NEGATIVA: non-provocation: non imposition of costs against property in toto: that which others have born costs to obtain an interest in without imposing costs upon that which others have born costs to obtain an interest in.
POSITIVA: reward: the requirement that we limit our actions that affect the property-in-toto of others to those that cause productive, fully informed, warrantied, voluntary transfer, limited to productive externalities.s.
Natural Law is strictly constructed from the prohibition on the imposition of costs that would cause retaliation and thereby increase the costs, uncertainty, risk, and decrease the incentive to cooperate, resulting in a decrease in the velocity of cooperation that creates prosperity in a division of perception, cognition, knowledge, labor, and advocacy.
The attempt to mature prehistoric european, Stoic, Roman, Germanic, and British empirical, judge discovered, common law of sovereign men, into a formal logic wherein all rights are reduced to property rights.
In other words, natural law, evolved from empirical common law, as the formal category(property), logic (construction), empiricism(from observation), and science (continuous improvement) of human cooperation.
In this view, ethics, morality, economics, law, politics constitute the science of cooperation: social science. Everything else is justification, advocacy, literature, and propaganda.
