“Comme les lois inutiles affaiblissent les lois nécessaires, celles qu’on peut éluder affaiblissent la législation. Une loi doit avoir son effet, et il ne faut pas permettre d’y déroger par une convention particulière.“
Montesquieu, Charles de. De L’Espirit des Lois. Geneva: Barillot et Fils, 1748. Book XXIX, Chapter 16
