In judging the adaptations to changing circumstances comparisons of the new with the former position are irrelevantRules of just conduct protect only material domains and not market values; The correspondence of expectations is brought about by a disappointment of some expectations; Abstract rules of conduct can determine only chances and not particular results; Specific commands ('interference') in a catallaxy create disorder and can never be just; The aim of law should be to improve equally the chances of all.
