Obey the law or get a ticket.

Law is a system of rules, usually enforced through a set of institutions. It shapes politics, economics and society in numerous ways and serves as a primary social mediator of relations between people. In many systems of law, people go to court where there is a judge and lawyers argue. Contract law regulates everything from buying a bus ticket to trading on derivatives markets. Property law defines rights and obligations related to the transfer and title of personal (often referred to as chattel) and real property. Trust law applies to assets held for investment and financial security, while tort law allows claims for compensation if a person's rights or property are harmed. If the harm is criminalised in a statute, criminal law offers means by which the state can prosecute the perpetrator. Constitutional law provides a framework for the creation of law, the protection of human rights and the election of political representatives. Administrative law is used to review the decisions of government agencies, while international law governs affairs between sovereign nation states in activities ranging from trade to environmental regulation or military action. Writing in 350 BC, the Greek philosopher Aristotle declared, "The rule of law is better than the rule of any individual."

Common Law vs. Civil Law

Legal systems of the world:      Civil law      Common law      Bi-juridical/mixed (civil and common law)      Islamic law (Sharia)

Michael A. Hoffman II explains on page 13 of in his book "Judaism's Strange Gods" that the United States system of jurisprudence (common law) has degenerated from courts that ruled according to God's law (civil law), to courts that make the law through previous judicial interpretation of case law (precedent) under the concept of stare decisis, "to stand by decisions and not disturb the undisturbed"[1]. Precedents typically come from higher courts showing an example of the lower what to do. This is entirely Talmudic and reflects the subversion the American nation[1]. "The growth of Talmudic Law, in all its aspects, was for the most part, the work of judicial interpretation rather than of formal legislation... The judge served in effect as a creator of law and not only as its interpreter..."[2].

The contrast from common law is civil law, which does not work through precedent, and would only base itself on previous legal decisions (stare devisis) when there are a series, of many, many such similar rulings in the past (jurisprudence constante) rather than one or two. Jurisprudence constante also is not based on a higher court's ruling telling a lower court what to do and can instead have a higher court be influenced by hundreds of the same court decisions that lower courts make. However, that is civil law and in common law jurisprudence constante matters little; for example, the Louisiana Court of Appeals has explicitly noted that jurisprudence constante is merely a secondary source of law, which cannot be authoritative and does not rise to the level of stare decisis.

Canadia's legal system

The corrupt legal system of Canada rules that farmers whose crops are destroyed from cross-contamination of GM foods must pay hundreds of millions of dollars to Monsanto, even if less than 1% of a crop is contaminated farmers no longer own their seeds or plants. Even though the farmers are the victims and Monsanto attacked its victims with thugs.[4]
