I think there is a danger in toolbox thinking BECOMING law thinking without the due diligence required to justify the law outside its original context.
I.E. an obsolete mode of lawful thought is superceded using a tool, and that tool becomes the new soon-to-be-obsolete mode of lawful thought, until a new tool solves the contradiction… and becomes its own new lawful mode. Sort of a Hegelian dialectical process.
I.E. Progresses are stupid, but they work anyway.
