“Please start paying attention to these slogans, because they have a meaning and purpose.

Notice that Trump NEVER tweets, “RULE OF LAW!” Only “LAW & ORDER!” Why and what’s the difference?

“Rule of law” means that the law is the bar, and it is above EVERYONE. That includes looters, the police, the rich, the poor, politicians, the President. *Anyone* who crosses it is accountable.

“Law & Order,” by contrast, is about hierarchy. There are people who are disorderly, and it is the job of those in power to put them “back in their place.” In an “Law &Order” framework, people with power/authority can’t, by definition, be “disorderly,” because they are restoring order

So if LAW & ORDER is about hierarchy…which hierarchy is that? Hey, remember MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN? Let’s see…when was it “great,” according to Trump & Co.? 🤔 Yeah it’s that hierarchy

The “Law & Order” framework and accompanying hierarchy also allows for selective exceptions to be made when they clash — e.g., pardons. In other words, with, say, Roger Stone, the authorities overreached: In his case, the FBI were jackbooted thugs who got out of control

That is consistent when you view Law and Order as reinforcing hierarchy: Stone has power and is close to authority, so obviously “order” being imposed on him is a mistake. Get it?

A Rule of Law framework implies *equal* justice, and it’s why Trump and his ilk don’t like it — you can’t make exceptions for your friends or reinforce a vision of an ideal, hierarchical social structure

So basically when Trump tweets LAW & ORDER, he’s engaging in Pavlovian conditioning to allow him to tag the people (blacks, Democrats, etc) who need to be “locked up” and also where his pals and others get a Get Out of Jail free card.”-Asha Rangappa

обрадоваться /ɐˈbradəvət͡sə/ verb, perfective – to get excited, to rejoice, to be glad, to be happy

Я так обрадовалась, узнав, что ты возвращаешься. I was so happy when I heard you were coming back.


Prefix о(б)- shows, among other things, that the action naturally reached its peak. Without this prefix, the verb would be imperfective and mean a lasting emotion, not a spike of happiness.
