    Re: Grammatically incorrect

    This sentence implies that "all" represents all objects because the word "nothing" is used. In order for the sentence to make sense, the sentence needs to be "Law applies to all or no one at all" so as to add the detail that all refers to all humans.
    Does this make sense? Don't hesitate to ask any questions. Hope this helps.
