Rebellion Against Unjust Government

Natural Law requires that all law and governmental policies be reasonable. The

Substantive Due Process Clause of the American Constitution and the British

Constitution Magna Charta say the same thing based on Natural Law.

John Locke wrote that we all have Individual Natural Rights based on Natural Law

in the State of Nature preceding organized government. The Roman Catholic Church

holds the same position. We have a right to rebel against unreasonable government, and

even use force arms when non-violent strategies don’t work. The Sons of Liberty who

started the American Revolutionary War against the British Military Dictatorship of

Generals Howe and Cornwallis were denying Colonial Americans their Constitutional

Rights under Magna Charta and Natural Law.. This why the philosopher Camus said we

have the right of rebellion against tyranny.
