King Alfred, who reigned during the 9th century, employed his learned scribe Asser, a Welsh monk form Menevia, to translate the Molmutine Laws form the Keltic tongue into Latin, in order that he might incorporate them into his own Anglo-Saxon Code. Afterwards King Alfred rewarded Asser, in appreciation for his work, and made him Abbot of Amesbury and Bishop of Sherborne.

King Molmutius, who reigned for 40 years in the 4th century B.C. has been regarded as the lawgiver of Britain. All before Roman occupation.

Please take a good look at the following and note how appropriate and applicable most of the Molmutine Law is to today.

There are three test of civil Liberty:
equality of rights
equality of taxation
freedom to come and go

There are three causes which ruin a State:
inordinate privileges
corruption of Justice
national apathy

There are three things which cannot be solid longer than their foundations are solid:
peace
property
Law

Three things indispensable to a true union of nations:
sameness of Laws
rights
language

There are three things free for all Britons:
the forest
the unworked mine
the right of hunting wild creatures

There are three things that require the unanimous vote of the nation to effect:
deposition of the Sovereign
introduction of novelties in religion
suspension of Law

There are three civil birthrights of every Briton:
the right to go wherever he pleases
the right, wherever he is to protection for his land and from the Sovereign
the right of equal privileges and equal restrictions

There are three property birthrights for every Briton:
five (British) acres of land for a home
the right of armorial bearings
the right of suffrage in the enacting of the Laws, the male at twenty-one, the female on marriage.

There are three guarantees of Society:
security for life and limb
security of property
security of the rights of Nature

There are three things the safety of which depends on that of the others:
the sovereignty
national courage
just administration of the Laws

There are three things which every Briton may legally be compelled to attend:
the worship of God
military service
and the Courts of Law

There are three things free to every Briton or foreigner:
water from spring or well
firing from a decayed tree
a block of stone not in use

There are three orders who are exempt from bearing arms:
the bard
the judge
the graduate in Law or religion. These represent God and His Peace, and no weapons must ever be found in their hand.

There are three whose power is kingly in Law:
the Sovereign paramount over all Britain and its Isles
the Princes palatine in their princedoms
the Heads of the Clans in their Clans

There are three sacred things by which the conscience binds itself to Truth:
the name of God
the rod of him who offers up Prayers to God
the joined right hand

There are three persons who have the right to public maintenance:
the old
the babe
the foreigner who cannot speak the British tongue

It was on the authority of the great legal writers Fortescue and Coke, that the Molmutine Laws have been always regarded as the foundation and bulwark of British liberties, and have remained from this time the common unwritten or native laws of the Island, as distinguished from the Roman, the canon and other codes of foreign introduction.

Very nice! While I don't think that King Molmutius ever lived.. Geoffrey of Monmouth made up a lot of stuff, .. the ideas and legends that he created will live forever.

Real or legend, it's very apparent that people back then had way more common sense and wisdom then the fucktard lawmakers we have fucking up the planet today.

The scary thing is, when I think about it, When has it NOT been that way? Maybe during the birth of a nation things are all cool, but it don't take long for those 3 factors to rear their ugly heads.
