The ethics of loopholes

The essence of a loophole allows one to escape the overall moral purpose of a piece of legislation or moral code of conduct. An ethical loophole could therefore only exist if the  legislation or moral code ran against an overall greater imperative. Such as an inalienable right to life, liberty or the pursuit of happiness.

This was likely Thomas Jefferson’s moral imperative to the Declaration of Independence and the need to escape Britain’s rule.
