If you have read my previous e-mail, which included Kenn d'Oudney's
fully-referenced explanation ... then this e-mail should (hopefully)
"wrap it all up into a neat little bow".
(Before I do that, please bear in mind ... and recall ... the Common
Law, as defined in my book:
1. Do not deliberately cause anyone else any injury
(mental or physical) ... and try - are far as possible - not to
do it by accident.
2. Do not deliberately cause anyone else any loss ... and
try - are far as possible - not to do it by accident.
3. Do not breach anyone else's peace.
4. Do not employ any mischief in your promises, agreements
We get all this "Judges said this ... Judges do that ... Oh ...
they're bringing out thousands of new laws a year ... Oh ... Oh
...Oh ...Supreme Court ... County Court ... Oh ... Oh ...!!!!!???"
It's all very simple.
If Politicians can "make Law", then why do we employ Juries?
If Judges can "make Law", then why do we employ Juries?
All you have to do is to answer those two questions.
Now. I'll tell you what answers you'll get.
You'll get: "Judges make Law for CIVIL matters, and Juries
make Law for CRIMINAL matters".
What you WON'T get is any answer to the first question, above (that
question gets ignored)
So, you can ask "You didn't mention Politicians, you didn't
answer the first question"
You'll get "Politicians/Parliament/Congress make Law for BOTH
CIVIL AND CRIMINAL matters"
So, you can say "Thanks ... now go back to the first question:
Why, then, do we employ Juries?"
So you can add "Oh, and btw, libel, slander and defamation are
CIVIL matters ... but we employ Juries for them ... so have
another go at all your answers ..."
The reason for this is very, very, simple
Irrespective of what brainwashed ROBOTs say (and how many
BILLIONS of them say it ...) ... the facts remain:
POLITICIANS CANNOT MAKE LAW ... NEVER COULD ... NEVER WILL ...
JUDGES CANNOT MAKE LAW ... NEVER COULD ... NEVER WILL ... and
THAT'S WHY WE (ARE FORCED TO?) EMPLOY JURIES.
(Thus, if Politicians cannot make Law, and what they make are
Statutes ... then STATUTES CANNOT BE LAW)
All it takes is Single-Think ... as opposed to the Double-Think
we've all be schooled in, since birth.
And that fits perfectly with everything Kenn d'Oudney wrote, and all
the references he quoted to all the historic Thinkers &
Luminaries including Sir William Blackstone, Sir Edward Coke,
Lysander Spooner ... etc. etc.
(Oh ... one final point. Referring to the Magna Carta 1215 can - a
times - be thrown back at you as "That's a very old thing"
... the implication being that "It's old, and thus not relevant
to today". The re-joiner is "It's age is it's STRENGTH
... the fact that it has stood, unchanged, for 700+ years is a
measure of it's importance, eternal relevance, applicability,
