When parliaments replaced monarchs, dictatorships and military rule as the main source of law, political parties immediately polarized according to perceived class interests, the Right representing the wealthy and powerful, the Left representing working classes, peasants and factory employees.
Religious sectarianism apart, elected assemblies throughout the world became polarized in this way, the Left-Right confrontation always evident. Some individual legislators may have been motivated by idealism, but most were motivated by their class interests, the opportunity for personal self-aggrandizement and prestige, and in many cases the interests of those Law governance financed their campaigns.
In the democratic tradition, governance was based on the power of numbers. Majority will was law, even though it might be irresponsible or disadvantageous to minorities, or to future generations, or even to the financial credibility of over-indebted governments, the Majority was always right.
Meanwhile, as the guilt of growing inequality was reflected in growing taxation, expenditure took over from simple legislation as the main pre-occupation of government, and the added influence accompanying the power to dispense money tended to corrupt legislators.
With religion-motivated terrorism on the increase, governments became quietly oppressive, unresponsive and secretive, their powers and the taxation needed to support them steadily increasing without any apparent limit. And that discouraging tale of governance applied only to the minority of better-run countries.
For the rest, greed, corruption and widespread poverty were the rule. This would become the basis of law and governance in the New Age. Preamble The seeds of self-preservation and self-improvement are, of necessity, born into every one of us. If we use this impetus to create, to invent, to improve on what has gone before, collaborating with those around us, then civilization will advance to the benefit of all.
But if the desire for self-aggrandizement is exercised at the expense of others, if we seek to gain wealth, not through our own creative labours alone but by exploiting and dispossessing others, by expropriating the work and wealth of others, the more aggressive will become richer while others grow poorer, and resentment, acrimony, conflict, confrontation and ultimately war will result.
The avoidance of this path to social self-destruction provided the motivation of law and governance in the New Age. The foundation of law and social conduct in the New Age is the perception that none should have power or dominion over others; none should be permitted to exploit or steal from others; none should be able to gain at the expense of others, none should increase his or her wealth by diminishing that of others.
Simply stated, governance is based on a Presumption of Liberty, everyone being free to do as they like, qualified only by one simple, supreme law: The purpose of law and governance is to prevent people from injuring one another. Injury can take many forms, personal injury, unfair or irresponsible use of natural resources, dishonesty and inequity in trade and commerce.
The duty of government is to identify injury then take steps to prevent it, while at the same time ensuring that government itself remains honest, open and productive, and that its laws remain within the strictly defined limitation of the prevention of injury.
The Structure of Government The whole structure and purpose of government is guided by one Supreme Law: It verifies all proposed legislation in order to ensure that it complies with the One Law. If there is an injured party, or if any injury is committed, the law must be seen to prevent that injury.
But it is equally important to ensure that the law goes no further, thus intruding into personal liberty without justification. If there is no injured party, there can be no law. When verifying that proposed legislation is thus compliant, the process by which the law was debated and formulated is also verified to ensure that all the specified due processes were complied with and all those involved were duly heard.
The Executive maintains open-access to all, receiving complaints of insufficient or excessive law, and if justified ensuring timely and effective remedy.
