PRINCIPLES OF JUDGMENT AND ONUS
There are some sophisticated ideas in the process of conducting legal and judicial considerations. Some of those include onus of proof, which in civil process, is on the balance of probability and the burden of proof is beyond a reasonable doubt in criminal matters. There are rules of special onus. Sometimes the onus reverses. All of these topics are dealt with in our section Principles of judgment and onus Other relevant considerations include, for example presumption of innocence, the principle that the law is not concerned with trifles, and presumptions that transactions in commerce are intended to the commercial, and in
domestic relationships are domestic. Also that people who committed crimes in the past are likely to have committed them again this time, if the evidence so suggests. Equally, that evidence of past crimes produces prejudice on a decision as to whether this particular crime has been committed. It’s a very interesting dealing, this topic.

BUSINESS PRINCIPLES AND PHILOSOPHIES IN THE LAW
The law is based on genuine personal and community values and principles. Concepts of consumer values, people’s rights and sincere trading and supply are foundation concepts in the system. So are security of business and fair business profit, which are acknowledged concepts in legal systems. Businesses pay wages from their gross profit and people rely on viable businesses and live on the revenues from those viable businesses. Look at our section on business principles and philosophies and come to understand the community values and worthwhile national and international values built into the legal system. The impact of the community values is strong in the operation of a legal system. A legal system for a community reflects the values of that community, and the vast majority of communities worldwide are hard-working, honest, diligent and moral. Although not always successful, legal systems attempt to reflect those values and make the determinations and operation of the system consistent with community values. These include viable business, security, reward for effort and incentive.
INTERNATIONAL HUMAN RIGHTS
With the domestic civilization of society from its barbaric origins [which some rose colored modern thinking has tried to hide or ignore] real values for humans has emerged as strong primary values in our societies. Values of ancient times and medieval times so much permeate the undercurrent of our thinking in society. We want to think of ourselves as modern and civilized. But we cannot escape our antecedents. In International
human rights, we explore these issues, the modern perspective and the impact of the old. We deal with the inconsistency of current strong political influences and also consider the impact of the slow developing and poor communities. As with much of our content, it’s quite interesting. Our attempt to pretend the past did not happen and, we are in the wonderfully modern world we like to think we are in, is questionable. A world of abundance and provision, we wish. Of course, the real world is never far away.
CONFLICT OF LAWS
Our societies grew from tribes and villages. As they expanded and grew more powerful, issues of power, territoriality, control and sovereignty grew. This growth was organic and ongoing. With time, the power of a centralized sovereign expanded and took a strong position in the societies. Now, sovereignty is the norm. In conflict of laws, we explore inconsistency between the development of legal principles and regulation in various sovereign states. The United Nations, to some extent, has unified these principles, but also, it is common for sovereign states to simply step around the United Nations conventions and do whatever they like within their sovereign power. The legal structures and principles having grown in these discrete local communities, are not a unified international perspective and vary from sovereign state to sovereign state. Hence, the need to explore conflict of laws.
