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.
A crime, as described in law, involves exactly one perpetrator over
exactly one uninterrupted interval. Biological crimes involve exactly
one victim, who is an individual person.
Verbalizations, gesticulations, and other such actions of a purely
communicative nature, cannot by themselves be construed to comprise a
crime, provided they do not violate § Criminal Incitement Prohibition,
§ False Incitement Prohibition, § Libel, § Right to Secrecy,
§ State Secrets, or § Radio Broadcast.
