In this short response, I address some of the general themes that have been raised by the commentators. I discuss these under three main heads. These are, first, the relationship between descriptive and normative accounts of the criminal law; second, the meaning of civil order and its place in my argument, and; third, an explanation for my focus on certain types of offenses in the analysis of the special part of the criminal law.
