IIRC, this was not my claim, which would itself be a generalisation and, 
according to itself, wrong.

Generalisations may be true, even in the law: but a kind of generalised 
criticism is rarely valuable in assessing the merits of our current laws 
against potential alternatives, since virtually all law is open to this kind of 
generalised criticism without that necessarily grounding something else as a 
relative improvement.
