You will have a problem understanding me because I teach formal logic of juridical science. I do not teach contemporary proceduralism, which consists of legal pseudoscience operating under the sophistry of positive law – in violation of 5000 years of european (eugenic) tradition.
—What exactly do you think a law is?—
It’s not a question of think. It’s a question of KNOW. There is only one law possible, that is tort (trespass). All else is either contract under it, agent contract of the commons (legislation) under it, or edict of general case (edict) or edict of a specific case (regulation) outside of it, or a command by a general in time of war.
— You don’t know what a crime is either —
A crime is a violation of demonstrated interests that is ensured by the state. A tort is a crime of demonstrated interest the resolution of which is insured by the state. The variation between polities is the demarcation between the scope of demonstrated interests insured each way. An administrative crime is a violation by the members of the state of the terms of a contract of the commons. America unfortunately does not separate administrative courts from civil criminal and family courts.
The constraint the strictly constructed natural law places on the government no matter its method of organization and decision, is that it must follow the law of reciprocity we call contract, that forces classes to trade, and legislation (contracts of the commons) constructed as trades. Most of the time trading good behavior for redistribution.
