The frontier of the battle line lies between the 4th and the 5th rung of Kohlberg's Ladder of Moral Reasoning.
The DoJ is operating no higher than the 4th rung, corresponding to the Law and Order Model, also known as the Crime and Punishment Model.
The 5th rung is called the Social Contract Model. It is not yet very well known outside of academia. I reckon it won't gain a foothold until at least 25% of the population become well-educated in the STEM disciplines.
The 4th rung has an inherent affliction that we might characterize as "brain cancer."
The more familiar name for that particular type of cancer is corruption.
Brain cancer is an insidious killer.
But it's not the only scourge afflicting the Body Politic.
