I interpreted your remark as implying that Law was opposed to human nature
*in toto*, though that might not have been the intent. (As an aside, your
comments are frequently so terse that the reader is left guessing at what
you're trying to say.)

True enough, though probably the same can be said for every facet of law.
Was your point that the term "human nature" is vacuous?
