What is the difference between the rule of law and a feudal system? Well, a feudal system means whoever has the biggest sword, brutal henchmen and men at arms gets his way. The rich find ways around the rules, the poor don't.

Wheras the rule of law... Depends on the ability to enforce that law... Through having the biggest sword, brutal henchmen and men at arms. The rich find ways around the rules, the poor don't.

So in effect, the law today is absolutely no different from a warlord in his fortified castle issuing orders. We live in a feudal system, albeit one with better marketing.
That is why third world dictators flock to the British legal establishment to protect their image which they do because the British legal establishment has no morals, it values money over lives.
