Natural Law Matters

Most people by far, understand deep within their soul that 'moral intent' and 'just' actions are "right", and that by acting in this manner they protect themselves from abuse and harm caused by others. They may not understand that their choice to act this way is the natural law of the human world, but they grasp its benefits, even subconsciously. 

They also know that others can act with malicious intent, to cause harm, even death, and that confrontation of this kind requires much more than pleading their attacker employs moral thought, and acts justly toward them. Evil actions and those who commit them need to be arrested, exactly so that destruction is terminated as quickly as possible.

Force initiated by one, or several, against another is criminal. It violates the right of the victim to live his own life in accord with free will choice. Initiated force may be physical or mental, but still it arrests, violates, usurps, denies, forbids or prevents an individual person from living and sustaining his life in the manner of his/her choosing. This explains the need for a Commission of Justice.

Retaliatory force is used to arrest and terminate violence. Justice is the practice of restoring 'just practice'. This explains the tasks of a Commission of Justice.

Whatever may be open to disagreement, there is one act of evil that may not, the act that no man may commit against others and no man may sanction or forgive. So long as men desire to live together, no man may initiate—do you hear me? no man may start—the use of physical force against others.

To interpose the threat of physical destruction between a man and his perception of reality, is to negate and paralyze his means of survival; to force him to act against his own judgment, is like forcing him to act against his own sight. Whoever, to whatever purpose or extent, initiates the use of force, is a killer acting on the premise of death in a manner wider than murder: the premise of destroying man’s capacity to live.

Do not open your mouth to tell me that your mind has convinced you of your right to force my mind. Force and mind are opposites; morality ends where a gun begins. When you declare that men are irrational animals and propose to treat them as such, you define thereby your own character and can no longer claim the sanction of reason—as no advocate of contradictions can claim it. There can be no “right” to destroy the source of rights, the only means of judging right and wrong: the mind.

To force a man to drop his own mind and to accept your will as a substitute, with a gun in place of a syllogism, with terror in place of proof, and death as the final argument—is to attempt to exist in defiance of reality. Reality demands of man that he act for his own rational interest; your gun demands of him that he act against it. Reality threatens man with death if he does not act on his rational judgment; you threaten him with death if he does. You place him in a world where the price of his life is the surrender of all the virtues required by life—and death by a process of gradual destruction is all that you and your system will achieve, when death is made to be the ruling power, the winning argument in a society of men.

Be it a highwayman who confronts a traveler with the ultimatum: “Your money or your life,” or a politician who confronts a country with the ultimatum: “Your children’s education or your life,” the meaning of that ultimatum is: “Your mind or your life”—and neither is possible to man without the other. Source 

The sole purpose and reason for the Commission of Justice, is to arrest unjust actions, thereby to restore justice. Please grasp this point fully. Such Commission is focused on “restorative justice” not “punitive justice” such as we have today. 

The Commission of Justice exists to assess whether, or not, one individual has violated another’s right to pursue their own life without interference. In short, has one, by his/her action(s) violated, constricted, prevented, denied, stopped or arrested another’s unalienable right to sustain his own life, or not. Whilst the Commission of Justice will expose morality and immorality in its process, its sole concern is to arrest and remedy actions that violate one’s right to life and the sustenance of it, including one’s right to the property of one’s efforts.

Composition of a Commission of Justice

Though not detailed on this website, prior consideration of such detail, points to the Commission of Justice best comprising of three levels; 'local', 'national' and 'universal'. These are broad terms, intended to ensure universal cohesion to the principles of natural law and justice that is of Man, for wherever Man may be, or travel. Thus "national" does not necessarily denote a nation, though it may, rather an aggregation of 'local' commissions for the purpose of functional overlap. Correspondingly, "universal" applies to an aggregate number of "National” Commissions, wherein each local Commission of Justice will serve its local jurisdiction, and national bodies cohesively administrate. Hierarchical structures will be necessary within local Commissions, and across the national and universal commissions; strictly for the purpose of efficient functioning. Accordingly, there can be operational rules within each and every Commission of Justice, as for any commercial enterprise, but no rule within the Commission of Justice’s "Code of Law and Ethics" may precipitate or preclude 'just' dealings and rulings.

