Replacing USA's legal system
    #4313097 - 06/19/05 05:48 AM (11 years, 9 months ago)

If one could choose any legal system from any country in the world to replace that of USA... What should one choose, and why?

I suspect Holland [my vote, and I've lived there for nearly half a decade] will be a very popular choice, with Canada not far behind.

you can't just apply another country's legal system to america's.
each country has developped its own legal system over time, therefore each legal system is adapted to its country.
if americans want a new legal system, they're going to need to create one for themselves, not just copy whatever other legal system that seems to work.

im going to take the opposing view (republican) and say china.

its just too much hard work on the part of the bush administration and its supporting big media to brain wash us. china's totalitarianism is the kind of strict mind controlling order we need!

China isn't Totalitarianism. They lack the means and the urge to control every part of their citizen's lives.

I don't think you can just take an entire country's legal system and plop it on the U.S. There's distinctions between that country's social attitude towards drugs (which creates its legal attitude in most cases), its method of dealing with health care and welfare either in a socialist sense or a libertarian sense, and most other factors. While I'd say Holland has some of the best laws on certain issues, on other issues I wouldn't want Holland's legal system here.

If there really was a legal system that I'd support fully replacing the U.S.'s, I would've moved there already.

The question of whether there are laws you like has absolutely nothing to do with the legal "system". The system is good. Some of the laws are not to my liking and I would certainly change some of the rules of evidence. For instance, prior bad acts should be admissible to establish a pattern of behaviour. That's not prejudice, it's intelligence. In our legal system far more criminals get off than innocents go to jail. Far, far more. I'd like to cut both down to zero, but I think this is probably about as good as can be done given human fallibility.
