Separation of legality from the state is what enables our view to better explain without distortion the various forms of non-state prima facie legality whose emergence is too pervasive to leave outside the scope of a balanced general jurisprudence. This chapter returns to the prima facie legalities identified in Chapter 1, and shows fully how freedom from the ideas of legal official, legal system, and hierarchy (and so in general the idea of “chains of validity”) is crucial to responsive descriptive-explanation of legality broadly.
