True, but that’s a political issue, not a legal one. And if you followed back to Robb Allen’s post, you’ll note that the “just” result made carrying on your property openly malum prohibitum. All due to an illegal search that was upheld in the name of justice.
The critical difference is that “legal” is pretty well defined, and a determination can be made by reference to specific criteria, available to everyone. “Just” is a matter of opinion, and opinions on what is or isn’t “justice” vary widely, depending upon age, experience, culture, education and a host of other variables.
Give me our flawed legal system any day. I’m getting too old to ensure my own brand of justice!
Vance and Zelazny are my mythwriters. I read “Have Spacesuit Will Travel” and “Podkayne of Mars”, for Battle of the Books on Chicago’s WTW, when I was twelve or so. It seems so quaint after two generations.
