Human Law Is Law Only By Virtue Of Its Accordance With Right Reason

‎Human law is law only by virtue of its accordance with right reason, and thus it is manifest that it flows from the eternal law. And in so far as it deviates from right reason it is called an unjust law; in such case it is no law at all, but rather a species of violence. - Saint Thomas Aquinas
