Building Codes are a big part of where cities and municipalities can generate revenue: Inspections and By-Laws – from business licensing or Public/Private Partnerships.
Government is where Business is supposed to be delivering safe products so that people do not have to be engineering, bio-chemists or have a university degree to even understand the paper work.
There is the legal language and contract law, the spirit embedded in the language and letters of law. To be carried out in good faith by those who are licensed and entrusted to practice with ethics.
“No building code” is as bad as the best building code when it is not enforced.
The real measure of a society is not that rights are granted, but only when demanded, but actually extended and offered as a matter of course, which means behaving in accordance with the law.
Not an “the only crime is getting caught” or “word games” and “weasel defenses”.
It is the difference between accidentally hitting a person when you are driving and staying and attempting aid and rescue than hitting them accidentally and driving away and not admitting it until caught, often long after the fact.
Well, I guess that actually connects back to the previous post about knocking down neighbourhoods one housing structure at a time. Single Family Dwellings and Multi-Family Units skirting the by-law or operating within the law.
Corruption is as Corruption Does and it is very much about how a society protects the vulnerable and regulates the Predator Professions, advertising especially.
Advertising Law is actually more important for government to enforce than copyright.
it should not be cheaper to pay class action lawsuits than doing proper R&D.
