are written by the United Countries of the Northern Hemisphere government.

So you've heard about this government. But you look around and can't find any evidence it exists. So it has about as much significance in your life as the laws in Zimbabwe or Thailand.

You look through this book of laws and some make sense. But some seem crazy. Like laws banning eating crab legs. Crab legs are good though. So you continue eating them.

You run into more people passing out this book of laws. So you ask them about this United Countries of the Northern Hemisphere government. They tell you only believers in it have proof it exists. But you have to believe to be shown the proof of its existence. Yet if you don't believe and break the laws, one day you will be judged for it.

So you go on eating crab legs even though you know it is against this law book of a government you have never seen any proof that it exists.

Then one day decades down the road you are seized and taken before this government's court, found guilty of breaking the law and executed.

Is this justice?
