In the Reckoners' universe, the government collapses because the epics are too powerful to be controlled, except by other, more powerful, epics. However, because all epics are evil, the epics all work against the government in one form or another.
In the parallel universe, some epics are good, and some are bad. This means that there should be some who work for the government, preventing its collapse. However, in none of the parallel universe scenes do we see any evidence of any law-enforcement. From this I conclude that there is no law in this universe either.
Why is this?
