Item Description...
"Whatever Happended to Justice?" explains the Legal Model and explores America's legal heritage. This book is selling all over the world. Readers tell us it causes them to think like nothing has in years. "Whatever Happened to Justice?" shows what's gone wrong with our legal system and economy and how to fix it. It also contains lots of helpful hints for improving family relationships and for making families and classrooms run more smoothly. Discusses the difference between higher law and man-made law, and the connection between rational law and economic prosperity. "Whatever Happened to Justice?" introduces the Two Laws: 1) Do all you have agreed to do, and 2) Do not encroach on other persons or their property. Richard Maybury examines: 1) There is a higher law than any government's law. 2) The government's law often contradicts Higher Law. 3) individuals must choose which law they will support and defend. Ages 14 through Adult.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Flawed but helpful enlightenment thinking  Feb 17, 2007
Mr. Maybury does a wonderful job of explaining the differences between natural "scientific" law (also known as "common law") which can be discovered because it is universal and given by God, and resides universally in the hearts of men, and "political law" which is created by men and which almost always violates Maybury's Two Laws (which form the basis of scientific common law): 1) Do all you have agreed to do; and 2) Do not encroach upon another's person or property. Maybury then illustrates how much of the current social and even economic problems we now experience are due to the erosion of natural common law. I agree with him wholeheartedly.

I subtract one star for the following reason: Maybury is close to greater light, but loses it by embracing the enlightenment thinking that exalts the reason of man to such a degree that it shares the throne or even eclipses the acknowlegment of God. When we forget God, and cease to be grateful, our downfall is assured. I believe enlightenment thinking was our first unwitting step down as a nation. The two laws which Mr. Maybury advances are very good ones, but they are less than the two laws upon which all else hangs: 1) Love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, soul and strength; and 2) Love your neighbor as yourself.

I do not think Mr. Maybury has forgotten God, and he cannot be accused of being ungrateful - for he loves this country and recognizes our unique blessings, but his enlightenment thinking is slightly off the mark. As an example of this, I cite Mr. Maybury's correct assertion that right-to-life questions are of utmost importance - as the ultimate violation of encroachment against another's person. However, and true to his enlightenment thinking, he grounds our natural right to life in our intelligence (which is surely one of the attributes of God we share, but which is fallen). Logically, Maybury goes on to question what degree of intelligence would be required before our right to life would no longer be protected by common law! I quote from page 117 of Maybury's book: "Rights seem to be attached to intelligence. But we don't know what level of intelligence, or how to measure it. To be within the protection of the law, how smart is smart enough?" This sums up the weakness of the book to my mind. I would argue that the right to life is not grounded in our intelligence, but in our humanity created in the image of God.

Incidentally, I am a lawyer and also the mother of a child who suffers from autism. Under Maybury's reasoning, my child's right to life is more questionable than his siblings and mine because of his reduced mental capacity. If I have learned anything from my autistic son, it is that human life is valuable because it is made in God's image, even though the image is marred by our fallen state.

Still, I am grateful to Mr. Maybury for his valuable book and I intend to use it in the education of my children.
page for page, maybe one of greatest books of all time  Dec 19, 2006
I'm not kidding. I've read mises, hayek, rothbard, dawkins, and many other great writers and influential works. But page for page, with its clarity and ability to transform an average uneducated person to almost genius... The logic, peppered with awesome bits of history... This is one of the greatest books of all time. The one-two punch of Richard's Whatever happened to penny candy(about economics) with this book, is perhaps the best gift one can make to a young person just starting out in life and to an adult as well. Just awesome, all the books in the uncle eric series are must haves period. No sequence of easy to read pages can do so much to educate a human being as the uncle eric series.
Liberty Verses Democracy - Common Law Verses Political Law  Jun 12, 2005
I have enjoyed this book very much! I had entered a search engine on this books to study the differences of liberals and conservatives and purchased this book along with two other books, one from USA Today, by Victor Kamber and Bradley O'Leary, and the other on Moral Politics by George Lakoff, I then read Richard Maybury's book. I next bought Maybury's book on Ancient Rome and then ordered five more. My next book to read was this book, Whatever Happened to Justice?, apparently not the revised version. I really found convincing this book as accurate in historical truth in regards to the original political model set by Hamilton, Jefferson, Henry, Adams & etc. This is the first time I've read a critical difference between democracy and liberty and the argument for the later. While Democracy is majority rule, it is whatever the mob or majority decides, where as Liberty is based on the two eternal, multi-religious, multi-culture laws of "Do all you have agreed to do," and "Do not encroach on other persons or their property.". Now that's ecstasy for me.

The information on the differences between the old British Common Law and Political Law. Now this is significant, as Common Law is based on the above two maxims, while Political Law is on whatever the government decides, whether it be a monarchy, fascist, socialistic or democratic - the government creates the laws. Common Law, the two maxims, are historical science, laws higher than man's; laws of nature itself.

This book lucidly and simplistically explains the origins of government, that is, the thoughts and conceptions of the founding American government; Jefferson, Hamilton, Adams, the ideas of the Federalists and the Anti-Federalists, are some of the most lucid and clearest explanations I have ever read on this subject. I can't help but agree that the unregulated free trade, with limited government, employing the two multi-religious, multi-cultural maxims - two basic common laws - would bring the founding fathers ideal towards the reality of a Pythagorean harmonious exchange of prosperity and liberty. The ideas of liberty takes precedence over democracy.

And so now I'm very interested in reading Mr. Maybury's books on WWI and WWII. As I found a review on the bluestockingpress website from one reviewer named Harry Browne. Now that's got to be the Harry Browne who ran for President (Libertarian)! A person whose thoughts I happen to admire. And I have read many of his online articles on WWI and WWII in the past and was always so impressed. It appears that Richard Maybury's book has been the excellent source.
I really loved this book but...  Jul 12, 2003
I thought this book was really interesting and I felt that it presented a logical explanation of why our legal systems are the way they are. I gave it a four because I know some lawyers who told me that the premises in the book are bogus... but they could be wrong.
Number Four in the Series is Another Hit!  Dec 30, 2002
The learning just continues with this installation of Mr. Maybury's books. I learned a great deal about the economic arena in the first three and now he has taken us on a ride through the successes and failures of nations, governments and social entities that fail to follow the most basic rules of good government.

Mr. Maybury is fabulous in bringing complicated issues down to a level where average Americans and even our youth can understand them.

The sad truth about the world is that society itself is allowing young people to loose sight of the true and significant moral model of the world that they should have. Is this a direct result of a planned attack on the basic principles Mr. Maybury indicates are esential for a free people to survive or even the concept of freedom itself? Perhaps.

It is interesting to find that the absense of morality being intertwined with government has caused the downfall of so many economies in the past and contribute to the loss of the freedoms, civil liberties and individuality so cheerished by other countries and Americans for over 200 years.

It would appear that the world is sliding into a more barbaric time where we will depend only on our own devices and our own intellect to save us. But when we turn so abruptly away from the inspiration of Divine Law we actually digress in our dealings with others rather than progress.

This book should be a wake up call to all who turn away from history and the facts of life in this area. Justice made and enforced only by men or women and their own prejudices is not justice at all but mere Choas.

All we have build and all we have achieved stands on the brink of destruction brought about by our own egos and ignorance of histories lessons.

A great read and thought provoking book.
