  • It's unclear what a good answer to this question should contain, and FYI check this meta thread regarding ongoing DAO questions. – Waqar Lim Jun 18 '16 at 14:41
  • Don't know what it says about a broader understanding of law and the acceptance of law as an academic discipline, that you flag this question as 'primarily opinion based'. What the answer should contain? a sound derivation of a conclusion based on the axioms of a 2000 years old discipline called the Jurisprudence a.k.a.: the science, study, and theory of law. – Roland Kofler Jun 18 '16 at 20:18
