Even when laws have been written down, they ought not always to remain unaltered.
Or alternately, I would suggest, 'they ought not always remain.' Aristotle is right. Liberals love to add new laws and mandates but are phobic about revisiting stuff that doesn't work. That's not progressive like they claim to be, it's just blind.
Exhibit A: The Obamacare train wreck has started. The unintended consequences have started to spill out into the press conferences.
Exhibit B: It also seems like any new law has a natural tendency to exponentially grow into more rules as the law reaches the application stage.
Go figure - a poorly conceived, poorly drafted law is turning into a train wreck before our eyes. Who saw that coming? Oh yeah, more than half the country.
