Consisting of thousands of pages, the law begins on chapter 17 of the second book, then proceeds to chapter 6 of the first, and so on, in random, chaotic order. Yet, despite all of its complexity, everyone is expected to understand and adhere to it--good luck with that! Lawmakers, have created a system so complex that it begs the indulgence of professional lawyers. Below is our attempt to bring meaning to chaos.
