alabama robot lords. murphy's laud. lauding the law robots, the law acrobats.

The new law robots so nobody has to sully their hands. The law is too complex now for mere
humans to practice. they can't remember it all.

The robots quickly found that the law was grown so complex, it was endlessly self-nullifying.
It had ramified and overgrown so much that human beings were now enacting laws which
negated other laws already on the books. Not only that, but in redressing these negations,
humans passed new laws that were identical to laws already there. In some places in the code,
this ran to four or five iterations.

The robots knew one thing, and that was that humans loved to tell other humans what to do.
The robots also knew that now that they controlled the law, they really ran the show. They
were the new alabama law lords.
