According to you, "Orthodoxy is a frozen system" while "Conservatism is a living legal system". I disagree. I assume that from your realistic liberal viewpoint, you'll agree with me that no legal system is perfect in practice. Secondly, if by "living" legal system, we mean a system of laws by which people actually live, you'll have to agree too that "orthodoxy" is well alive. Thirdly, being frozen or not, like being dynamic or not, is not a value per se. Consider this: 1) Kasherut laws haven't changed much for the past 1000 years; 2) 65 years ago, a French woman was beheaded in France because she'd had an abortion while nowadays abortion is essentially free in France thanks to the French healthcare system. Now from 1) and 2) nothing can be inferred unless you discuss content within halakhah and French Law. What you actually meant is the *content* of the law, but you did not discussed it.
