Говорите на языке «нового нарратива о праве», или о том, как политкорректность «юридически» узаконивает себя

Мелкевик Б.
Translator: М. В. Антонов, Е. А. Патрикеева

The author examines the problems connected with a too broad use of the term “law” in the contemporary language. Such discourse about law which has no clear limits is defined as Novdroit. This narrative destroys the language used by the lawyers and introduces a new ideology instead. Under the guise of political correctness this ideology perverts the original sense of the old words. Studying the polysemanticism of the term “law” in the contemporary discussions, the author draws that the ambivalence of “law” can easily be used in the political purposes to legitimate the existing authorities and their rules.
