Misuse of the law

Other Names:
Overuse of legal procedures

The law is systematically debased in the name of the law. Law is applied to all manner of disputes and conflicts, whether political, economic or even sexual, for which it is ill-suited. The law assumes that "right" and "wrong" can always be appropriately and unambiguously distinguished. In most conflicts however, there are gradations of right and wrong which it is inappropriate to use the law to resolve.
