Hi Cameron,

A suggestion would be be to add the point of process of  making of the Laws
of a country(Editing the book of rules of Law governing the country)
collaborative.By that way the Laws would be consistently and approriate to
the changing times.For example in India,some laws made before independence
by the British are still prevalent today and I presume the same has
happened with any other country which was under foreign rule for a long
time.So a collaborative law making process would be more better than a
limited set of contributors chosen by the government  themselves.
