The phrase, Natural Law Matters, title of this website, has a dual meaning. Natural law really does matter, which emphasises need to write about natural law matters. Please accept a very warm welcome to the first post on my blog site – Natural Law Matters. Few people know what natural law is, yet natural law does matter. Many have simple explanations for it, such as the ‘Golden Rule,’ but that is far too simplistic to be of real value. Most people agree that the word ‘law’ means a command, a rule, an executive order, or some directive statement. There seems no need exists to challenge that idea or stance. Because some people cause harm, or interfere in others lives, laws and enforcement are necessary, so it is believed. From whence did this idea spring? How do some people have the right to command or force others while preaching that force is criminal?
What is law exactly?
Three Versions of Law
Natural law, being of nature
Common law, based in (moral) tradition,
Positive law, (statute rule), as invented by Mankind.
