In my experience, this only leads to madness.

What is a 'player'?  What is a 'vote'?  What
is 'English'?  Can we define these things in
some manner that isn't, eventually, circular?

But, hey, give it a shot if you want.  I won't
prima facie vote against anything that defines=20
any of those terms.

(Reference to 'real' law:  At least one person
has challenged Canadian tax law on the basis
that it never defines what a 'dollar' is, nor
is that defined anywhere else in the corpus
of law.  He lost.)
