Unbiased constitutional laws, dealing with relationships between the judiciary, the legislature and the executive branches, are normally written by wise men; therefore, the god-like tyrants brand it as demonic. The key issue is, of course, its clear separation of powers!
The ruling psychopaths or narcissists of today and past, the living gods, do not give a damn to such man-written laws. It gives us gooseflesh to see a pigheaded scoundrel calling himself a god, and discarding a thoughtfully prepared unbiased Constitutional Law as satanic. Simultaneously, they hypocritically rely on time-honored findings in the art of management, for instance, the same subject matter of 'authority', separating branches. Their laws are reduced to 'Do as I say'.
Now, comes the critical question: why do we obey a tyrant's rubbish? Well, in management, whether a bakery shop or a government, there is a valid hypothesis called 'Acceptance Theory'. In normal tear and wear situations, we obey an order because it is consistent or compatible with our own interests, the highest incidence is to safeguard our life.
History is teeming with true stories of dim-witted autocrats who believed they had absolute power over their own subjects, including their well-paid body guards. At least, in two recent registered instances we have evidence that two dreadful tyrants were repeatedly stabbed to death when both of them threatened to execute a number of his own immediate staff next morning.
We have a tendency to believe that it is the despot who presides at the top of a hierarchy. It might be true at the beginning, but gradually the tyrant finds himself incapacitated by his own staff. Briefly, he turns into a puppet in the hand of his staff.
Paradoxically, the dependence between oppressor and his staff is not a one-way street. Since the autocrat may get afflicted with a terminal disease or die of a sudden death or be murdered by his family or staff member, in which case his corps will be kept in a top-secret morgue, until the right time, they, the staff, keep the dead tyrant brazenly alive.
In 1970s, an agency used simple tape splicing to falsify the speech of a head of state to broadcast his fabricated words on Radios. Later on TVs, they used and still are using video tricks to manipulate the mobs-let alone the sophisticated Photoshop techniques of today. Another well-known trick is depicted in the following conversation between two females of the past or present tyrants such as wedded wives, call girls, female entourage etc:
I ain't really sure who I slept with last night: the genuine god or one of his several look-alikes.
You silly cow! Don't you have no clues whatsoever?
Honey, they seem pretty damn alike. How do I know who is who?
Silly girl! Each man's whatemecallit has a fixed bearing: to east, southeastern, south or southwestern. If you like one look-alike pretty much, then bribe the Eunuch to let him in again again.
