are subject to legal review. And many of these, if challenged, will ultimately be found unconstitional.  The bad news is, it could take years (even decades) before cases like this are decided at the national level.

case is decimay take years pursuing this using a traditional approach would take years, if not decades.

In order for this to work, however, we’ll need to think outside of the box.

Just like the Internet has drastically changed industries like music and travel, I predict the Internet will soon change our concepts of law and governance.

how we are

Previously, I have written how we are entering a period of rapid changed.  I described how computer technologies and the Internet had disrupted numerous industries, including music, travel, newspapers and TV.  Today, we’ll continue the discussion and explore how these changes are/will be impacting law and governance.
