Going the Way of Rome: Immorality of People and Government

Accosted woman takes matter into her own hands, teaching a lesson [for everyone]

ArutzSheva. Israeli government employee and olah from Poland Esther Fuerster was walking home last night when she was accosted by an exhibitionist, meters from her home. Posting on Facebook immediately after the ordeal, Fuerster wrote: “I won't say who this was, whether a Jew, an Arab, or a Christian, but on my way home now a religious-looking man turned to me as I approached and opened his trousers presenting his manhood.”

“Tonight, I went off course, approached him and smacked him so hard across the face that his glasses flew off and he tumbled down onto a bench. “He moaned in protest.

“I asked him very loudly and clearly, why did he think that such behavior was acceptable? Why did he think that it was acceptable to flash a stranger? How does he consider himself religious and yet disrespect a woman like this?

“I shook the entire time, but I didn't run this time. I told him to get dressed and go home.”

[i.e. giving perps undeserved rights/status]

Esther Fuerster could have responded by documenting the indecent incident with her phone and reporting it to the police, as rock attack victims are expected to do: "she would have sat in a dreary police waiting room, dictated the complaint to an inspector at a keyboard, be given a piece of paper with a phone number and barcode, and told to wait." After all, what kind of anarchy would reign in this country if everyone acted like Esther Fuerster? [misleading and inappropriate usage of the term anarchy] 
Not “anarchy" or “vigilantism" or "against the law".

"mobocracy, revolution, insurrection, riot, rebellion, mutiny, disorder, chaos, turmoil etc. absence of government; a state of lawlessness or political disorder due to the absence of governmental authority
"As a general rule, self-defense only justifies the use of force when it is used in response to an immediate threat. The threat can be verbal, as long as it puts the intended victim in an immediate fear of physical harm.” 
"the act of defending one's person when physically attacked, as by countering blows or overcoming an assailant” and "an act or instance of defending or protecting one's own interests, property, ideas, etc., as by argument or strategy."
"Self-defense is defined as the right to prevent suffering force or violence through the use of a sufficient level of counteracting force or violence” criminal.findlaw
"autonomy, self-determination, self-sufficiency, sovereignty"

Final reason for the fall of the Roman Empire is the Vandals' plunder of Rome in 455 AD.
[violence: think arab balloon weapons, burning farm fields, missiles destroying homes, raping of women and children].

Decline in Morals and Values.

Purpose of Government: The purpose of our Federal Government, as found in the Preamble of the Constitution, is to "establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our posterity.”.
Government Failure is not just economic, it is also the inability to protect its citizens from warfare, injustice, poverty, immorality and the inability to govern.

A word about Vigilantism: "By definition, vigilantes cannot be legally justified – if they satisfied a justification defense, for example, they would not be law-breakers – but they may well be morally justified, if their aim is to provide the order and justice that the criminal justice system has failed to provide in a breach of the social contractscholarship.law.upenn


The Responsibility every Government has Towards its Citizens:
 is as Protector: Protecting Citizens from Violence.

Firstly, kudos to the brave woman! She put her faith in G-D and did the right thing.
Today, law enforcement in many areas of the world seem (especially in Israel) to side with the villain (perpetrator) and not the victim. A sign that it could lead to dictatorship.

This generation is not being taught in the schools right from wrong and this is a purposeful strategy on the part of govts in order to dumb down the populations where they get to believe that they owe their very beings to govt; this is the strategy of socialism, where people get to be enslaved by first being indoctrinated which leads to all the above from immorality to G-Dlessness.

Anarchy is just plain mob rule, which is very dangerous. Govts are responsible for the safety, security and welfare of their respective nations. Other than that, they have no right to interfere in the citizens' personal life. People need to start thinking for themselves and putting their faith in the Creator who is there for him/her when he/she shows they're with HIM!
