# Thou Shall not Mix and Match Opinions

Module by: John Bosco. E-mail the author

Summary: The opinion that a Lawmaker picks at one stage determines the opinion picked at the other stages of the process of making a law.

## Focus vs. Opinion


The focus of a Lawmaker is different than the opinion of a lawmaker. Both shift. However, the focus of a Lawmaker shifts within a flow of conduct from Source to Recipient in circumstances. The Opinion of a Lawmaker shifts about a flow of conduct from Source to Recipient in circumstances.


The focus of a Lawmaker shifts from the Source doing conduct to the conduct itself and to the Recipient receiving conduct.


The opinion of a Lawmaker shifts from like to Indifference to dislike.

## No mixing and matching of Opinions


The opinion a lawmaker picks at one stage of the process of making a law carries over to the other two stages. There is no mixing and matching. A lawmaker at the INTRUSION stage cannot like the Source doing conduct then at the FORMATION stage dislike the conduct itself. If this is done, two different laws are being made. To make one law, the same opinion applies over all three stages of the process of making a law.

## Glossary

PICK ONE REJECT TWO:
A lawmaker bounces amongst three stages during the lawmaking process. While at one of the three stages, a lawmaker picks one permutation of a law and rejects the other two. The permutation of a law picked at one stage applies across the board at the two other stages of the process of making a law.
