I like the meme of Trump holding up the severed head of Medusa … very emotionally satisfying.
And I love the message of personal responsibility manifest in the essay “Citizen of the Republic” by TL Davis.
But restoration of “Rule of Law” will not solve our societal problems. Our problems are rooted in the departure of the legal systems of our various legislative domains from the American and English Common-Law.
Statute and ordinance no longer embody ethics and morality, but stand as mere edict (will of man) to be served up by force.
Read the following … read it again … and again:
To recover our Rightful Liberty, we need to educate our friends and neighbors about the need to eradicate all statute and ordinance and return to common-law.
And perhaps we should go a little further in our personal responsibility than TL Davis recommends:
Individuals are justified in the initiation of violence to stop Common-Law crime or apprehend Common-Law criminals (a justification for vigilantism).
In “James’ Liberty File”: http://jim.com/ you will find an interesting essay titled “Natural Law and Natural Rights”. It contains some insight and phrasing that I’ve never seen elsewhere.
Natural law is that law which corresponds to a spontaneous order in the absence of a state …
… that law, which it is proper to uphold by unorganized individual violence, whether a state is present or absent, and for which, in the absence of orderly society, it is proper to punish violators by unorganized individual violence.
