The earliest recorded form of law comes with the Code of Hammarabi. During this time, magic and what we would call superstition had a large bearing on society. Polytheism ruled and the word on the street was 'eye for an eye'
The next major step for Global law were the Hebrews, with the 10 commandments as the baseline. The idea of Monotheism and prophets ruled the land. Eye for an eye was still existent, but a sort of accountability to oneself arose.
Next was Rome, and it's great longest ruling empire of the age. 900 years of power lead to a vast change and evolution. At the start, Caesar Augustus set about the 12-code law, and philosophy and spiritual evolution seemed to take a drastic jump. Large bodies of thinkers were thrown into rough times, and the result is the basis of today?s laws and legal system.
Then comes English law. Democracy and voting, the idea of human rights and personal power, centralized government, war and taxes ruled the people
And now, American law, current day terrorism and the war on drugs.. Let us not even get involved into International laws, domestic is enough for even the most active scholar to take on.
Laws own the land, and the beginning of time shows this. What are your thoughts on law and spirituality and philosophy, and how they have evolved over the ages, and how they effect us today.
