"to build an order where, instead of might making right, right would make might."

'The vision of a government of laws and not of men is almost as old as civilisation itself. In a hallway not far from this podium is a replica of the code of laws promulgated by Hammurabi more than three thousand years ago, in the land we now call Iraq.

Much of Hammurabi's code now seems impossibly harsh. But etched into its tablets are principles of justice that have been recognised, if seldom fully implemented, by almost every human society since his time:

Legal protection for the poor.

Restraints on the strong, so that they cannot oppress the weak.

Laws publicly enacted, and known to all.

That code was a landmark in mankind's struggle
to build an order where, instead of might making right, right would make might.'

a "Point" * a_Point_in_time - Kofi_Annan *

Annan opened this year's annual debate of world leaders at the United Nations by critising Bush's plan to deliver democracy to Iraq through force in a pointed speech aimed at underlining the importance of "the_rule_of_law".

"Those who seek to bestow legitimacy must themselves embody it, and those who invoke international law must themselves submit to it," Annan said in a speech that drew applause from the presidents and ministers on hand. 040921

The Graces From Heaven "You cannot just walk into a country whose government you don't like"

oldephebe When practitoners and observers and those who have a vested interest in the favorable outcome of certain proceeding cite the "Rule of Law" they avoid resposibility for making the human and moral choice.

There are some who believe the beggings of what would become The Magna Carta and the undergirdings of Talmudic adjudication originated in Sumer over five thousand years ago, but we are HERE now in this age.

The process of liberation begins with the individual, so I am addressing as an individual other individuals. Whether one sees it or not, most of us ARE enslaved. Liberation will happen first between the ears.
