It’s better to belong to a cult of truth, sovereignty, reciprocity, duty, and markets in everything, than (a) to be wrong, (b) to be a sophist (c) be dedicated to any OTHER cult.

Western law is a cult. hence why Americans treat the constitution (of natural law) as sacred. They just couldn’t defend it as such.

The law is a cult, and that is its virtue.

I’m thoroughly thrilled to institutionalize that cult.

You think calling natural law fundamentalism a cult is an insult?

It’s a recognition of SUCCESS.
(a) a moral license for violence…
(b) a set of demands,
(c) a plan of transition
(d) a threat of sufficient concern that the other parties acquiesce.

But better – a scientific religion of intergenerational transmission.
