So many rule writers today
Prolific rules3 and more everyday but nobody, except the writer and writer’s employer, might read the written words?
A rule is written absent people’s ideas how a problems solution might already exist—for example, legislatures and judicial common law new law sources written. Therefore (the solution action plan) find somebody somewhere to join the words necessary making new rulemaking script.
I recalled, from reading, just how rules and regulations formation has evolved within the United State; since Congress and states had adopted a change from rules of common law courts enacted or decided to also include legislature(s) enacted statutes.1
Comes the written rule reading overload
Presently with court rules and legislator rule written approved and becoming something for someone somewhere to obey, follow, or prohibit; it follows, just a few examples of rules so complex that the average reader of words is confounded:
- IRS Tax Code;
- Affordable Care Act;
- Cybersecity acts2; and
- Patriot Act; i.e. a few.
New written rulemaking why?
A rule is written when people don’t have any idea what to do for a problems solution. Therefore find somebody somewhere to join the words necessary making the rulemaking script.
Does a pubic benefit exist?
New rule. No real public benefit for tomorrow. Also, just thinking a-bit, the written rules are so complex, so many words, so many meaning, and lacking insufficient editors to alter existing adopted rules; as a result, rules written, rules adopted, rules enforcement, and rules changed to align with tomorrows society norms and standards and civilized society stand little- to no-chance of every being reconsidered. Too bad. Stare decisis1 used by courts past might have been the real solution to the overwhelming words written as rules today for tomorrow enforcement.
The rule making mistake, just might have been, when the Congress decided to expand who can create and enact rules including Congress.
