Each day millions of cars and commuters drive throughout the streets of Los Angeles with a statistically insignificant number of accidents (Number of trips vs. number of accidents). How is this possible? In all of America we have traffic laws and a system of moving people and cars that is highly organized. Peace comes from organization not chaos. The peace filled world will mimic traffic in Los Angeles.
We have dashed white lines, solid white lines, dashed yellow lines, solid yellow lines and solid double yellow lines. The American driver knows what each line means and consciously makes choices to keep traffic flowing. The solid double yellow line painted on the two lane highway keeps cars flowing in opposite directions from colliding. Isn’t that a mind blowing concept that a line painted on the road can keep people with opposing agendas from killing each other? A mere line? I am fascinated by all of the traffic laws and system of traffic lights, road signs, roads, streets, highways, freeways, and toll-ways that keep America moving. What lies at the foundation of this system and the other systems that create peaceful co-existence in America is the “Rule of Law”.
Thomas Paine, in “Common Sense” stated that “In America, the law is King. For as in absolute governments the king is law, so in free countries the law ought to be king; and there ought to be no other.” The streets of Los Angeles confirm.
From duffle bags to 40' containers of single use medical supplies we shipped relief all over the world. Things that we often throw away in America can be quite useful in other countries.
