The Law & Its Cycle


Modern people tend to know something of the minutia of law and of legal actions, but they generally know nothing of law’s origins. As it happens, when the history and philosophy of law are mixed with general history and psychology, a very interesting pattern emerges. It’s a shame that this cycle of law is not taught, because it points to our place in the cycle and to a very predictable outcome. The same things that drove this cycle in the past are driving it now, and, barring any fundamental changes, the modern outcome will be about the same.



In addition to covering the repeating cycle of law in depth, this issue explains Dunbar’s Limit, the common law and sovereign law.
