“You must be the change you want to see in the world.” ~ Mohandas K. Gandhi
There are two main purposes for this aggregation of law information: 1) for my own quick-reference use (as is the case with my other aggregations, and 2) to radically reduce online research time for any interested people who happen to stumble across this website. By making these kinds of aggregations, I don't have spend nearly as much time searching for information which I might have forgotten to archive in my system of folders, files and bookmarks.
"Law" is another one of those so-unspecific-as-to-be-useless-for-anything-but-obfuscation-and-manipulation dual-purpose deception-based words such as "God", "government", "religion", "money", etc. The key to understanding these obfuscatory dual-purpose (i.e. good-evil) words is being able to recognize the difference between when they are being used to mean self-ownership and when they are being used to mean feudalistic "government" ownership/control over B by A. In other words, does "law" mean that you own yourself, your labor, and the produce of your labor? Or does "law" mean I (or some group of "politicians") get to run your life and you have to do what I say?
The main cause of all the divisive fraudulent "left v. right", "religious v. secular", "black v. white", "male v. female", "old v. young", "homosexual v. heterosexual" so-called "controversies", as with most problems, is the huge number of lemming-like sheeple (human sheep) who insist on believing in, following, and obeying inherently evil and inevitably corrupting One-Ring (Power Over the Other) "government". That is so because of the opposite ways in which the mechanics of God's laws and man's laws work.
God's voluntary-compliance cause-and-effect laws are love-based, free-will based, individualism-based and protect all individuals (1) equally, (2) separately, and (3) simultaneously, in other words, the so-called “Golden Rule” which has been wisely paraphrased as “don’t do to anyone else that which you wouldn’t want done to you.” Even atheists should be able to live with that concept, which some of them like to call "The Non-Aggression Principle", since the mathematics of the equation are pragmatically the same for atheist and Christian alike, regardless of the nomenclature.
In direct polar contrast, humankind's deception-based, fear-based, coercion-based and monopoly-on-violence-based laws by definition and necessity inevitably pit the "legal" rights of one individual or group against the "legal" rights of another individual or group in the following dialectic perfectly exemplified by the abortion "issue": the child's right to life (thesis) versus the mother's right to privacy (antithesis). Under this paradigm, after spending huge amounts of money on lawyers for going into their courts, fraudulently called "the people's courts", a phony illusion (e.g. Roe v. Wade) of genuine resolution and harmony is arrived at (synthesis). This subtle and complex scam is known as the Hegelian dialectic, a means by which clever individuals create and manage social crises for the purpose of gaining power and money to benefit themselves.

JEFF DICKSTEIN (lawyer): (at about 5:25 into vid) “All a lawyer means is that you paid a lot of money to a university to be brainwashed that the judges decide what the law is. When I was in law school, we never read the Constitution. We read decisions of judges telling us what the Constitution meant.” (at about 6:00 into vid) "Well, there is no [U.S.] Constitution anymore. It's just an idle word. It doesn't exist. It's been flushed down the toilet. It doesn't exist. There's no 1st Amendment. There's no 2nd Amendment. There's no 4th Amendment. There's no 5th Amendment. There's no 6th Amendment. It just doesn't exist."

1. It bears constant repetition: explaining the words "scum" and "scumbag" as an epithet used in self-defensive demonization against select individuals and/or ideologies. Hey, what can I say? It is a long-proven statistical fact that negative political ads are in fact effective. And since the so-called "left" uses lies, half-truths, demonization and the politics of personal destruction as standard political strategies, failure to engage in a little "turn about is fair play" merely makes it easier for the various assortments of disordered illiterate fascist control freaks to destroy individual freedom. As I said on my blog homepage, "Some folks just think they're smarter than everybody else, a higher form of life than everybody else. So, instead of engaging in good faith discussions about specific ideas, they simply resort to deception, sophistry, unspecificity, undefined terms, manipulation, demonization and the politics of personal destruction AS A MATTER OF PREFERRED STRATEGY to get their little spoiled-brat control-freak way. Such behavior is anathema to intellectual honesty, an open mind, a kind heart, free inquiry, the freedoms of thought and speech, and the free flow of information. It MUST be eternally warred against if humankind is to entertain a realistic hope of ever reaching its full spiritual and intellectual potential." To avoid the violence which is directly related to repression of free speech and the crushing of polite and civil discourse, I believe it is essential to engage in strategic tit-for-tat with wannabe-clever manipulative demonizers by openly calling them what they are: the anti-freedom, anti-Golden-Rule scum of the earth (aka "scumbags"). Accordingly, it doesn't bother me in the least to do so. No less brilliant a person than Jesus of Nazareth himself referred to the scumbags of his day as "hypocrites", "blind guides", "vipers" and "whitewashed sepulchres". To paraphrase Ann Coulter, Jesus was not some moron driving around in a Volvo with a "be nice to people" bumper sticker on it. So, having read The Art of Political War and Other Radical Pursuits by David Horowitz, I don't have any problem with calling "scum" what it is. Surely a huge majority of people, especially black people, would agree that any person or group who sincerely believes in slavery or pedophilia, by way of example, qualify as "scum". Point made.
