One of my subjects this year is Logic. Kinda odd but it's been my favorite so far. I'm reading Richard Mayberry's "Whatever Happened to Justice?". This really challenges my mind in terms of what I've always thought. I read "Whatever Happened to Penny Candy?" last year for economics and loved it but I think I like this one even better. I've learned so much from it.
According to him the basis of all law is set on two principles known as "The Natural Law". He states that you can ask just about any adult in America what Natural Law is and they won't know much if anything about it. So far only one person I've asked knew anything about it.
Here they are,
1) All men are created equal and
2) Do not encroach on another man's rights.
Those are the two laws that apply to every religion on earth. Mayburry states that America was the only country built on those two laws in the history of mankind except maybe Switzerland. Once America was not just a place it was an idea. Americans were honest and hard working. They obeyed those two laws. They were moral. Today we are taught that morals are more of an opinion. Today's kids are not growing up immoral their growing up amoral. And statistics show that whenever the Natural Law is followed society flourishes but when people do not have their God-given rights civilization moves backward.
Natural Law was followed in America up until the 1970's. Before that time parents would say that they thought their children would have a better life than they had but during the 70's polls began to show the opposite. America does not have the good standing that it used to. Are we as honest? Are we as free? What is America heading for? At the rate we're going will it contiue to be the "City on a Hill"? Think about it. Are we following the Natural Law? Does our government follow the natural law?
