Government and Natural Law

Government is not reason, it is not eloquence – it is force.  Like fire, it is a dangerous servant and a fearful master.” – George Washington, attributed

In my last post we explored the principle of Natural Law, and concluded that since our Creator had placed certain laws in nature, these laws bind all men equally.  We ended by asking two questions: can any other law or piece of legislation be legitimate in the face of Natural Law, and who should enforce Natural Law? At first glance, these two questions may seem only marginally … Read the rest

Only Two Laws

mayburytwolaws

To understand political power right, and derive it from its original, we must consider what state all men are naturally in, and that is a state of perfect freedom to order their actions and dispose of their possessions and persons as they think fit, within the bounds of the law of nature, without asking leave or depending upon the will of any man.

“Make Mine Freedom”

MMF

 

In 1948, as part of an anti-communism/socialism campaign, Harding College (now Harding University) produced a 10-minute cartoon titled, “Make Mine Freedom.”1 Its message, however, is just as applicable to America in 2013 as it was when it first aired 65 years ago.

Seven Lessons from the Ant(Works)

My younger sister got an AntWorks set for her birthday earlier this spring. Instead of using sand as the material through which the ants tunnel, AntWorks ant farms use a specially formulated transparent blue gel that the ants both tunnel through and eat. This makes for a far superior ant farm to the messy, sandy ones of yesteryear.

This was the third AntWorks set my family has had over the past few years, but even so the novelty of watching the ants make their tunnels and chambers never wears off. This time … Read the rest
