But they aren't talking about the rule of law, the enforcement of the codified laws of the land: they're talking about preserving + enforcing those unwritten 'laws' that reinforce their privilege.
Their law is their fantasy.

Question their weakness.
No whataboutism from our side: and when their whataboutism begins, follow this simple argument:
Those men did not get everything right in practice, but the principles they chose as a moral + ethical foundation of a social contract are solid, and just.
We will not make the same mistakes made by our ancestors that conflict with our aims of being the best possible version of ourselves we can be.
America only works if we all try to be the best version of ourselves we can possibly be.
And with the many blessings our nation has bestowed on us, America deserves all our best.
