[Quote No.43759] Need Area: Friends > General
"The existence and force of natural law (derived from universal human nature and 'natural rights') has been continually disputed by those [philosophers, politicians, etc] who claim that the state should exercise limitless power over individuals. Early in the seventeenth century Thomas Hobbes argued that the nature of man was not such that one could deduce natural law from it, or rather he argued that the natural law so deduced placed no important limits on the power of the ruler to do as he pleased, to remake society as he wished, that social order was purely a creation of state power. Hobbes claimed that in a state of nature, it is a war of all against all, and life is 'poor, solitary, nasty, brutish, and short'. This of course is a direct contradiction of the usual natural law argument that man is a social animal, adapted by nature (enlightened self-interest) to live mostly peaceably with his fellow men, and do business with them quietly. Therefore, Hobbes argued, the state is entitled to unlimited power, and right is whatever the state, through its laws, says is right, and wrong whatever the state says is wrong. An 'unjust law' is a contradiction in terms because the will of the state is itself the standard of justice, thus the ruler can do no wrong. The ruler is answerable to God, but everyone else is answerable only to the ruler. Hobbes saw rights as a creation of state power...[rather than an unalienable individual human natural birthright, as believed by John Locke and the 'Founding Fathers' of the United States of America and therefore stated in their Declaration of Independence, The Bill of Rights and the US Constitution. For example consider the initial words of The Declaration of Independence: 'When, in the course of human events, it becomes necessary for one people to dissolve the political bands which have connected them with another, and to assume among the powers of the earth, the separate and equal station to which the laws of nature and of nature's God entitle them, a decent respect to the opinions of mankind requires that they should declare the causes which impel them to the separation. We hold these truths to be self-evident, that all men are created equal, that they are endowed by their Creator with certain unalienable rights, that among these are life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness. That to secure these rights, governments are instituted among men, deriving their just powers from the consent of the governed. That whenever any form of government becomes destructive to these ends, it is the right of the people to alter or to abolish it, and to institute new government, laying its foundation on such principles and organizing its powers in such form, as to them shall seem most likely to effect their safety and happiness. Prudence, indeed, will dictate that governments long established should not be changed for light and transient causes; and accordingly all experience hath shown that mankind are more disposed to suffer, while evils are sufferable, than to right themselves by abolishing the forms to which they are accustomed. But when a long train of abuses and usurpations, pursuing invariably the same object evinces a design to reduce them under absolute despotism, it is their right, it is their duty, to throw off such government, and to provide new guards for their future security....'] ...Hobbes also argued that even if men know what is just, they will not always do what is just, and that this will often lead to war. This is of course true, but that argument does not lead to the conclusion that men should submit to absolute power. Quite the contrary. As [philosopher, John] Locke argued, and as the twentieth century dramatically showed, inequality of power does not lead to less use of unjust force, but to greater use of unjust force. Human wickedness is an argument for liberty, not an argument for absolute forms of government. This argument is no longer used by the modern successors of Hobbes. To conclude for absolutism, it is necessary to argue, as Hobbes argued, that men 'cannot' know what is just (natural ethics - i.e. Golden Rule) use of force, and must be provided with an arbitrary definition of justice by some authority possessing a single will, as Hobbes argued. To argue for absolutism from human evil, as both Hobbes and De Maistre also argued, is foolish, and these days nobody makes that argument, regardless of their political persuasion. If the war of all against all occurs because men cannot know what use of force is just, then indeed law is a creation of the state, as Hobbes argued, and the state is above the law, as Hobbes argued, and social cohesion derives from the will of the ruler, as Hobbes implied. But if violent conflict occurs because of simple uncomplicated evil acts by evil men, then his arguments are invalid, and the arguments of Bastiat and Locke apply ó law is collective self defense, thus the state must govern under law, it is not the source of law. The state cannot justly use force in ways that would be illegitimate for an individual in a state of nature. Social cohesion derives from arrangements to ensure that people apply retributive force justly and that the use of such force can be seen to be just, what nineteenth century people called 'due process and the rule of law'. Social cohesion does not derive from a single central will, contrary to Hobbes arguments and assumptions.... Plainly, some kinds of society are more natural than others. When the state attempts to impose an unnatural form of society (i.e. political socio-economic philosophy), it requires a large amount of coercive violence to impose this form, and the state undermines its own cohesion in the process. [In order to avoid this lack of social legitimacy democracy has found many advocates. Democracy - rule by the majority and their representatives - is an attempt to reduce a physical contest to a political contest so the force of human violence is replaced by the force of human votes and justified by Bentham's philosophy of Utilitarianism of 'the greatest good for the greatest number'. This is better than physical violence but, unless restrained by the preservation of unalienable individual human natural rights that are beyond the ability of the majority to alter for their own selfish benefits, is no better than violent mob rule where the minority are exploited legally by the majority using the state's monopoly powers of legal force and coercion. Human nature, natural rights and natural law exist regardless of any totalitarian or democratic governance to the contrary.]" - James A. Donald