Universal Commission of Justice

Detailed workings and operations of a Commission of Justice are not shown here, but the following shows how the Commission of Justice might be structured at a local level, country level and international level.

Articles 11 and 12 of the Constitution of Man offers a “Commission of Justice” including all branches chartered as "Regional Commissions of Justice  shall each have jurisdiction in and over a land mass, which area is agreed by the One People, (hereafter jurisdiction), and branches within each. Thus, in Australia, for example, where population is spread thinly over a large land mass, there may be a “Commission of Justice” in each state, with several "Regional Commissions of Justice at the local level. In a country such as New Zealand, there may be  only one Commission of Justice, with regional commissions in the North and South Islands. 

All matters brought before the Commission of Justice are at the regional level (local level - immediate jurisdiction.) The (Country) Commission of Justice that presides over the Regional Commissions has administrative functional only. Correspondingly, a Universal Commission of Justice (Global jurisdiction) that oversees (country) Commissions, also has administrative functional only. This ensures that Justice operates from the bottom upwards, from the people, as natural law provisions, and not from the top down.

1 Local customs are addressed by this method, including for differences between neighbouring jurisdictions. This forbearance does not allow for customs or belief to override the Constitution of Man, however, as clauses 2.4 and 9.2 and 9.3 make very clear.

2  All men are equal. Clause 2.3 forbids eminent domain, thus there can be no statesman, prime minister, dictator, monarch, pope, or president to declare war. In the unlikely event of an immoral and unjust uprising, neighbouring jurisdictions are enabled to band together at any time and place, to ensure their defeat. Functional overlap between neighbouring or abutting jurisdictions is most certain of success, because no army, navy, air force or space weapons exist.

Divisions with the Commission of Justice

There are only two ways by which man can be prevented from living his life.

1 Through bodily harm - destruction of his ability to act.

2 Through mental harm - destruction of his ability to think, and therefore, his ability to act.

Justice is the arrest of these two debilitations, and the restoration of Mans right to think and act in furtherance of his own life.

That sums the whole purpose, and function of the Commission of Justice. Accordingly, the  roles of the Commission are determined.

1 Arrest of mental and bodily harm is the province of a Police Branch, i.e. arresting the use of 'initiated’ force'; mental and physical violence; deprivation of Individual rights.

2 Restoration of 'individual rights' and 'just' action is the province of the Judicial Branch (Justice), to provide remedial and /or corrective facilitities jointly with "administration". To adjudicate alleged actions based on (objective) natural law. (jurists and jurors), free the innocent without prejudice, or remediate transgressors, appointing compensation where applicable. (natural justice)

3 Administration, is necessary for internal cohesion, compliance, and coordination with neighbouring jurisdictions.  The Administrative Branch, or "Support Commission" will attend on funding, overseeing, processing, reporting, remediation, corrective facilities, language translation, coordination, liaison and such other as is found essential for Justice to prevail.)

4 The Commissions tasks can be substantively reduced by it engaging in compilation of (objective) natural law, and making this information available from elementary school all the way through to post graduate study. (See education)  In short, making moral and just information pre-emptively available. While not strictly the Commission’s role, who better could advise of justice than those commissioned to uphold it? Moreover, compilation of this material only has to be done once. Man is Man on every continent, and wherever he travels.

Composition of Judiciary

It is not within the scope of this document, nor desirable here to formulate Composition of the Judiciary. Although this new structure may approximate past judicial structures, new qualifications and prescriptions arise from requirements in the Constitution.of Man, and Declaration of Individual Rights, that delimit and prescribe what I will henceforth refer to as the…

Code of Law and Ethics, of the Commission of Justice

Such document need only be written once, because its application is/will be Universal, being that it is based on the Natural law of the Human World and the Constitution of Man. It cannot be overstressed that writing a Code of Law and Ethics must endorse, without compromise, that its function is to uphold the Constitution of Man, the nature of man including individual rights, and Natural law

Referential terms of exactness

Internal rules governing the functions and methods of the Commission of Justice, must be separated from, and never allow that the Commission can overrule the Natural law of Man, Individual Rights, or the property of Mans labours.
