“All cost and no benefit. All image and no law. And that is the point. The rub. The
law depends upon, is supported by, exists through an array of background
techniques, apparatuses of appearance, a theatrical machinery of solemnization
and approbation that is largely preconscious, an affection image. These spectacles
relay the site and space of legality”.
Peter Goodrich “Specters of Law: Why the History of the
Legal Spectacle Has Not Been Written” 2011
