A bit more on laws and statutes

Junie 23, 2012 in Sonder kategorie

– The distinction between a law and a statute is that a law applies equally to us all but statutes can be made to favour one sector of society over others, for example, people with disabilities are given preferential parking privileges (which is fair enough) and politicians have given themselves special dispensations re their expenses which the rest of us do not have (which is outrageous).

 

 – There is a compulsion to obey laws. Laws defend our freedoms and liberties and through them we live in peace and harmony with our neighbours. Failure to comply with laws would render an individual an outlaw. If you do not respect the law then it can afford you no protection.

 

– Obeying statutes is voluntary i.e. with our consent. Any individual can withdraw their consent to being governed (controlled) by the statutes of a society. This might involve their exclusion from that society and the loss of benefits, but when the imposition of the liabilities outweighs the benefits, then that might be a price worth paying. The choice is and should be yours.

 

– Government is elected into ‘office’ not ‘power’ as they frequently like to claim.

 

– The ultimate constraint on the abuse of authority, (office) is the peoples ability to withdraw their consent to being governed – and at any time, not just at elections.

– It has become the habit of the legal profession to describe statutes as laws. Habits, no matter how entrenched do not however create facts. Statutes are not laws.

    ten minste het jy darem al ‘n blik skottel!

  2. Het, Nee, is JA!

  3. Netnou tref die “flaming arrow”jou “statutes”!
    Sommer lus om jou siel uit te torring op ‘n koue Saterdagmiddag.

  4. Daar is geen verskil tussen die twee nie Perdebytjie. Al die goed gebeur in sy perverse brein.

  5. @Bytjie, verskoon maar vir Johan. Dis maar moeilik as mens nie eers kan lees en feite raaksien nie en dit saam met ‘n baie siek persoonlikehid is iets wat vir almal die lewe net probeer suur maak.

  6. Blikkie,dis’n baie interessante stuk wat jy geskryf het.Tja,ignoreer maar die uit die koers uit kommentaar van party mense.

  7. Johan,waar val jy nou uit?Lyk my die koue het jou breinselle aangetas.

  8. Johnette, daardie praktyk is geskep deur jare se leuens van die wie dit pas om dit so te sien. Net soos die Fariseers Israel ondermyn en beheer het met hul duisende wette, is dit wat vandag nog gebeur deur statutte…in effek is die fariseers nog met ons.

  9. Die verskille tussen laws en statutes vind net plaas in Blikskottel se perverse brein.

  10. Johnette, jy is reg. Blikskottel maak sommer die goed op en dink dit klink goed.

  11. Blikskottel die feit is dat wette en statute bloot sinonieme is. Ek wag egter asemloos op jou geldige bronverwysing waar jy die verskil aantoon.

  12. Ek werk hard daaraan, maak geen fout nie en as ek al die inligting mooi agtermekaar het sal ek verseker dit plaas.

    Intussen:
    All Acts of Parliament are ‘statutes’ known variously as legislation, regulations or rules. They are not laws. Statutes are often incorrectly referred to as laws by ‘trained’ barristers and solicitors, but the correct interpretation would be ‘black letter law’ (meaning statutes) which are distinguishable from ‘law’ i.e. common law – and for a purpose, the purpose being that statutes and laws are different. If Acts of Parliament were laws they would be called ‘Laws of Parliament.’ Parliament knows the distinction which it quite rightly maintains. Look at any Act of Parliament and you will notice the absence of the word law – that will give you the first clue that there is a difference.
    ————————————–
    Now as we are equal before the law, parly has no choice but to not make laws, but statutes with the force of law, as in many cases these statutes prevents people from being equal befor the law. Even the RSA constitution is not law, as it does not stick to making all people equal before the law, but infact makes it legal to discriminate against certain people.
