Toothless Democracy is a reference to a democratic nations' justice system burdened and in decline. Includes sheer percentage of new laws created that are affecting its' populace. Promotion of evil, like abortion, to the highest status of 'Law of the land'. Combined with keeping non-functioning laws on record and decriminalizing laws that can be ignored for no punishment to enforce. The result is a chaotic jumble of legal system requirements. In effect, a bureaucracy crafted specifically for private sector law firms to exploit. An endless supply of legal cases and lawyers working against 'blind justice'.
