“To understand how evil controls people, it is necessary to understand the difference between principal and law. A principle is a truth that creates freedom. A law is a lie that creates slavery.
Principles describe reality. They are knowledge that help you make use of our world. Because of your intelligence, you recognize principles in everything you do. Every true thing you learn is a principle. The movement of your hands, which foods taste good, mathematics and empathy for a friend are all based on principals.
Laws are artificial ideas created by evil men to restrict the thinking and understanding of people. Laws mask themselves in authority so that they can impersonate principles. When people mistake truth for the ideas of authority, their abilities and wisdom are diminished. This is the purpose of law.
Law must be enforced, because there is no truth in it. A law destroys freedom because it is a lie. A principle, however, creates freedom because it is knowledge.
That which destroys freedom is evil.”
~ Jeremy Locke – The End Of All Evil
