But surely, eventually, someone will be wronged. Without recourse to civil litigation, the world (at least for that party) will surely be a worse place. Through such recourse, however, the world would be a better place (at least for that individual, but I would argue for us all).Even allowing for the hypothetical, "Without recourse to" i.e. the absence of, the addition of the same would only serve to bring the "world" back to a certain equilibrium. Granted, that is a highly theoretical/ideological position.
In the absence of punitive damages, I'm having a hard time coming up with a scenario that would allow for the world being a better place.
I'm open to examples.
