(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 of Liberty; and 3. Starting with Logic. Please note that all three of these methods of proving the validity of a reasonable legal system do not involve religion or God, as such, and therefore the method used here is a type of secular natural law. The validity of a reasonable legal system can be proven by starting with Property. In the first 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 a thing 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 have a 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 you have the right to do anything reasonable with that chunk of concrete property and also you have the right to defend your possession of that property. Once a legal system developes, one ordinarily is expected to use the legal system to defend your property interests, rather than having to resort to self help. Also, if I were to place that chunk of concrete property on my fireplace mantle and then walk into the kitchen, that chunk of concrete property would be in my constructive 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 title at 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 my use 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 by government. 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 involve a logical contradiction. Intuition is defined as preconscious and or unconscious, high speed analogical thought processes, which, can derive information non-locally at a distance using quantum intuition. Those who believe in Liberty come together to form a legal system where each one’s Liberty is protected by a social compact or social contract. Where two persons both seem to have a reasonable legal position, and these two positions have come into conflict, then this dispute can be resolved through litigation in court. Logic is also the basis for a reasonable legal system. As described above, Logic provides that fraudulent sophistric arguments and statements are illegal. This is the Law of Logic. Once
this is in place, one has the individual right of Academic Freedom to insure that another is not harming 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
to make sure that another is not violating you individual rights under the Law of Logic, not to be harmed or damaged by the illegal sophistry of another. The Law of Logic provides a universal, irrefutable, secular natural right which protects one from illegal sophistry. Thus, as seen above, Secular Natural Law is proven valid, without any reference to God or religion, using the concept of Liberty, the notion of Property, and the Law of Logic.
