The reflexive nature of the argument that the criminality of an act can reside in the definition of it—an argument that this Article terms “reflexive violence”—creates a self-reinforcing regime. This Article demonstrates that the creation of reflexive violence as a justification, and the use of it as a logical device in theories of criminality, is both typical of cyberlaw and dangerous for the future of the First Amendment.
