Maxims of Equity
Banks are supposedly organized under a sub-sub category of law known as 'trust law' which is a sub-category of property law, a sub-category of common law. But surprisingly, underlying this convoluted system of laws is something very simple that originated in Rome: a set of statements termed, "Maxims of Equity" (read them here).
Here is what Wikipedia says about the legal concept of 'Equity':
"In jurisdictions following the English common law, Equity is the set of maxims that 'reign over all the law' and 'from which flow all civil laws' (Bacon). The Chancery, the office of equity, was the 'office that issued the writs that were the foundation of the common law system'. (Id.; Spence, supra, at 224). Equity is wholly 'unaffected by any state laws' (Pomeroy) and is 'everything, even without law' (John Bouvier).
"Equity is commonly said to 'mitigate the rigor of common law', allowing courts to use their discretion and apply justice in accordance with natural law."
So I propose the world switch from private law maxims of equity to public law maxims of love.
Maxims of Love
Here is a set of proposed Maxims of Love:
The law of freedom - All living systems have the right to be free.
The law of protection - All living systems have a right to be protected from the harmful actions of others.
The law of balance - All living systems unable or unwilling to live and act in accordance with the maxims of love will be given the opportunity to either correct their behavior or accept the consequences.
The law of intervention - The community has the right to intervene in all situations where the maxims of love are violated regardless of other laws, customs, ethics, or practices.
If the maxims of love align with your values, please feel free to join the Facebook group, Respublica of Earth (click here). The goal of this group is to explore and practice the maxims of love in an accepting environment. Learn more about Respublica of Earth by exploring the documents found here.
