All advanced human actions, the weather, the natural world all operate on the law. Understanding the rules of that law enables all the sciences, arts, music, and advanced human action the world has witnessed as humans have gained and lost civilization throughout history. The following is a primer on the rule of law, a concept oft mentioned in these articles, to advance our collective understanding and provide impetus towards correcting the government.
Consider electricity; it exists in nature in uncontrolled ways and means. Static electricity, lightning, other discharges exist when electrons get free and need to be grounded. It took millennia for man to understand and harness electricity in the crudest of manners and methods. It took another millennium for man to understand the laws of electricity, create, harness, and purposefully use electricity to improve the human condition. Ancient examples of electricity exit in Egyptian tombs and other sites of antiquity that amaze and mystify us in the current history of man, for we do not understand the why behind the ancient uses and make guesses as to why electricity was used.
The critical part in our discussion of electricity is discovering and then living obediently to the rules and laws governing electricity. Without exception, if you abuse the power of electricity, harm occurs, and death is ever-present. I have witnessed surges of electricity start fires, throw people across rooms, and stop hearts as effortlessly as I type. Speak with an electrician or engineer, and you will hear tales of inexperienced, uneducated, or fool-hardy people breaking the laws of electricity and the amazing results that transpired. Speak to these same people, and you can see the advantages and blessings of obedience to the laws of electricity and the power of electricity to improve lives, heal the sick, and raise the dead; all, because the rule of law is adhered to by practitioners and electricity, is safely harnessed and used according to the understood laws.
Tesla understood electricity’s laws and rules better than any other person in history and died too soon for his knowledge of those rules to be both accepted and applied to the human condition. Edison, Westinghouse, and Tesla had a unique and troubled history and relationships. Due to the desire to make money on delivering electricity, Tesla’s Tower for providing electricity through the air without a delivery network of wires, substations, and generators, was forced to be suspended, and Edison and Westinghouse beat Tesla into obscurity almost. Edison, Westinghouse, and Tesla’s relationship is not the topic; although highly interesting and an excellent example of capitalism working to destroy people, the rule of law and obedience to the understood rules and laws is the topic.
Consider the internal combustion engine. I have heard it postulated on more than one occasion that after gravity, the internal combustion engine is continuously being researched and debated by engineers, physicists, and other scientific people in an attempt to improve human understanding. Electricity remains on this list as we are learning more laws and rules that expand knowledge, which then develops human applications. Hence, when we speak of the rule of law, we speak of current law, future discoveries, and historical application. The historical applications of laws and rules often lead to insights into everyday situations and predict where the future may lie on a particular topic.
Some may complain; I am speaking only about natural laws, and man’s laws, as applied through government, are different from natural law. To those who suggest this, I say, unequivocally, “Hogwash!” How did man form the government; they watched the natural order and created a mimicry of the natural order into society, and then began working to improve that social order to achieve what nature, or the natural world, does automatically.
Consider the starlings, little birds, that fly in concert so intricately and beautifully, acting in a harmony of motion that appears to defy the social order and government of bird flight. Yet, the starlings’ rules and laws allow for their society to fly and mystify humans. Deer, Elk, Moose, Mice, and so many other animal societies have been mimicked by humans into a form of government and social order, bringing with it rules and laws that apply, strictly, to that society.
America has a lot of rules and laws. In an attempt to capture the width and breadth of laws and rules in America, the following statement is made, “Congress has enacted approximately 200–600 statutes during each of its 115 biennial terms so that more than 30,000 statutes have been enacted since 1789.” A more straightforward explanation is made on a different source, “Nobody Knows!” The first and most fundamental law is the US Constitution and US Bill of Rights. Under the rule of law, the judicial and legislative branches of government are expected to follow and closely adhere to these fundamental documents when creating laws and rules. However, the legislative branch has abdicated its role to the judicial branch. The judicial branch has become infested with activists and militant and mutton-headed pillocks from both current political parties’ extremes until the law has become defiled, and American Society suffers.
The same pattern has been observed in every democratic society across the globe, with the United Kingdom, France, Greece, and Germany, leading to diminution of the understanding and governance of law. Hence, according to just laws and rules, the social orders that used to mimic natural orders have become lost in the morass of bias and opinions forming a legal quagmire where even obeying the law has become too difficult no one knows the laws sufficiently. Even though the legal premise remains, “Ignorance of the law is no excuse.”
America, consider the number of “Executive Orders” written by the current and fraudulent president? The UK, consider how long it took to leave the EU and the bureaucrats who continue to thwart the people’s will? Israel, how many elections will it take for you to have a stable government again? German, you get the same question as Israel, and we all know how France and Greece could not form a cohesive government even though their lives depend upon a functioning government.
Citizens of Democratic governments, and America, a Republic, must understand the basic role and functioning of government to not cradle-to-grave care for a citizen, but to protect the national boarders and do as little harm as possible. That is the government’s entire function; look at any social order in the animal kingdom, and this truth becomes evident very quickly. Yet, humans continue to try and shape government into an instrument to beat and betray their fellow men in the name of plastic terms like “fair,” “equity,” and “New,” among many others.
What does a citizen of these governments do?
I have some suggestions, but the leading and most crucial request is to understand and then act. We must fundamentally shift our understanding of, and then actions of, the governments that have grown beyond control.
- Observe natural order and consider your current government. If they do not match, you have a problem. Acknowledge that problem exists!
- Understand the role of the “Rule of Law.” As the natural order goes, so should human government.
- Without a doubt, when natural laws are broken, death follows. Governments are dying because they have disregarded this simple principle. Awake and arise before the globe enters another World War; because we all know how those turn out!
- Once you know, ACT! Vote! Raise your voice! Disclaim that in no uncertain terms, you are refusing and refuting the government’s power to rule you!
- As you learn, teach, so you may learn more succinctly, thus empowering your ability to train more powerfully. Your neighbors need this same information so you can act in concert. Consider the starling; how fast will a starling die if they do not fly in formation properly; not bloody long.
Remember, this is but a starting point in changing government, but we must start! Embrace a “Liberty FIRST Culture,” and let us citizens act, for we own the government, not the other way round! Never stop trying, learning, and reaching out. When the government breaks the natural order, death becomes a real possibility, either through war, rebellion, or simply anarchy as government dies.
