Fast Thoughts

Josf, today is Saturday and I must get busy, but I wanted to give you 2 thoughts on that list of laws.

1. Do no Harm
2. The Golden Rule
3. The 10 Commandments.

# 2 is the night. An L shape. Not just a straight line of Do No Harm, but an L. I will treat you nice, because that is the way I want to be treated. It precludes harm. I would say Do No Harm is defensive. The Golden Rule is the offense…never needing to get to the point of defense. The 10 Commandments are the How of Not doing harm. Jesus boiled the 10 commandments into 2: Love God, Love your Neighbor. Love is the night (which I call the horse LOL). Love is the golden rule offensive move whereas Do No Harm and the 10 commandments are the defensive move.

It seems to me that sortition per GregP is because of man's base nature to consume others. That way that nature is pre-empted by sortition.

You made me laugh with your 2nd grade pissing episode. It reminds me of my youngest who has not done that at school, but has been creative with his fire hose. You Joe, would have had your hide tanned so as to not chase people around and piss on them..My youngest has been in big trouble for exercising his fire hose in the screened in, carpeted patio on multiple occasions. The least he could do is go to the grass to alleviate the clean up.

I listened the half of the 2 hour 3rd video of Miller. I found it interesting. I had mixed feelings in the first 10-15 minutes wondering what you would think about his take on the Vietnam war. He also discussed the money system which I thought would be of interest to you. I fell asleep so I need to relisten to the rest.

I also watched this yesterday. It is about 17 minutes. I hope you will watch it. It is Griffen. It made me scared and feeling like what is the hope. But a remedy is given at the end, but I do not know how to exercise the remedy. Please if you have a chance, listen and give me some words: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RS8LA-5fmrs G.

The other thing, you gave me the latin definitions of nation and federation. I wonder what happens when you add the word con to federate. (Or if that 'ate' changes the meaning as well) It seems to me that “con” has different meanings: Contra wise or conglomerate or contain or Spanish con is with i.e. chili con queso. This is an idea I was going to bring up back in the great abyss when we were discussing Patrick Henry’s work on the constitution, but it seems when con is used with confederation it did not support my argument so I did not pursue it with you. Was that deceit? I just thought of that question…Sorry, but I think at that point I thought you were the C word. Anyways, I cannot exactly remember now what the Con with confederate meant, but I don’t think it meant contra.

Tell me what you think about this…yes to the feudal system. It was a system of joint power of individuals against a monarchy? Was not the feudal system that which brought about Magna Carta?

The nation would be where the feudal system would be bypassed so as to make a direct contract with those born where by removing the feudal power of the individual states which were actually protectorates of the citizens? That is a fast and not thought out theory so I am tossing it out to you. I know we like equity, but people are people and we are all born into different stations and abilities, so I suppose there will always be those who rise in power so if that power is righteous power it will be protectorate of individuals who have less power. Is that wrong?
I have to get busy now on the things of life. Thank you for the funny 2nd grade story. Joe, you may be base and all those words you said about yourself. Please compare that to Holy God and see why he purchased spiritual liberty with the shedding of his own blood. We are all base. Some of us put on a front, some of us don’t and some of us have the very spirit of God living in us to counter that baseness. And that is where the rubber meets the road in the life of a Christian.

More on Romans 13:
9 For this, Thou shalt not commit adultery , Thou shalt not kill , Thou shalt not steal , Thou shalt not bear false witness , Thou shalt not covet ; and if there be any other commandment, it is briefly comprehended in this saying, namely, Thou shalt love thy neighbour as thyself. 10 Love worketh no ill to his neighbour: therefore love is the fulfilling of the law. 11 And that, knowing the time, that now it is high time to awake * out of sleep: for now is our salvation nearer than when we believed . 12 The night is far spent * , the day is at hand : let us therefore cast off the works of darkness, and let us put on the armour of light.13 Let us walk honestly, as in the day; not in rioting and drunkenness, not in chambering and wantonness, not in strife and envying. 14 But put ye on the Lord Jesus Christ, and make not provision for the flesh, to fulfil the lusts thereof.

Can you identify old English of Do no Harm in that passage?

I am glad you are looking at the law issue with chess in mind, the counter play. That is something that I do not do much of.

Did you see where I asked if you would read or listen to 1 chapter of Romans a day while I read the Pied Piper? I think the book of Romans would be a good one to look at while you are looking at law. A competitive point of view to add to your knowledge?

If I have missed something that I should have answered, please tell me. Thank you for your discussion. It is food for thought. Seems my "2 thoughts" turned into many.
