MarcStevens | John seems to believe the law may be applied without any regard to evidence. He believes written instruments called constitutions and laws apply because judges say so; actual proof is not necessary. He even admits several times the applicability of law, jurisdiction, is only an issue of law, not evidence. He seems to accept that laws are magical, that there doesn’t have to be evidence proving the laws apply. John insists there doesn’t have to be any proof the laws actually apply. The law applies because men and women say so. We’ve heard this claim before.
