These universals, such as animal, nation, beauty, circle, were held to be mere names, hence the term nominalism. For example, the name 'circle' is applied to things that are round and is thus a general designation, but no concrete identity with a separate essence of roundness exists corresponding to the name. The nominalistic doctrine is opposed to the philosophical theory called extreme realism, according to which universals have a real and independent existence prior to and apart from particular objects."....Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © 1993-1998 Microsoft Corporation.

Nerva, Marcus Cocceius (about 35-98 A.D.), Roman emperor (96-98 A.D.), known as the first of the so-called good emperors. He was born in Narnia, Umbria, to parents of senatorial rank. He was twice consul, in 71 with the emperor Vespasian as colleague and in 90 with the emperor Domitian as colleague. When Domitian was assassinated in 96, Nerva was elected emperor by the Senate, reflecting the choice both of the people and of the soldiers. As an emperor Nerva displayed great wisdom and moderation. The activities of the informers who had flourished under Domitian were checked. Nerva chose senators as his councillors and allowed the Senate to perform its traditional functions. He attempted to reduce the costs of government. Being interested in the economic welfare of his country, he had the Senate pass an agrarian law that provided for the purchase of land for poor citizens. Even more effective was his legislation to maintain the children of poor parents in the towns of Italy at public expense. Because of his advanced age and feeble health, Nerva was not vigorous enough to repress the demands of the Praetorian Guard, who had favored his predecessor and insisted on the execution of the assassins of Domitian, retained in office by Nerva. Wishing to place the government in strong hands, Nerva adopted as his son and successor Marcus Ulpius Trajanus, usually known as Trajan, who was then in command of the Roman legions on the Rhine River. Nerva ruled for three months with Trajan, who then succeeded him.....comprised with Microsoft® Encarta® Encyclopedia 99. © 1993-1998 Microsoft Corporation. All rights reserved.

natural law.noun
a law or body of laws that derives from nature (means, derived from the Creator) and is believed to be binding upon human actions apart from or in conjunction with laws established by human authority

Natural Law: The only actual law we need is to do good to others being careful not to do any harm; do unto others what you would have them do unto you and don't do unto others what you would not have them do unto you.

The Greeks could see that we could recognize actions as inherently lawful or unlawful, without the need of the state to tell us; they had lived through some excellent examples of lawless states. They came out with an answer quite amazing.

Aristotle believed each kind of animal has a special nature. They all know or discover what they need to do in order to lead the life that they are physically fitted to live. Humans too are naturally capable of knowing how to live together and do business with each other without killing each other.

The so-called 'Wild West' which history shows was not nearly as wild as many modern cities with strict gun control, existed beyond the reach of state power. People possessed the right of property and businesses functioned. (Kopel, 323 -373)

Natural law follows from the nature of men. We have the right to life, liberty and property, the right to defend ourselves against those who would rob, enslave or kill us. We have inalienable rights from the creator.

Law derives from our right to defend ourselves and our property, not from the power of the state. 

Natural Law comes from each person being intuitive enough to sense the order in the universe that surrounds them.

Einstein did not create general relativity, nor did Newton create the law of gravity, nor does anyone create natural law. These things are discovered, then used by mankind. It just is there, proven by its ability to affect those who understand it and those being affected by it who may not understand it yet. There are many natural laws universally applicable to all mankind.

Natural law was taught in the great Universities of Oxford, Salamanca, Prague and Krakow and in many other places. In England the theory of natural law led to the Magna Carta, the Glorious Revolution, the declaration of right and the English Enlightenment. It was the basis for the revolution in the U.S.A. and the its bill of rights. It is everyone's right and duty to forcibly uphold natural law, thus in order to get a law enforced or to get away with enforcing it oneself, ones lawyer had to argue natural law, rather than customary law. Thus the Netherlands came to be governed predominantly by natural law, rather than by men or by customary law. From the right to self defense comes the right to the rule of law, but from the right to property comes a multitude of like rights, such as the right to privacy "An Englishman's home is his castle." Further, Locke repeatedly, in ringing words, reminded us that a ruler is legitimate so far as he upholds the law.

A ruler that violates natural law is illegitimate. He has no right to be obeyed, his commands are mere force and coercion. Rulers who act lawlessly, whose laws are unlawful, are mere criminals and should be dealt with.
