The root of today's Common Law is found in Babylonian Common Law, codified most extensively by Hammurabi, the sixth king of Babylon Dynasty in c. 1750 B.C. Hammurabi states in his codex preamble that he was sent by none other than the Anunnaki god Marduk to rule over men: "When Marduk sent me to rule over men, to give the protection of right to the land, I did right and righteousness in..., and brought about the well-being of the oppressed."
If you have any doubt about the practice of Babylonian law in the form of present-day International Law, take a look at this press release published April 29, 2014 announcing a gift from the Government of the Republic of Iraq to the "principle judicial organ of the United Nations, the International Court of Justice at the Hague."
that the Code constitutes "one of the earliest known legal codes [and that], despite having been produced so long ago, [it] had] nonetheless and undeniably wielded an enduring and lasting influence on legal systems across the globe”.
In case you forgot, or didn't realize, the world is governed by International Law, also known by other terms such as Law of the Sea, Admiralty Law, Commercial Law, Corporate Law and Banking Law, all facilitated by Common Law (written law). As you see from the chart below, Commercial Law/Corporate Law and Common Law (written law) are both forms of Private Law.
The first written legal code was authored by King Urukagina, ruler of Lagash, just east of modern day Ash Shatrah, Iraq. While actual texts have not been located, references to it reveal it to be a government reform document dating to the 24th century B.C. Its purpose appears to be government reform to curb the excesses of the elite class.
Our earliest Common Law legal text still in existence is written in the Sumerian Language on cuneiform tablets found at the Temple of Eshnunna in modern day Tell Asmar northeast of Baghdad dating back to c. 2100 BC-2050 BC. Supposedly written by King Ur-Nammu himself, the Code of Ur-Nammu assumes an understanding that law descends from the gods. It presents a two-class social structure, the free and the enslaved, and introduces the concept of equity in the land along with monthly temple fees.
We are ready to return to our tribal roots. We reject institutionalized control mechanisms as archaic, clumsy, and to be blunt, outright criminal.
