Problem

Law enforcement complexity

Other Names:
Complex difficult laws
Nature:
The growing complexity of rules that affect everything from taxes and social security to zoning, make life increasingly difficult for the average person. They also make it increasingly difficult to detect and enforce infringements of such laws.
Claim:
Existing law enforcement and correctional constructs have become, at every level, labyrinths of complexity, yet these are exactly the points at which community groups make contact. Since responsibility is so thinly diffused throughout the labyrinth, no structure can be held sufficiently accountable. Therefore there is no concentration of power which can be effectively addressed.
