My hypothesis is that the law concerning socially and morally controversial cases is often a result of social compromise and it is a “power” of the law because of strong social legitimization of the law but, on the other hand, the law seems to be incoherent axiological system what causes some problems related to moral consistency of the legal system and its justification. The law liberalization in the field of morality, especially sexual morality, is still going on, although, as I maintain, the legal system may not be axiologically compatible. Let me add that the law is like a fight between perfectionist morality and absolute freedom.
