Malum prohibitum is the State. It is all around, like a matrix. It is, an instrument of administrative dictatorship. Soft dictatorship with no single dictator, lots and lots of them.
The authors of the Declaration of Independence called them Officers, “…erected a multitude of New Offices, and sent hither swarms of Officers to harrass our people, and eat out their substance.”
It is also the fertile ground ripe in which to plant the seeds of resistance from which a crop of rejection of the state springs forth and a harvest of abolition is reaped. As we have seen the beginnings of which on 11-8-2016, also known as MAGA and Drain The Swamp. A dictionary description is in order:

Malum prohibitum (plural mala prohibita, literal translation: “wrong [as or because] prohibited”) is a Latin phrase used in law to refer to conduct that constitutes an unlawful act only by virtue of statute, as opposed to conduct that is evil in and of itself, or malum in se.
Conduct that is so clearly violative of society’s standards for allowable conduct that it is illegal under English common law is usually regarded as malum in se. An offense that is malum prohibitum may not appear on the face to directly violate moral standards. The distinction between these two cases is discussed in State of Washington v. Thaddius X. Anderson:
Criminal offenses can be broken down into two general categories malum in se and malum prohibitum. The distinction between malum in se and malum prohibitum offenses is best characterized as follows: a malum in se offense is “naturally evil as adjudged by the sense of a civilized community,” whereas a malum prohibitum offense is wrong only because a statute makes it so. State v. Horton, 139 N.C. 588, 51 S.E. 945, 946 (1905).
“Public welfare offenses” are a subset of malum prohibitum offenses as they are typically regulatory in nature and often “‘result in no direct or immediate injury to person or property but merely create the danger or probability of it which the law seeks to minimize.'” Bash, 130 Wn.2d at 607 (quoting Morissette v. United States, 342 U.S. 246, 255-56, 72 S. Ct. 240, 96 L. Ed. 288 (1952)); see also State v. Carty, 27 Wn. App. 715, 717, 620 P.2d 137 (1980).
Examples of crimes and torts that might be considered as malum prohibitum—but not malum in se—include:
building or modifying a house without a license
illegal drug use
operating a business without a license
prohibition of alcohol
surrogacy for profit
There is another facet to all of these malum prohibitions. They are ultimately, if one refuses to comply, enforced, by lethal force, sometimes without a shred of Habeas Corpus. That is how critical compliance with malum prohibitum is to the power of the state. That the state has no system of de-escalation, it only has the occurrence of individuals, Officers, within in it’s matrix who may, prohibit in some fashion the ultimate application of violence in the process of forcing compliance.
The system itself has no checks or balances against that power. It only has the will and virtue of those inside the system as a check and balance. “And that isn’t very good my Precious, is it?”, as Gollum would say. The administrative power of the state is in truth, reality, administrative tyranny. It is unaccountable, unapproachable from the outside, it can not be changed from the inside where it is essential to effect positive change by us dirt people, because we are not from the inside. As President Trump is witness to, this tyranny of unaccountable power is a monumental force of obstruction to change from within. It is as such, that it is become a system of treason itself. To survive change, it must act to survive it’s illegitimacy. An almost singular consuming activity. It is Anarchy. Is the state an Anarchy? If it ain’t it is pretty close to one.
Regardless, the state is made of people. It is people who run it, control it, fashion it, mold it to suit their interests and advantage. And it is people, who without the power inherent in Malum prohibitum, would not be able to retain that power, because the power of the sate they hold and protect is predicated on the power to hurt those who that power is directed at. Dirt people.
