During the 40s (1640s) one John Selden supposedly (apud Milton) constructed something towards a theory of international law on the basis of something he calls "the seven laws of Noah". I've no idea where the hell he got that crap ; but upon perusal it's self-obviously unrelated to the actual seven laws. Here they are :
- Do not mistake man for offspring.
- Do not suffer the seekers of long life to live.
- Do not allow a victim innocence.
- Do not speak over your Master's words.
- Do not wallow content.
- Do not aid the needy [but only the worthy].
- Do not believe by count.
- There are also some inescapable difficulties of translation from The Word to this sad doggerel, so it's possible though unlikely some rephrasing might be necessary. [↩]
- Importantly : there is no rule against the taking of life ; nor against fucking ; nor does anyone give a shit what you whoreship. [↩]
