In such case, if we continue to accept that ignorance of the law is no defence against it, then we are presuming that one cannot defend himself/ herself from himself/herself. In essence, this sounds like an argument in support of suicide.
So my question is how come aren't all justice systems (all those that promote the concept that ignorance of the law isn't a valid defence against the law) busy self-destroying? Isn't it because the proponents, supporters and enablers of such justice systems are essentially wicked hypocrites? Or does it mean that the law does not truly apply to itself, but just to others? Others who believe that ignorance of the law is no defence against the law have no means to defend themselves against themselves, with the law being no other? In this case, only the law can save others from self destruction? So, others worship the law? Is this what is going on?
