There is a great need to assess how one conducts oneself in society in accordance with the prevailing laws of a State.
A State is a house of shelter for the inhabitants that is the population of the country.
Just as in our individual houses that we turn into homes that provide us with comfort and security to live in with the incomes that we manage to generate for ourselves as family members, so also is society of the State in which the State itself is to be viewed as the House of Shelter for all.
A perfect home as a house of shelter requires rules and a constitution of how the family functions within the house as a home. The State is likewise also a House that formulates the society with rights and duties of members of the society to live in a manner that is harmonious to the maintenance of the State as a coherent establishment that functions with the minimum of disturbances able to cope with nuances that threaten the stability of the society that it houses.
There are two conflicting views on how the State should function. These are classified under Structural laws and Political laws.
Under democracy the politics dictate that the government of the State change from time to time and so the laws change on a daily basis as the Ruling Party of the Parliament conduct their horsetrading to establish the way forward for the State. This philosophy works best under an unwritten Constitution such as we have in the United Kingdom where the coherence of the State is maintained in the framework of democratic structures. It generates political laws for people to live under.
On the other hand however under People's Democracy or even the Monarchial dictatatorship or government in which the Prime Minister has sole responsibility for the day to day functioning of the State, a written Constitution may be established so that the decisions of the government is adjudicated upon by the Courts as independent arbiters of what laws are that are enacted by the government. It makes for Structural laws for people to live under. For this the Court's need to be perfectly independent of the government. In the fluid situation of an unwritten Constitution the government and the Courts are unable to determine what the bases of the laws are and so we regard these laws as Political laws.
My view is that Structural laws on the basis of a Written Constitution are superior for the maintainance of coherence and harmony in the State as it is within the family, so that waywardness is not tolerated in drive of the government for political expediency. Political law is putting the cart before the horse, and causes disharmony in the population of the society. There has to be someone in charge, to make the laws of a country. The Constitution provides the framework for laws to be enacted and this should be sacrosant. The Courts are then the best means of ensuring that the Constitution written for people to abide by are followed by the population and the government alike. The family is likewise under the authority of one parent when one has built up a home as a house of shelter, but the common framework for the family is also based on the Constitution of how a family is run.
Further, it is important to consider that under the political laws that we have in the United Kingdom, peoples civil rights change from day to day according to the whims of the Executive and there is no scope for seeking redress cost-effectively for the Courts are effectively under the jurisdiction of the Executive who may change the laws at any time even in between Parliamentary elections. Therefore personal grievances of injustices in accordance with individual perceptions that are perhaps based on religious considerations have no scope for seeking legal redress under political laws. Religious laws come into conflict with the political laws of the State. The population are therefore slaves.
This is exacerbated under Monarchial system of government in what we know as Constitutional Monarchy where all institutions of the State are under Executive Control and there is no room for human creativity and entrepreneurship, the greatest of all evils of a Monarchial dictatorship; whereas under a written constitution every citizen knows the limits of the ethos and principles of the State that outline the implementation of his and her libertarian spirit to abide by religious convictions.
The people have convictions and needs that are essential, but it is acknowledged that the State has the overriding power to turn the people into what the State requires the people to be like. It is a two-way process and democracy is the only way of arriving at a solution of what the ideal laws of a State should be within the restrictions of the environmental imperatives. The bigger the goverment the more the population are slaves and robotic machinery parts in a State unable to express themselves in creativity and entrepreneurship, restricted by the government on what they can do or cannot do. This is granted as we all need to survive with as much liberty as is possible; however, under political laws the ordinary citizen is unable to function if democracy itself is restricted. If a State does not have a written constitution that should be amended for new laws are enacted, there are no Structural laws only Political laws in the State.
