Ruling by decree part xxx

Be the 1st to vote.

As usual, no hearing, no debate, no proof, no testimony – just an old fashioned decree by the Queen of Canada telling us to stay home and commit economic suicide.

Leave it to the mandatory French translation of an Order in Council to reveal its true meaning.

Rule by decree is a style of governance allowing quick, unchallenged promulgation of law by a single person or group, and is used primarily by dictators, absolute monarchs and military leaders.

The expression is also sometimes used when describing actions of democratic governments that are perceived to unduly bypass parliamentarian or popular scrutiny.

Rule by decree allows the ruler to arbitrarily edit law, without approval by a legislative assembly.

When a state of emergency, such as martial law, is in place, rule by decree is common. While rule by decree is easily susceptible to the whims and corruption of the person in power, it is also highly efficient: a law can take weeks or months to pass in a legislature, but can be edited with ease by a leader ruling by decree. This is what makes it valuable in emergency situations.
