Cultivating conversation lies at the centre of civilized people. Dialogue is simple but never the less defines complex purposes of conversation. Through the art of conversation we test prejudices, search for meaning to define critical issues. Formal expression is structured language for the sake of the community to define our ideas. The concept of expression through these mechanics collects and conveys a basis to name our feelings and thoughts, and place ourselves in the world.

Whether our ideas are wise, efficient, or prudent are never sufficient reason for thinking they become the law, nor the fact that some ideas are unjust, unwise, inefficient or imprudent is never sufficient reason for doubting them.

Whether a society has a legal system depends on the presence of certain structures of governance, not on the extent to which it satisfies ideals of justice, democracy, or the rule of law.
