This law states that ''Imposition of Order'' = ''Escalation of Chaos''. It elaborates on this point by saying that the more order imposed the longer it takes for the chaos to arise and the greater the chaos that arises.

This can be read as an argument against [[zero tolerance]] and hard security, or just a statement about the world. It can also be seen as a parallel to the second law of thermodynamics which states that [[entropy]] (the number of states a given system can occupy) never decreases over time. It is also reminiscent of Newton's Third Law, where every action has an equal and opposite reaction.
