In my view, all laws must pass the "Robinson criterion" and the "drop dead criterion".
Robinson criterion: "If this law were passed on Robinson Crusoe's island, it must not interfere with the way Robinson would have acted in absence of the law."
drop dead criterion: "If I were to drop dead tomorrow, and this doesn't make you worse off, then I am not indebted to you".
I had trouble parsing these.
If somebody dies, making me better off, does that imply they were indebted to me? Does that imply you oppose the concept of inheritance?
For the first one, are you suggesting that laws should be based on a classic novel
