Every text included in the syllabus for Mosaic II created deep and moving conversations on significant topics such as government, religion, human rights, and life in general. I realized that we are just natural beings living in nature, yet there is so much “fakeness” in it. There are many injustices because of rules and regulations, and sometimes it feels like there will never be any justice. Families are split up because of immigration issues. Police officers often face no punishment for murdering or hurting civilians. Some women still make less than men for performing the same job. It forced me to think about how it feels like society is masked in abstract concepts that can get distorted when applied in real life situations. At some point, we make too many rules to follow. It seems that our nature as humans doesn't always settle well with these rules because they are not natural, we create them. I boiled this down to two laws: natural law and positive law. Both of these laws affect all of us; no matter our location, race, or age. Natural law is a system of justice that is applicable to all humans because it is derived from nature and is objectively based in reason rather than prejudice created by human society. Some natural laws are discussed in the books we read such as The Nature of Things by Lucretius. On the other hand, positive law is made by humans rather than divine nature. These laws are enacted within the government of a nation or state, which are also created by humans. Positive laws and the structures they put in the place create many injustices as it just creates artificial equality through rules and regulations. They go against nature since they are made by humans, whom can be incredibly bias, and they are usually made to benefit one person or group while punishing another. The idea of positive law is brought up in books such as A Vindication of the Rights of Woman. This exhibit showcases photographs that may illustrate how we interact with these laws in our lives or works that evoke feelings related to them.
