Loyalty Vs Treason
« on: November 01, 2014, 07:43:16 PM »
What bench marks do we have to help us decide between Loyalty and Treason?
What is it to be loyal to one’s country or to betray one’s country?

In the United Kingdom we have a Parliamentary democracy headed by the King or Queen, how does Parliament work?

Parliament is made up of three things, the House of Commons in which our elected representatives sit. The House of Lords in which the Lords Spiritual,(the Bishops) the Lords Temporal (the Barons) sit and the King or Queen who sits in the House of Lords being the top Baron in the Kingdom.

It has become convention since 1420 for the House of Commons to start legislation, which then goes to the House of Lords, who vet the legislation accept it, reject it or send it back to the House of Commons with recommendations how it should be amended. If it passes through both Houses it is then put before the King for the Royal Assent. When it gets the assent from the King it then becomes law.

The King is born of the Common Law, he is part hereditary part elected. The King has advisors who were originally the important men in the Kingdom, these developed into the Saxon Witan and the Witan into a Parliament as we now know it. This is how it should work.

There are different types of law the oldest being the common law which started out as a set of rules to allow people to live together in harmony and there is constitutional law. This in large measure is a confirmation of the rules of the common law by the King and by a charter. Such constitutional laws are the Charter of Liberties 1100, Magna Carta 1215, the Petition of Right 1628, and the 1689 Bill of Rights. Then there is statute law. There is a great deal of misunderstanding of statute law. Parliament itself was born of the common law and the common law gave Parliament the right to clarify the common law. As society developed the common law was unable to supply a remedy for cases of wrongdoing. Therefore Parliament made law by statute to provide a new remedy. Statute law is real law, but only as long as the statute complies with the spirit of the common law. Which can be very basically described as do no harm.
