To End All Crime

On December 10, 2013, the Romanian parliament considered "super-immunity" to parliamentarians, the president, and to more than 100 mayors, their convictions for corruption notwithstanding. The parliament relieved them of their crimes by abolishing the the law that declared them corrupt. Parliament is also considering decriminalizing conflict of interest laws. The goodies continue, Also on the agenda is amnesty and pardon for politicians already in prison.

Here's the lesson for the world at large. To abolish all crime, simply declare void all laws that define crimes. No matter what one does, no crime can be committed.

Thank you, Romanian parliament.
