Default Re: Welcome to the Jungle

If Bob could find an example of a centralized legal system backed by decentralized power, or perhaps just a feeling of legitimacy, it would help his argument.

I disagree with Megan that Bush would be the first target of a world court. Look to the UN Human Rights Commission: it's all Israel's fault. This points to the reason we don't have a world court: legal systems grow along with their host societies. The various governments of the world do not yet form a society that agrees on much of anything. Wolves have their ways of settling disputes, rabbits theirs. A transpecific Critter Court would be unworkable in the present state of nature.
