Where Mystery Begins

Cover of the pulp magazine Mystery (February 1934)A good parson once said that where mystery begins religion ends. Cannot I say, as truly at least, of human laws, that where mystery begins, justice ends?

-- Edmund Burke (1729-1797), Irish statesman and writer, A Vindication of Natural Society: A View of the Miseries and Evils Arising to Mankind (1756)
