The Law of Conscience as applied to governing the affairs and actions of the individual, and the affairs between individuals. Its essence is the golden rule. Its science is the science of living honestly with one’s self and with other individuals. It is the coalescing of the two great powers bestowed upon man by his creator – the power to reason and the power of the spirit, working together in harmony with the laws of God and nature. It is loyalty-to-self, loyalty-to-truth, as revealed to each individual through his conscience. Being the Law of Conscience, it cannot be written – it can only be written about. All that can be written about the Common Law is how it manifests itself through the individual who is loyal to self – loyal to his conscience. It is frequently said that Common Law is custom and usage from immemorial antiquity, that Common Law is the judgments and decrees of courts recognizing these usages and customs, that Common Law is the statutory and case law background of England and the American Colonies before the American Revolution – and now, our courts tell us that there is such a thing as “specialized federal common law,” or just “federal common law.” None of these are Common Law in its true sense and meaning. At best, they are manifestations of individual decisions and actions in particular situations, pursuant to conscience. Al worst, they are manifestations of decisions and actions in situations wherein reason, spirit, and conscience of the individuals involved were stifled or suspended. To say otherwise is to lose or change the important thing – the true meaning of Common Law.
