Which, again, you are necessarily asserting in your "codefications of rights and limitations on sovereignty are BAD" stuff is that we were a more civilized species the day before Magna Carta (and one could pull other codes far earlier in fact) as any day hence. Which, well... durp. That is all I got. Well, and hurp.
