Lets those that legislate not forget, it's pretty basic…

…and has been well-settled for a very, very long time:
Juris praecepta sunt haec:

Honeste vivere
Alterum non laedere
Suum cuique tribuere
Which, though I know the Vidiot and Sailor need no translation, for the non-Latin speakers:
The precepts of the law are these:

To live honorably
To hurt nobody
To render to everyone his due
Jus ex injuria non oritur
Right does not rise out of wrong.
(You, kind reader, must bear in mind that, without qualifications, while I might dare to write with geniuses, as a man tightrope walking for the very first time, I've really gotta work hard to try and keep up!)
