I was giving it a little thought so its not perfect but it shows where i have the idea.
In Poland few years ago parlament created a law to forbid tv stations to air commercials for longer period than 5mins every half hour
continuusly!(SP?). - we can imagine the intent -> to make less commercials an hour than it was before...
What happenned instead was longer commerial breaks becaus they found a hole in law in the "continnuus" so they broke the commercials in few blocks
adding thier own "tv station program ads"(these are not classified as commercials ...)
what i think is laking in law formation (legislation) is writen intent of law maker. Like a guide to what was the driving force to create the law.
Now let us take a leap and add a comment like (programers will understand) place for intent to be wrinten into the law and these should be guides to
use when judging someone...
When intent gets aged it should be fixed addding new intentions.
Sorry if i made it complex - the idead alone is simple.
It would allow us regular people to judge in our own heads what is the intent of law maker, it would make obsolete laws vanish. And yet the best it
would help courts to interpret the law since intent....
