Governments are instituted among men to protect the lives, liberty and property of the people. Only humans made of flesh and bones are endowed by their Creator with God given rights. Men and women are natural persons while the government they create are legal fictions. The people cannot lawfully transfer power to their government that they themselves do not possess. Man is prohibited from lying, cheating and stealing and therefore cannot grant this power to his government. The power to alter or amend the principles of Natural Law belong to no one. They are designed to be in harmony with nature. Men design their rules around these natural laws, not to replace them, but simply to recognize and validate them.
Men and women were born with a conscience and do not need a government to tell them what is right and what is wrong. Governments were "instituted among men", to govern the law-makers and provide for punishment of crimes. A legitimate government protects the people by punishing those who violate the rights of the people.
In order to secure the blessings of liberty, we must know and understand the principles of natural law. When we violate the laws of nature and nature's God their are unavoidable consequences. If you touch a hot stove you are going to get burned, if you are a Republican or a Democrat.
The Law of the Harvest is the foundation upon which a just society is based.
