The Nuremberg Principle: It applies to crimes large and small

from ZAP

the-nuremburg-principal-icon-150x150The Nuremberg Trials established that . . .

  • Legislation is not the same as law
  • Legislation must be moral to be lawful
  • “Government” actions that violate moral rules are criminal

This applies not only to the large crimes committed by villains like the Nazis, but also to the smaller crimes committed by your own “government.” 

Whenever “the government” threatens or initiates force against innocent people, it violates the moral law, no matter what the legislative “law” may say. To show empathy for the victims of this criminality, start applying the Nuremberg Principle where you live.
