The Lawless: A Triptych
A Good Citizen follows all the Laws set forth by the benevolent Government. Trust the authority of the State. Questions are against the law.
BELIEVE IN THE LAW
The Government cares about you. The Government wants you to be happy. Do not deviate from the Government's prescribed conditions of happiness.
OBEY ONLY THE LAW
Never question the Law, for that leads to anarchy. Always obey, lest you be found undesirable. Undesirables do not deserve life. And you, Good Citizen, want to live, don't you?
