Definition of Crime
-------------------
Except as enumerated in this document, all crimes involve a victim
other than the perpetrator.  A fully consenting adult can not be
construed to be a victim.  Furthermore, to be construed as a victim,
an individual must have suffered the involuntary abridgement of one or
more of the rights or privileges enumerated specifically or generally
in this document.  Any such abridgement is a crime, and if proved in
court, the perpetrator must be penalized with punitive labor,
incarceration, or both, as specified in law.
