Another way to look at this is that corrupt governments multiply laws, creating them with broader scope and less definition. This is the way tryrannical governments can keep people in fear of their government. A poorly defined law with broad scope is created for the simple purpose that enemies of the state may be silenced by being prosecuted for crimes that are basically undefined and against which there can be no defense. The rule of law is destroyed by the multiplication of such rules. We are seeing an unlimited state in formation.
