Person And The Subject Of the Law (Legal Fiction)

“If I’m curt with you it’s because time is a factor. I think fast, I talk fast and I need you guys to act fast if you wanna get out of this.”

Volodymyr Machuskyy Sr.

Law as an idea is self-sufficient and can exist indefinitely without a person, but the exercise of law without persons is impossible and hence, the law as a legislation can not be a law for no one.

A person may also exist without a Law as a separate entity, but in the case of the existence of only one person, the legislation is nonsense.

At the same time, each person has a law in himself and the movement of law is due to the interpenetration of a law in person and the person in law. The law born inside a person comes out and is combined with the law as an idea.

Since Economics Became a Religion I Don’t Feel at Home in This World Anymore

“It’s a shame to be rich in a poor country, and it’s a shame to be poor in a rich country”

Volodymyr Machuskyy Sr.

The economic interpretation of the justice is a consequence of the socialization of capitalism and an attempt to justify a constant increase in wealth even without economic growth.

Hence the need arises to replace the concept of the law as a justice for the economic concept of the justice. If the concept of the law as a justice is a form of distinguishing between good and evil, then the economic concept of the justice is an assessment of the efficiency of labor and business activity in general.

At the same time, the increasing financialization of the economy, as well as the forced necessity of the overwhelming majority of people to engage in work that is disgusting to people, is shyly hushed up.

Beyond Law and Order

“The man has now become like one of us, knowing good and evil.”

Volodymyr Machuskyy Sr.

The history of civilization in a certain legal sense is a continuous struggle of a person for her personal rights.

This struggle contains many intermediate stages: the recognition of property rights, the recognition of religious rights, the recognition of racial and social equality in the context of the ongoing battles for justice and freedom.

Legal form of economic activity

The Law has no material form. The Law exists only in our imagination and our thinking, as well. Legal regulation (laws and court decisions), on the contrary, exist in material form only.

Volodymyr Machuskyy Sr.

Economic activity necessarily has an economic content. Due to legal regulation, any economic activity takes on a legal form. Thus, in some cases, economic activity is economic by content and legal by form.

The legal form of economic activity is a legal relationship. Legal regulation and legal relations are determined by the interrelation. Legal regulation as a special, has its origin in the general – the law, and seeks to achieve a separate – the specification of the rights and obligations of the subjects of law (participants in the relationship).

The legal relationship as special for the subjects of law, having its source separate – the rights and obligations of the subjects of law, seeks to achieve generality – the objectification of the rights and obligations of the subjects of law (participants in the relationship).

The withering away of the law and order and the advent of the harmony of law’ era (Utopia)

“The first thing we do, let’s kill all the lawyers”. William Shakespeare’s Henry VI, Part 2, Act IV, Scene 2.

Volodymyr Machuskyy Sr.

The law and order in context of movement of law is the Law’s order – an awareness form of being of Law. Unconscious form of existence of law is the legal order or the law and order in the usual sense. In essence, this law and order or legal order is a surrogate of real Law’s order.

The Law’s order cannot be forced. The Law’s order is possible through the law consciousness. The deformation of the law consciousness leads to the offense. So the Law’s order disappears and there is No Law that falls under the legal order.

Intellectual Vanity and Movement of Law

Vanity Fair is an English novel by William Makepeace Thackeray

Volodymyr Machuskyy Sr.

Intellectual vanity denies the possibility of comprehending reality, proclaims the limitations of knowledge and creates a scientific fallacy – a phanomen of law, which is doomed to unattainability and otherworldly existence.

Similarly, the starry sky for an inexperienced observer seems frozen, and the stars themselves are motionless, but the observer can not stop the movement of the stars.

Thereby, the рhanomen of law cannot stop the movement of law as a nomen – eternally moving, real and reasonably real.

Shaky phenomenology sometimes leads to a denial of the effectiveness of law itself and gives grounds for proclaiming the thesis of a crisis of legal thought. Hence, there are attempts leveling the Law to an ordinary instrument of economics.

The Law Also Rises: Becoming

Volodymyr Machuskyy Sr.

The scientific knowledge of law aims at two interconnected things: a) obtaining a true knowledge of law and b) an identification of law’ patterns in all its manifestations.

Traditional doctrinal legal understanding is limited by the categorical apparatus and problems of epistemological nature.

On the one hand, there is a long-standing hopeless controversy about the choice between the rule of law or judicial discretion.

On the other hand, there is an endless searching of criteria for the optimal structuring of law by branches of law.

The Searchers of the Lost Law: The Beginning

The Searchers of the Lost Law: The Beginning

Volodymyr Machuskyy Sr.

Primitive physical being absorbed by society and has no self-interest. Realizing different from other such creature becomes a Person, but at first only in the social and psychological sense. In a legal sense, such a person is only an object.

The ability of a person to become the subject of the Law due to the development of the Person and is connected with awareness of the Law within yourself.

Standing out from the herd, a primitive creature realized itself as a person. A person necessarily has his own interests. Realization of the interests is possible only through subjective rights.

The Law as an idea is a self-sufficient and can exist indefinitely without a person but the exercise of the Law without the Person is an impossible.

Hence, the Law as legal regulation can not be the Law for no one.

A Farewell to Law

In a broad sense, the law is about relations between people in the context of freedom and justice.

Starting in a winter and ending in a summer, this semester gave me the opportunity to communicate with smart young people – students of international economics and management of business organizations.

As there are no identical students, so there are no identical semesters. Students and the atmosphere of learning determines the essence of the semester.

This semester reigned an atmosphere of mutual respect, mutual understanding, tolerance and creative freedom.

In my opinion, there was a mutual enrichment of the knowledge of both students and the teacher.

Saying goodbye to you today (The Long Goodbye) I will remember your wonderful practices in solving legal problems, smart and deep essays, and a friendly attitude towards your teacher.

You know, I’m always in touch)

I wish you success, freedom and justice!
