Secular Natural LawByAnthony J. Blackstone, B.A., J.D., Phd., Coif Perpetual (C)Copyright (2012 C.E.) By Anthony J. Fejfar and Neothomism P.C. (PA)Although Natural Law is sometimes thought to exist in relation to some religion or another, this is not necessarily the case at all. In fact, the validity of a reasonable legal system can be proven in at least three ways: 1. Starting with Property; 2. Starting with the concept oLiberty; and 3. Starting with Logic. Please note that all three of these methods of proving thevalidity of a reasonable legal system do not involve religion or God, as such, and therefore themethod used here is a type of secular natural law.The validity of a reasonable legal system can be proven by starting with Property. In thefirst instance, property is defined as a “thing-in-itself.” Thus, if one were to see a chunk of concrete on a piece of unclaimed land, that chunk of concrete is property in the sense of being athing in itself. Once you take that chunk property into your possession by picking it up and putting it into your pocket, that chunk of concrete becomes a “thing-for-you,” and thus you havea possessory interest in that property. Now, consistent with the common law, that chunk of concrete property is now your property by reason of Discovery and Conquest, and thus youhave the right to do anything reasonable with that chunk of concrete property and also you havethe right to defend your possession of that property. Once a legal system developes, oneordinarily is expected to use the legal system to defend your property interests, rather than havingto resort to self help. Also, if I were to place that chunk of concrete property on my fireplacemantle and then walk into the kitchen, that chunk of concrete property would be in myconstructive possession, but not my actual possession. Thus, if I were to loan that chunk of 
concrete property to my neighbor, then I would still retain constructive possession of that chunk of concrete property, but not actual possession. Put another way, I would retain bare legal titleat law of the concrete chunk by reason of my constructive possession of that concrete chunk of  property. As right of property, I have the right to do with that property as I wish as long as myuse is reasonable, and thus I have the right of contract to sell that concrete chunk of property.My rights in my property are also protected by a legal system which has been formed with other  property owners by the use of tort law and criminal law, and, my rights in my property are also protected by a Constitution which gives me protection from any unreasonable actions bygovernment.Liberty is defined as the freedom to act reasonably. Reason is defined as a composite of love, logic, and intuition. Love is defined as a positive feeling flowing outward and or inward.Logic is defined as stated above, as that which is not illogical, that is, that which does not involvea logical contradiction. Intuition is defined as preconscious and or unconscious, high speedanalogical thought processes, which, can derive information non-locally at a distance usingquantum intuition. Those who believe in Liberty come together to form a legal system whereeach one’s Liberty is protected by a social compact or social contract. Where two persons bothseem to have a reasonable legal position, and these two positions have come into conflict, thenthis dispute can be resolved through litigation in court.Logic is also the basis for a reasonable legal system. As described above, Logic providesthat fraudulent sophistric arguments and statements are illegal. This is the Law of Logic. Oncethis is in place, one has the individual right of Academic Freedom to insure that another is notharming you by engaging in illegal acts of sophistry which could be hurting or damaging you.Thus, each one has the inherent, irrevocable, individual right of Academic Freedom which is used
