Hey, even the plant world is more complex than just The Law of the Jungle.


Please explain the complexities and nuances of the plant world. What kind of Laws do plants prefer?

Explain how plants have arrived at some consensus regarding the Laws that they obey.


  

Governments will always devise ways to deprive an honest man of his money or property, and claim that it's legal.

Plants are often cooperative with other species of plants. Symbiotic relationships are common.

That's way far above the "Law of the Jungle".

Cooperative relationships don't need laws. Plants and animals often have cooperative or symbiotic relationships too. People interacted cooperatively long before laws were even thought of.

What about it chief? I had the feeling you thought you were pounding it up my ass with a splintered wooden mallet there? Grin

Do you know anything about the natural world, or are you as ignorant as the Lizard?

Man is an animal, and will usually behave like one in the absence of Law.

Chief, I'm just picking apart your mostly almost good post, just for fun.
Humans are animals in the biological sense, but even non-human animals are often cooperative within family groups or tribes.

In the absence of law, humans start creating law. They originally built on the rules that animals use in order to live cooperatively in family groups or tribes. Even Chimps drive barbarians out of the tribe.

This hasn't been popular at all. I'm disappointed, because I was sure it would go viral! Oh well.

What I would like to discuss is the principle that the people of a country have a right to create and control a government and to have it serve them by protecting their Rights and lives and property from barbarians....

That is the utmost essence of the philosophy of our Law.

I like that sort of stuff. Real life practical philosophy. I guess nobody else does. Or perhaps they just can't understand it.
