And exactly how has that line of thinking worked for anyone?
Making the word of God of none effect through your tradition, which ye have delivered: and many such like things do ye. ~ Mark 7:13
Common Law, even as you have so eloquently described, derives from "custom and usage, traditions" is nothing but the operating rules of an environment defined by Man's reason in whatever capacity he is operating.
For example: On land, an Elephant utilizes the Law of Nature as the basis for its "common law"; to follow the same "common law" within the environment of the water causes the elephant to drown even though the Law of Nature never changed. The elephant can not hold onto its "common law" when the environment changes into one of water, it is FAULTY tradition.
Same thing with you just posted, for in the "real world," man has developed some sort of "common law" NOT based on the Law of Nature, but upon "custom and usage, and traditions" of Man and this "common law" does not translate over into other environments, much like the Elephant's common law.
The "real world" and the "fiction" are just environments in which man operates; each environment has its own set of "rules for this environment," or "common law," defined my the reason of Man and Man alone: fulfilling the wildest of Satan's dreams : fracturing all into confusion, and man does it all himself.
People can keep claiming they don't have to do this and that, and they are right. They can keep ignoring the problem by burrowing their head into the sand and HOPE someone else does it for them, or they can pull their head from their hole, clear the sand from their ears, roll up their sleeves and start doing what is necessary; not for them-self, but for everyone and everything EXCEPT them-self.
One may wish to act like an ostrich, but in this current public environment of promoting liberal homosexuality, is one sure one wants their ass hanging in the breeze like that?
People love to reject that part of the Law they with which they do not agree, but they are no longer dealing with some mere "fiction," this the operation of God's Law here on Earth manifest through the State "fiction" and if one "rejects part of the Law, one rejects the whole of the Law" and thus is in insurrection and rebellion against God Almighty of which is manifest here on Earth via insurrection and rebellion against the State "fiction" and now one is "sold into slavery" (monetized debt obligation) to account for the Sin of REJECTION of what God Almighty ordained under Romans 13.
We are seeking to unify the Law on Earth in order to Reconcile man's law with God's Law to create the more perfect union and manifest the Kingdom of Heaven here on Earth and that State apparatus or "fiction" was DESIGNED to be NEUTRAL and if the people can get on the same damn page, we can change our current reality into that which we all wish; RIGHT NOW, those who do not have the people's best interests at heart are in control because they operate COLLECTIVELY in order they profit and gain power INDIVIDUALLY at the expense of the people's futures collectively and individually and one consents when one rejects that "fiction" and "those consenting and those perpetrating are embraced in the same punishment," in this case: a slow, yet ever speeding up, painful decent into hell here on Earth.
And the current operators HOPE and PRAY people keeping thinking the "fiction" does not exist, thus the people will choose to keep their heads in the sand.
It makes fucking them all that easier.
We are called to be architects of the future, not its victims;
Resistance is futile.
If you think you can, you are correct.
If you think you can't, you are correct.
