The Social-Contract Theory of Jean-Jacques Rousseau stipulates that, human, to all conditions, is equal, and psychological and philosophical tenets have theorized that "human is the most intelligent animated specie on earth." From these two hypotheses, we can invent two new equations: [human is intellectually equal] & [human stands on top hierarchy of any world's material and ideal existences]. However, these hypotheses are not widely accepted as absolutely true anymore; we have one individual who is more intelligent and stands on the higher hierarchy than us: Law.Drawing from the history of human existence and other human development, as well as the humanity contributions from a number of ancient and modern philosophers, I, for a long time, have concentrated on the source of law and why all of us need to be placed in the hierarchy below the law.
You do not need to take protracted time to go deep into the history of law or other humanity studies to find out the one and absolute source of law, but I can tell now that "the repeated bad phenomenon is world's first and absolute source of law.".Imagine where our governing law was derived from? Repeated bad act is the source of world's law. Cambodia has never had "anti-domestic violence law", but seeing domestic violence (violence committed within one family) is more than just the within-the-family's or family's internal and sovereign affairs, Cambodia now has put anti-domestic violence law into generalized implementation.
Surprisingly, now I have the second wonder; why we need to be categorized into lower hierarchy than just our invented idealism: the law. We can not stand on the higher hierarchy than the law, because law means to "never again [prevent the culprit from committing the same or other act, considered as crime and to prevent the malicious subject element [intention to commit bad deed]"..Lay Vicheka is a translator for the most celebrated translation agency in the Kingdom of Cambodia, Pyramid Translation Co.
