Abstract: Law is a positivist construction of complex rational ends all pointing toward one general rational principle: order. Since law is posited, there are no correct answers that can cross borders and resolve disputes by applying a universal rule – the laws that are created properly and provide most effectively for order in a particular society will vary along with the societies they govern.
