    All law is contingent and contextual, whether it be quantum, common or sacred. Former UK Supreme Court Justice (Lord) Jonathan Sumption addressed the historical currency of questions of constitutional law most adequately in his BBC Reith lectures last year ~

    As I understand it, any genuinely coherent thinking will be some unique variant of symbolic logic; the general object being to arrive at a satisfactory formula or explanation of ideas or events that may be suitably applicable to specific situations. However, constructive movement can sometimes be advanced in unexpected, quite unanticipated ways. Even by so simple a corrective as attending precisely to grammar. This was brilliantly illustrated by another prominent UK (but political) figure, Sir Malcolm Rifkind in an excellent IQ squared debate about 20 months ago held in London, entitled China: Friend or Foe? ~ in which he made a most lucid observation, about the critical distinction between the lofty principle of the Rule of Law, and the significantly debased notion of “rule by law” & its abysmal consequences.

    It is precisely the proliferating abuse of this fundamental principle that perpetuates so many problems around our finite globe.

    If the United States is/are to adequately and proactively face the present ecosystemic (world) crisis ~ a nightmare of cumulative error that is a direct result of all the moral failures that have accrued ever since the earliest days of European settler colonialism in the Americas ~ then “which” Rule of Law prevails will obviously be the basis of all viable foundations of future governance both at home and abroad; especially given the colossal influence and momentum of US cultural continuity.

    The focus will be on China, no doubt about that. How China is accommodated therefore &/or restrained (ie, reconceptualised…) both within and without its political-economic boundaries, will determine the future dynamics of all Earthly life. The example(s) set by the USA will thus be vitally significant and most probably, critical.

    The cosmic health of our Sacred Biosphere must be the supreme priority of all sentient, thinking beings ~ whether this be expressed in Pinyin Mandarin or Universal English…
