So, Blackstone isn’t relevant, eh? What about cyborgs? Also not relevant? Well, fine then.


I am back on the Internet, just in time to get schooled on the irrelevance of Blackstone!

Matthew Walker, a commenter, wrote:

Blackstone has about as much relevance to modern jurisprudence as the Talmud.
Maybe less.

Yeah, sure, but – if Blackstone isn’t relevant any more, that tells us that our basic assumptions have changed.

As recently as 40 years ago, people were talking about the USA Constitution with a straight face.

As recently as 40 years ago, people were claiming that Blackstone was fundamental to knowledge of the law.

If all that has changed in just 40 years, that sheds light on how much the law has broken down.

It just goes to prove that society has been so altered by cosmetic augmentations that it is no longer recognizable.

Kind of like the cyborg illustrated below:

All right, I have nothing of substance to say about the USA’s Constitution. You can just go read Exolymph. Her site has got more sexy cyborgs than my site has got.

  1. I thought Blackstone was the foundation of our laws; then a few years ago, I came across writings pointing out that Emer de Vattel’s “The Law of Nations” was the legal opinion of choice for the founders: Benjamin Franklin even purchased several copies.

    • That is actually surprisingly informative. I don’t have the background to understand it immediately, and I am not likely to set aside multiple hours to dig through it, but the text at the link looks like a serious find for any actual historians.
