A Little Thought Experiment

for understanding the true nature of Law

For folks who identify as

"Conservative":

Imagine if you lived in a place

where the Bible is illegal.

Such countries do exist.

Saudi Arabia.

Sudan.

In North Korea, the penalty for possessing a Bible

is 10-20 years of hard labor in a gulag.  

Suppose somebody you know gets caught.

S/he gets tried, convicted, and sentenced.

Of the following two categories of responses, which one most closely matches what YOU feel is the correct response?

For folks who identify as

"Progressive":

Imagine if you lived in a place

where being LGBTQ is illegal.

Such countries do exist:

Saudi Arabia.

Iran.

In Uganda, the penalty for homosexuality

is 10-20 years in prison. 

Suppose somebody you know gets caught.

S/he gets tried, convicted, and sentenced.

Of the following two categories of responses, which one most closely matches what YOU feel is the correct response?

1.

I'm sorry you got caught.

You should know that you've done NOTHING wrong.

The state has no right to do this to you.

You have been persecuted unjustly.

You are innocent.

2.

Well that's what happens when you break the law.

You knew the consequences.

You have no one to blame but yourself. 

Crime never pays.

If you can't do the time, don't do the crime!

Which do you say?

?

If you picked #1, then you have tacitly acknowledged

that there is a "Higher Truth" than national legislation,

and a "Truer Law" than anything created by man.
You are in agreement with the Law of the Earth,

concerning the Origin of Rights.

The Origin of Rights
1. Rights are not man-made.
2. Rights come from existence.
3. People do not create rights,
and thus have no authority to destroy rights.
4. No being defines rights for another being.
5. The rights of one
exist with or without
the approval of any other(s).
6. Rights do not depend on legislation.
7. No legislation has any authority
to define rights or abrogate them.
8. Rights supersede
any and all man-made legislation.
9. Rights supersede the will of nations.
10. Rights supersede the will,
democratic or otherwise,
of any person or group.

No nation has the authority to ban the Bible,

or any book.

You have the right to read what you want,

to pray how you want,

and to worship whomever you want.

No nation has the authority to ban love, or the free expression thereof.

You have the right to love anyone you want,

and to relate with anyone you want, as long as they consent to the relationship.

These rights are all derived from One:

The right to Benign Sovereignty,

which is the right to do anything you want, as long as you're not hurting anyone else.

If there is no victim, there is no crime.

There are several ways to describe Benign Sovereignty:

1.  The right to complete and total sovereignty,
notwithstanding violating the sovereignty of another.
2.  The right to freedom
from the forceful imposition
of the personal will of any other.
3.  The right to live however one chooses,
provided one is not infringing upon the rights of another,
nor degrading the ecosystem upon which all Life depends.
4. A Being has the right
to do absolutely anything,
except violate a right of another Being,
or sabotage the balance of the ecosystem.
5. The Liberty of a Being
may never be infringed upon,
unless s/he is violating the rights of another,
or degrading the ecosystem upon which all Life depends.

6. A human being

has the right to do anything

that neither degrades the ecosystem

nor violates the sovereignty of another human being

nor inflicts needless or unnatural suffering upon another creature.

7. All actions
which neither degrade the ecosystem,
nor violate the rights of any other being,
are Lawful, and any force used to stop them is unlawful.

8. Universal Absolute Peaceful Sustainable Sovereignty

is the birthright of everyone

This birthright is contingent upon the obligation

to evaluate any dispute over the definitions of these terms

with an honest, sincere application of the Golden Rule of Empathy:

Treat Others How You Would Want To Be Treated.

There are many more rights that are derived from the right to Benign Sovereignty.

A list of Basic Human Rights can be found in Title 2 of the Law of the Earth.

The point of this exercise has been to show you that rights are intrinsic, that Law comes from existence, and NOT from nations, governments, or any man-made institution.

So if nations don't make the Law, and legislation isn't Law,

then what IS the Law?

Please proceed to read the one, true law of the planet:

Thank you for being sane!
