5 Common Law

Common Law is based on the natural law or god’s law. So if a country (like Quebec) claims that it is not ruled by common law – how can they abandon god’s law?

Today there is the Common Law and there are rules, regulations, statutes; common law is interested in justness, while statutes are interested in money.
Statutes are meant to control government members – elected officials and employees (functionaries).

A common law crime needs an injured party – a state or a corporation cannot be injured because they are not a person in the sense of a living being – they are property. Therefore corporations cannot sue individuals.

For every injury there needs to be a remedy; a remedy fixes the problem, allows the perpetrator to come back into the community.

A court of record is a common law court.
