22 New world laws. Tom Woods sarcastically says they are awesome.

"23 Awesome Laws We Should Have Here."

23) '[G]roundbreaking piece of [Bolivian] legislation redefines the Earth and all its inhabitants as a living system with rights instead of a commodity to be exploited.'

There are 22 other examples.
http://www.lewrockwell.com/blog/lewrw/archives/132542.html

Go straight to list here.

1) Law of the Earth: All its inhabitants are a living system with rights instead of a commodity to be exploited.

2) Gross National Happiness (GNH) is a measure of the population’s general level of well-being.

3) Renewable Energy Acts mandate that 80% of the country’s power will come from renewable sources.

I would suggest some guidelines as this topic covers 23 ideas.
Prefix comment title with a 0) when referring to the Original Post (OP) in general.

Prefix comment title with the the number of the law referenced.

Use your vote. Build a reference, present arguments, hold discussions

Some resources may prove useful. Emmerich de Vattel's The Law of Nations or the Principles of Natural Law (1758) is referenced in the Constitution.

Did John Locke speak to the issue the right of someone monopolizing control of a resource?

Alexis de Tocqueville Democracy in America toured America and its's territories in 1832 the wrote "Democracy in America" 1835-1840. Dr. Paul brought it up in the Cornell&West interview. What did Dr. Paul see? What did Alexis see. Did he see anything that worked. We could use some clues today.

Feel free. TIA!

How can you not love the mindset of compulsory voting?

"I want compulsory voting because all of the people not voting will vote like me if we force them to vote snarf snarf herp de derp snarf."

A few months ago I had progressive yahoo take a pause from sniffing his flatus flagon to "educate" me on the necessity of compulsory voting, but he was comically oblivious to that fact that he is in the minority with his radical progressive elitism. Finally I got him to admit that a forced majority would probably vote against him, but he didn't care because he thought that would still be best for society if everyone was forced to participate. Like a typical modern progressive, he advocated authoritarianism just for the sake of conformity.

I was agitated just reflecting on this stupid conversation.

If I was held to do

If I was held to do compulsory voting, my ballot would read 'Eat S... and Die' every four years.

14) Compulsary voting

Hello Marc,

"Ten countries, from Singapore to the Democratic Republic of Congo, Australia enforce compulsory voting."

Off the top of my head the idea of voluntary participation in government is a first principle.

Government coercion strongly suggests to me a government so miserable that no one consents to vote. In the last election 49% of eligible American voters abstained. Our government creates a lot of misery.

But this seems like a weak argument.

What is the proposed benefit of this compulsion? Is it to benefit government or the voters?

Interesting post. Prediction:

Interesting post. Prediction:

I suspect you are going to see a bunch of comments coming in to question the concept of "natural laws" and the relevance of "God" (and/or "existence of whom") ... and eventually also a bunch of those willing to put the almost exclusive blame on it (idea and God's existence, faith, etc) for all past infamies.

But, sure, never mind that the overwhelming majority of horrors we've seen happening over the past hundred years or so all over the place on this planet have very little, if anything at all, to do with either the "natural laws" or "God" - and everything to do with the exact opposites, instead.

I sincerely wish you best of luck with the feedback you'll get, nevertheless.

P.S.
Especially expect brilliant comments from a certain "littlespy" - no doubts those will bring you delight for their outstanding informative content, intelligence, and open-mindedness.

Thanks for the encouraging bump.

Science purifies Religion by warning of superstitions tendencies.

Religion intends to unbind the ligaments imposed by understanding their historical, psychological and physiological underpinnings.

Where religion brings forth free men and women is saves science from meaninglessness.

Science is provable, universal and objective.

True religiosity is meaningful. Real yet subjective.

To science, liberty is anathema. In nature, events are causes and effect.

Religion rightly protests for experience makes liberty subjectively real. Leaving a friend free or being befriended is not measured by precision instruments.

The subject-object relationship provides a logical (meaningful) framework for discussion and debate.
