Modernity and the law

“Yeah, it’s as though the law nominally exists for us, but is held from us at the same time.”

There is something about this. It is my evoke-and-elide thesis again. Things exist yet do not, and this appears to be a characteristic of modern states. I do not understand it yet but much of what I have been reading alludes to it.


One thought on “Modernity and the law

  1. Well, the law exists to protect property and the state, but is considered universal and just. Somehow, all of this yes-and-no fits together.
