The Collapse In The Rule Of Law
Monday, 29 April 2013
One of the critical factors that contributed to the collapse of Empires, Nations, and City States is when the Rule of Law collapses. Some have asked where they can read more about jurisdiction and the Rule of Law. William Blackstone published in 1765 the seminal work on this subject. His writing served as the foundation upon which the United States was born. The Founding Fathers used his work, Commentaries on the Laws of England, to establish the Rule of Law in America.
The Rule of Law is being assaulted everywhere, but never as great as it is among the Anglo-Saxon nations. In Australia, we also see the drive to eliminate the right to remain silent and the denial of the right to the presumption of innocence. These are critical aspects of freedom.
