DISCUSSION: North America specifically bans blackmail, even though it’s a combination of two things that are normally legal.
Rome didn’t officially ban blackmail, but their laws on harmful disclosures had the indirect effect of banning actions we would consider blackmail.
Further, Rome didn’t allow harmful disclosures even if there was no blackmail. There were no rights to free speech. Disclosures were allowed only if they had a public purpose.
- Both systems need to have similar effects. It seems like one country has no effect on carpenters.
- This answer talks about making the same thing illegal in different places. But Roman law actually made different things illegal.
- The effects of North American and Roman laws were fairly similar. In this answer, they’re different.
- CORRECT. Here, the law has the same effects. Felons can’t own guns. In fact, in one country, guns are only allowed for an official purpose.
- This is a totally different situation. Here something dangerous is allowed in one country, but you’re on the hook if you misuse it.
