Warded to Hermione
While we wait for a full Wizengamot, Potter was talking about revoking laws.
I was thinking about it and we have laws in the books that go back to the first millennium after Christ. As you can imagine trying to revoke everything that could be a problem, especially when we don't have a full collection of laws would be close to impossible and incredibly time consuming.
My idea was to pass a new law that says that: Any and all laws, regulations, edicts, and ministerial orders passed before March 17, 2038 are hereby abolished. One line, short and simple, that can be understood by everyone. This would give us a blank slate and we can start passing the laws we want in ways we want.
For example instead of saying that you can't use the Killing Curse, we say you can't kill. I never understood why if you kill with the killing curse, you got to Azkaban for life, but if you magically impale someone with a metal bar, you do a few years and go home. How is it different? You still kill someone and if there's a justification, shouldn't that apply to both situations?
You can give a love potion and it's a TOY, but if you cast the Imperius on someone and tell him not to kill himself you go to jail forever. Maybe we should concentrate on intent and damage more than the spell used.
What do you think?
