    Self-evident since 'natural law' in fact needs no 'enforcement.' Most laws are passed to protect or divert income streams into 'protected' pockets. Just try to repeal a bad law and see who comes out of the woodwork, then you'll know who truly benefits -- rarely is it the People at large. Regulations are generally to protect cartels and monopolists against the ingenuity and innovation of new competitors, particularly in the trades of energy, communications, agriculture, manufacturing, medicine, economics, and even religion.
