Chaos and the Rule of Law

Hilary H. Young, Joy & Young, L.L.P., Austin, TX

Chaos.  Originally the Greek word meant a vast chasm, an empty void.  Around 1600, the word took on the meaning we think of today, of utter confusion or disorder.1  This moment in our country feels chaotic at the federal level.  There may be motion and actions, but they seem confused and as if they are going nowhere.  This apparent dysfunction has caused me and many others frustration and increasing anxiety about the effectiveness of our system of government.
