Biblical Bill of Rights

The “Golden Rule” is the ultimate lawful authority as it describes the bounds of liberty. Should your actions overstep mine then I will be offended. One simple sentence sets the boundaries of civil society.

Anything that violates an individual's rights is wrong. No one but the individual may set the terms of agreement (compensation without coercion.) Any group right is subservient to individual rights.

The majority of people do the right thing because they don't want any trouble. People understand the concept of the Golden Rule from a human perspective. Don't hurt me and I won't hurt you.

Imagine a group of bullies forcing you to do something you do not want to do. Compare this to a group of allies helping you to do whatever you want to do. Does your government assist you?

You cannot have a healthy group unless it is made up of healthy individuals. Government oppression is governmental suicide. Anything that offends the individual offends society at large!

The only rule we need was given to us long ago. Christians understand the concept as does anyone else who is remotely human. The concept isn't just Biblical, it is human nature.

When applied properly, the rule will expose the fallacy of charging interest. Truly sovereign money is a tool created for the benefit of all people, thus no individual or group may charge interest/usury. Who has the right to profit from a national treasure? Foreign bankers? Why?

We the people create the economy based on our own needs. We create the jobs because there are things we need done. Without customers any business will fail. (Government is also a customer...)

So in this one sentence we have both law and economics. There would not be corporations, only companies. Corporations avoid liability by claiming their group rights trump the rights of individuals. Nothing trumps your rights as an individual. Luke 6:31 acknowledges our fundamental right to not be cheated.

No corporations and no interest. That would change the game wouldn't it, Mr. Blankfein?
