Reader comments about this quote:
"the laws of nature and of nature's God" ((Declaration of Independence) at times referenced as natural law) reign supreme, no matter man's compliance or rejection thereof. Keynesian economics is an excellent example of man's organized rejection of natural law (ultimately resulting in economic destruction, pain and integrity loss). Applied theocratic socialism is another prime example of ultimate chaos and destruction when confronted with natural law's supremacy. Personal action (individually or in concert) is criminal when it violates natural law  no matter carnal man's perceptions or practices.
