Human Law

“Every human law has just so much of the nature of law as is derived from the law of nature,” Thomas Aquinas wrote. “But if at any point it deflects from the law of nature, it is no longer a law but a perversion of the law.”

Quotes:

“Hard work and earning a living are the ethics of past generations that are slowly being ground to dust in the flurry to socialize  America and re-distribute wealth.  Having succeeded and having money is now thought of as a crime not far behind rape and arson.”  Mark Grant

Quotes:

on socialism:  “It is not the pioneer of a better and finer world, but the spoiler of what thousands of years of civilization have created.  It does not build; it destroys.  For destruction is the essence of it.”

” A society that chooses between capitalism and socialism does not choose between two social systems; it chooses between social cooperation and the disintegration of society.  Socialism is not an alternative to capitalism; it is an alternative to any system under which men can live as human beings. “

Ludwig von Mises

Quotes:

 Jeremy Myers wrote a post entitled The Worldwide Threat of Christian Moderates in which he said,

I believe that many of us Christians needlessly endanger the lives of other people simply by the way we live.

“The threat is not from those who see what is wrong with the world and try to do something about it. The threat is from those who do not care to know what is going on the world. It is apathy, not activism, which threatens nations and destroys lives, because when we haven’t a care in the world we tend not to care for those in the world either.”

Sam Adams:

“It does not take a majority to prevail … but rather an irate, tireless minority, keen on setting brushfires of freedom in the minds of men.”

Quotes:

“We have no government armed with power capable of contending with human  passions unbridled by morality and religion. Avarice, ambition, revenge or  gallantry would break the strongest cords of our Constitution as a whale goes  through a net. Our Constitution is designed only for a moral and religious  people. It is wholly inadequate for any other.” – John Adams, Oct. 11, 1798 in  an Address to the military
