Jail Opposition Political Leaders? Wait, What?

The Brits had an expression:”That simply isn’t done.” The Grant and Harding administrations were wracked by scandals, but no one thought of criminally charging an ex-president. Charging Trump inevitably leads to charging Biden when he leaves office, and so on into the future.

When people forget “That simply isn’t done,” they lose all self-control. Then lawbooks full of laws will not suffice to control human behavior. When we step over enough lines, we forget there are lines. Then it’s every man for himself.

To call this a banana republic is to insult banana republics. They have no tradition of respect for political opponents. What’s our excuse?
