  6. Law, Time and Change Law, within a society, constantly evolves and changes over time… … however, this change cannot occur too rapidly or sharply “Existing rules and principles can give us our present location, our bearings, our latitude and longitude. The inn that shelters for the night is not the journey’s end. The law, like the traveler, must be ready for the morrow. It must have a principle of growth.” Pg 2 Re: Drummond Wren

  13. Law: Restrictor or Enabler? • Law in S.A. is imposed on blacks by whites, used as a tool • Legitimacy? Blacks revolted several times… • Fight by blacks from the bottom and by whites from the top with judges in between • No real democracy, representatives not elected by majority • Dugard: Natural law: principles that transcend any legal system. But not very present in S.A. • Principles of “community morality” or “institutional history” are biased • Any attempt to have law emanating from majority would fail because of appeals / legislature • Revert to violence: Law unable to organize society effectively by itself?
