INTRODUCTION The term ‘Natural Law Theories’ can be defined as the rules, concepts, and principles which are said to be originated from some supreme source other than any political or worldly authority. This theory is based on moral ideals which has universal applicability, and often used to bring certain changes in the society or to maintain stability. Natural Law is supreme and unalterable, it is not made by man; Natural Law is not a codified law and hence no penalty is been sanctioned for disobeying it; still it is considered as a higher form of law. Natural Law is also known as the Law of Reason, as being established on the ground of reasonability by which the world is governed, and also as being addressed to and perceived by the rational
He suggested that a rule can only become ‘law’ only if it has has appropriate moral dimensions. Besides, laws which are opposed to the divine plan, such as the laws of tyrants inducing to ‘idolatry’, must not be observed. This is because our duty is to obey
To a large extent I believe that is it better to live our lives spontaneously. Although spontaneity can be interpreted as impulsive, radical and not following the rules, it can also be seen as not conducting premeditated acts and not being affected by external stimuli. For the purpose of this essay, I will explore spontaneity in the Daoist scope, as well as opposing viewpoints from other Chinese philosophical schools, such as Xunzi and Daizhen. Spontaneity in Daoism is going along with the flow, and the continuation of one’s natural disposition without deliberation (DDJ 37, ZZ 1.7). The benefits of going along with the flow and living spontaneously can be demonstrated in two concepts, Wuwei and Wuyong.
Mill believed that it was essential for individuals to choose the opinions and customs that they wanted to practice instead of blindly conforming to the opinions of others. By choosing the ideals that they want to follow, individuals develop their conscience, reason, and judgement, while by blindly following others they are not exercising their liberty to choose. Mill stated that a person should feel free to pursue whatever they want as long as he/she doesn’t encroach on the rights of others. According to him, by imposing rigid guidelines of conduct a society risks to lose its progress and become stagnant. Mill gives example of China,
Just let it be, if it’s meant to be, it will happen. Cutting people out of your life doesn’t mean you hate them, it simply means you respect yourself. Not everyone is meant to stay. “The best way to predict the future is to create it.” Happiness is a state of mind. Love means understanding, not agreement.
This conflict between harming civilians, and the governing body is always right, has to be resolved. To remove this conflict there must be a change or an acceptance of, in this case, the false premise. Therefore with the aid of the second, pluralistic ignorance; whereby believing that those in authority are more informed, and everybody else for that matter, removes the need to question the validity of the premise. Here the power of authority and the social group adds its weight through a collective consciousness (Zimbardo, 2009). Therefore, the conflicted mind finds itself that tributary of least resistance via social
Magic consciousness and Life Negation are the divine inclination principle of human being. Spiritual practice made to uplift their eternal journey. It had nothing to do with materialistic worshippers. The dawn of the higher or undivided magic consciousness is only for the super-men who had the right to enter into communion soul with the supra- sensuous.

For a constructive trust to take place a detrimental reliance is also needed the maxim states that ‘Equity will not assist a volunteer showing there must be some hardship based on the reliance. As well as this, equitable fraud is also needed which is shown in the case of Yaxley v Gotts where it was stated that it would be inequitable to disregard the claimant’s expectations and the courts wanted to avert ‘injustice’. This shows constructive trusts are more fair and flexible as they allow for justice to prevail even without an
That is a great thing. Yet there “The only freedom which deserves the name, is that of pursuing our own good in our own way, so long as we do not attempt to deprive others of theirs, or impede their efforts to obtain it.” ― John Stuart Mill are laws that restrict our freedom, and there are good reasons behind that. It is not allowed to drive while being drunk, because by doing so, we become a danger to others. The principle that is used to justify the curtailment of our liberties, is rooted in the ideas of the English philosopher John Stuart Mill (1806-1873). Mill advocated for the greatest possible freedom of the individual.
