We live in a society of law. Our politicians speak of following the rule of law and operating a rules-based system.
I’ll also say that having seen our jury system, I’m relatively confident I’d be acquitted if falsely tried for a crime. Law is also the basis of all our rights.
It’s not all good. Many a tyranny has done unspeakable things legally, because they get to make the laws of the land.
Our entire system of government is setup to reform the laws of the land, so it is constituionally implicit that our law is not perfect.
If you could change or repeal any law that you think is crap, which would it be?
My starter for ten is the legalisation of a lot of controlled substances. My rationale for that is that we’re paying a lot of money to enforce something that people are doing anyway, and if people are going to do those things, best that they do them with a degree of protection outside the criminal system.
If bits of the law are an ass, which shit would you flush first?