[Quote No.43779] Need Area: Friends > General
"According to the [political] ťlites... their doctrine of [fiscal and monetary] stimulus is righteous because immorality is something that only afflicts agents other than the stateís. Outsiders (i.e., private individuals and businesses) are potentially evil, but insiders (namely politicians and bureaucrats) apparently wear halos. As a result, if you and I do it, itís theft (which is clearly bad); but if the stateís agents do it, itís taxation and fiscal policy (which, the establishment stridently insists, is even more obviously good). Further, if you and I undertake it, itís counterfeiting and fraud (bad); but if central bankers do it, itís monetary policy (good). If you and I do it, itís mass murder (and an unspeakable evil); but if soldiers, sailors and airmen wearing the stateís costumes do it, itís the collateral damage of foreign policy (which is necessary to promote and protect 'national security'). In short, if you and I harm others, thatís obviously bad; but if the agents of state command and control, thatís unarguably good Ė and anybody who says otherwise is clearly stupid or dangerous or both. Our overlordsí conceit is ancient. Throughout recorded history, the most significant 'somebody' threatening liberty and stealing property has not been the common thief: it has been the Leviathan state. Secular rulers, as St Augustine famously described them in 'The City of God', are 'gangs of criminals on a grand scale.' Au-gustine noted the state originated not through some fictitious 'social contract' or voluntary arrangement but rather through force, robbery and murder: 'A gang is a group of men under the command of a leader, bound by a compact of association, in which the plunder is divided according to an agreed convention. If this villainy wins so many recruits from the ranks of the demoralised that it acquires territory, establishes a base, captures cities and subdues peoples, it then openly arrogates to itself the title of kingdom, which is conferred on it in the eyes of the world, not by the renunciation of aggression, but by the attainment of impunity. For it was a witty and truthful rejoinder which was given by a captured pirate to Alexander the Great. The king asked the fellow, 'What is your idea, in infesting the sea?' And the pirate answered, with uninhibited insolence, 'the same as yours, in infesting the earth! But because I do it with a tiny craft, Iím called a pirate: because you have a mighty navy, youíre called an emperor.' " - Chris Leithner

The balance of power is the scale of peace. The same balance would be preserved were all the world destitute of arms, for all would be alike; but since some will not, others dare not lay them aside... Horrid mischief would ensue were (the good) deprived of the use of them ... the weak will become a prey to the strong.

"Justice, being violated, destroys; justice, being preserved, preserves: therefore, justice must not be violated, lest violated justice destroy us." - Manusmriti
written also as Manusmriti or Manusmruti, and also known as Mānava-Dharmaśāstra, is the most important and earliest metrical work of the Dharmaśāstra textual tradition of Hinduism. Generally known in English as 'the Laws of Manu', or Dharmic discourse to vedic Rishis, on 'way of living' of various classes of society. The text presents itself as a discourse given by the sage Manu, to a group of seers, or rishis, who beseech him, after the great floods, in the vedic state of 'Brahmavarta' some 10,000 years ago, to tell them, how to face such calamities and lead an organised life with the 'laws of all the social classes'.

[Quote No.43910] Need Area: Friends > General
"[While physical equality is not possible for any length of time, equality of treatment is and it is the only moral behavior amongst people. The Jim Crow laws in the US were an example of discrimination and unequal treatment that Americans are now rightly ashamed of:] The Jim Crow laws were state and local laws in the United States enacted between 1876 and 1965. They mandated 'de jure' racial segregation in all public facilities in Southern states of the former Confederacy, with, starting in 1890, a 'separate but equal' status for African Americans. The separation in practice led to conditions that tended to be inferior to those provided for white Americans, systematizing a number of economic, educational and social disadvantages. 'De jure' segregation mainly applied to the Southern United States. Northern segregation was generally 'de facto', with patterns of segregation in housing enforced by covenants, bank lending practices, and job discrimination, including discriminatory union practices for decades. Some examples of Jim Crow laws are the segregation of public schools, public places, and public transportation, and the segregation of restrooms, restaurants, and drinking fountains for whites and blacks. The U.S. military was also segregated. These Jim Crow Laws followed the 1800Ė1866 Black Codes, which had previously restricted the civil rights and civil liberties of African Americans with no pretense of equality. State-sponsored school segregation was declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court of the United States in 1954 in Brown v. Board of Education. Generally, the remaining Jim Crow laws were overruled by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965." - Wikipedia.org

"[Freedom, individualism, authenticity and being yourself so long as you don't hurt another's physical person or property:] Freedom to differ is not limited to things that do not matter much. That would be a mere shadow of freedom. The test of [freedom's] substance is the right to differ as to things that touch the heart of the existing order." - Robert Jackson
