"Freedom is the absense of legislation." said the late Merrill Jenkins, Monetary Realist, inventer of the dollar bill changer, author of "Money", The Greatest Hoax On Earth, Inflation Expos'e--which is found on Amazon.com, 6 other books.

    From Socrates to Locke and Blackstone, natural law was based on morality. The problem with that was everyone has a different moral code. The U.S. Founders turned that around. Natural Law defined that which was / is (gravity, physics, fiscal law, etc.) with morality being that which was in harmony with natural law. Dr. King's reference to "moral" is in harmony with his God and the U.S. Founder's definition. His use of law here also reflects carnal man's rules of tyranny (so called law)
