    • How To Bring The People Together

      Posted by Mark Hamilton

      We can stop the turmoil and divide in our country.  We can stop the hate.  We can stop the civil unrest, end all talk of a civil war.  We can bring the people together with one simple new law.  It’s the elegantly simple solution to all the political angst out there, easily unifying both sides.

      Most people who are passionate about politics, those on both sides, are largely caught up in illusions created by our political leaders.  Ordinary people stand with the left or the right, yet they are nearly all good people.  A simple new law will enable all the good people to escape those illusions that are controlling their emotions…escape the anger and hate with elegantly simple answers we will all agree on.  America needs this!

      This simple solution with a simple question:  “Is it OK for any adult to use force on another adult?  The answer is obvious: “Except for self-defense, NO it is NOT okay for an adult to use force on another adult.  All good people, both on the left and the right, agree that an adult may not use force on another adult, unless in self-defense.

      From that universally agreed upon, obvious premise, a new elegantly simple new law is born that everyone can accept:

      The Prime Law The Prime Law*

      (The Fundamental of Protection)

      Preamble

      *The purpose of human life is to prosper and live happily.

      *The function of government is to provide the conditions that let individuals fulfill that purpose.

      *The Prime Law guarantees those conditions by forbidding the use of initiatory force, fraud, or coercion by any person or group against any individual, property, or contract.

      Article 1

      No person, group of persons, or government shall initiate force, threat of force, or fraud against any individual’s self, property, or contract.

      Article 2

      Force is morally-and-legally justified only for protection from those who violate Article 1.

      Article 3

      No exceptions shall exist for Articles 1 and 2.

      *The Prime Law is the fundamental, natural law of protection (that directs all decisions and actions of the Twelve Visions Party); the Prime Law may not be amended.

      The elegantly simple and blatantly obvious premise that an adult may not use force on another adult, except for self-defense — the Prime Law — will bring together all the people on the left and the right…all the good people.

      As obvious as it is that an adult should not use force on another adult, the government actually does this all the time.  But illusions of goodwill and good intentions obscure the fact that adults (politicians and regulatory bureaucrats) are using force on other adults (citizens).  For example, comply to these regulations or go to prison.  Remember, the only use of force that is moral is self-defense.

      Political leaders may not like the Prime Law (because it limits their power by banishing the use of force) but the people will like it ─ all the people.  It would protect them from adults using force against them.  Moreover, making this obviously benevolent and moral law the law of the land would bring everyone ─ the poor, the needy, the wealthy — the prosperous lives they were meant to have.  See how, as an Amendment to the United States Constitution (or State Constitution), the Prime Law would actually make everyone wealthy, including the poor.

      Indeed the people need and will love the Prime Law — all the people, both on the left and the right.  They will come together, for the Prime Law is the savior of our country and our individual lives.
