Pollution by government agencies makes me sick. That includes never-prosecuted environmental crimes by the former U.S. Atomic Energy Commission (since 1977 called DoE, a/k/a the Department of Energy a/k/a "Denier of Everything"), and other government polluters, like the City of St. Augustine and the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania.
Government lawbreaking led Justice Brandeis to write in dissent in a surveillance case, a dissent that became the law of the land, that "Decency, security, and liberty alike demand that government officials shall be subjected to the same rules of conduct that are commands to the citizen. In a government of laws, existence of the government will be imperiled if it fails to observe the law scrupulously. Our government is the potent, the omnipresent teacher. For good or for ill, it teaches the whole people by its example. Crime is contagious. If the government becomes a lawbreaker, it breeds contempt for law; it invites every man to become a law unto himself; it invites anarchy. Olmstead v. United States, 277 U.S. 438 (1928)(Brandeis, J., dissenting."
