God, Communism, and the Rule of LawA Tract Book EssayByAnthony J. Fejfar, B.A., J.D., Esq., Coif © Copyright 2007 by Anthony J. Fejfar The Rule of Law, is a Metaphysical Law, which exists independent of any knower,in the World of The Forms. This is the Platonist position. The Aristotelian position isthat the Rule of Law, is a Metaphysical Law, which exists independent of any knower inSubstantial Form. For Theists, the Forms exist in the Mind of God. The Forms areguides, not cookie cutters, and they manifest probabilistically.The Rule of Law contains within it all the laws necessary for a Just and Equitablelegal system. Common Law Rules relating to Property, Contract, Tort, and ProceduralLaw, all exist in the World of the Forms as an aspect of the Rule of Law. Thus, I arguethat God favors the Rule of Law and Metaphysics.Karl Marx, in the Communist Manifesto, argued that Law is a sham, and merelyreflects economics or politics. This is absurd. Law is ordered toward Justice, andEquity is ordered toward Social Justice. While Law may take economics or politics intoaccount as factors to be considered, from time to time, Law cannot be reduced to mereeconomics or politics. Law is based upon four Natural Law Ethical Principles:Reciprocity, Utility, Proportionality, and Equity. These are neither economic nor political principles.
