Denialists’ Deck of Cards: Two Kings, the Proposal “Can’t Be Enforced,” or “Lawsuits (It Can Be Enforced)”

i-6a5144c2ca1e5e0009a00cc90e94d0ff-kh.jpg “Can’t be enforced” is a different argument than “it won’t work” (the Jack of Diamonds). Here, the denialist is usually threatening to operate an offending practice overseas, or oddly enough, arguing that because a proposal doesn’t give someone a right to sue, it isn’t worth passing.

Of course, if the proposal gives one a right to sue, the denialist uses the opposite argument: the proposal is enforceable, and the denialist will complain of frivolous lawsuits.
