The perfect solution

So let's say you're the little emperor, perched chimp-like on your little throne, feeling the waves of hate coming off of two-thirds of the empire's subjects. Your rule-by-fiat act has worn thin with all but your most ardent sycophants.

Your illegal domestic spying program is under fire from all sides. It's illegal and immoral. It "fixes" a problem which wasn't broken in the first place; all it does is prop up your "because I said so" theory of government ("because I said so" is what "unitary executive theory" means in plain English). So what do you do?

You stop the program, right?

Silly. Of course not. Instead, you make it illegal to talk about it. There, problem solved.

    It will fail, but thanks for trying anyway.
