    Regime Change 1970's StyleI first encountered the 17th century philosopher Hugo Grotius in 1978 when I briefly studied the international law and political philosophy with respect to unilateral declarations of independence UDI's and what has since become known as regime changeThere was a UDI on 11 November 1965 in Rhodesia Soon after legal cases started to emerge in which there were jurisdictional issues about what government what courts and what laws were applicable immediately after the declarationI was particularly interested in these issues because exactly ten years later on 11 November 1975 towards the end of my first year at university in Canberra Australia experienced its own version of an extra parliamentary regime change in which Malcolm Fraser replaced Gough Whitlam as Prime Minister after his dismissal by the Governor General Sir John Kerr I had dinner with Gough and a number of other students in October when he was uite bullish about his prospects of enduring the crisisMany speculated and still speculate that there was some CIA involvement in the regime change There was a precedent Two years earlier in Chile President Salvador Allende was ousted in a coup d'état staged with CIA supportThe CIA has subseuently been complicit in coups in Honduras and Venezuela amongst many othersDe Facto ControlCoups have become part of contemporary RealpolitikFollowing any coup d'état there is always a uestion with respect to the legitimacy of the new governmentTheoretically there is a distinction between de jure and de facto control of a stateHistorically the concept of de jure control reflected the reliance of the concept of sovereignty on the divine as the source of legitimate power and authority If the new government doesn't derive its power from this source it cannot be legitimate The original government remains de jureHowever as recent events such as these showed de jure control means nothing in the absence of de facto controlThere inevitably comes a point when de facto control manifests itself as de jure controlThe old government can only pretend it's in control and still legitimate for so longNow arguably a coup d'état just needs to survive to become legitimateThese arguments are influenced by the thinking of Grotius who created a learned moral calculus of war and peace in 1625 GROTIUS' MORAL CALCULUS OF WAR AND PEACEWhat is WarCicero styled war a contention by forceWhat Constitutes the Justice of WarAny thing is unjust which is repugnant to the nature of society established among rational creatures Thus for instance to deprive another of what belongs to him merely for one’s own advantage is repugnant to the law of nature Florentinus the Lawyer maintains that is impious for one man to form designs against another as nature has established a degree of kindred amongst us On this subject Seneca remarks that as all the members of the human body agree among themselves because the preservation of each conduces to the welfare of the whole so men should forbear from mutual injuries as they were born for society which cannot subsist unless all the parts of it are defended by mutual forbearance and good willNatural RightNatural right is the dictate of right reason shewing the moral turpitude or moral necessity of any act from its agreement or disagreement with a rational nature and conseuently that such an act is either forbidden or commanded by God the author of natureCivil RightThe civil right is that which is derived from the civil power The civil power is the sovereign power of the stateThe Law of NationsBut the law of nations is a extensive right deriving its authority from the consent of all or at least of many nationsWar Between Sovereign PowersNo war is considered to be lawful regular and formal except that which is begun and carried on by the sovereign power of each countryDeclarations of WarTo make a war just according to this meaning it must not only be carried on by the sovereign authority on both sides but it must also be duly and formally declared and declared in such a manner as to be known to each of the belligerent powersThe Sovereign’s SubjectsA declaration of war made against a sovereign includes not only his own subjects but all who are likely to become his associates as thereby they make themselves accessories in the warJust Causes of WarThe justifiable causes generally assigned for war are three defence indemnity and punishmentMeans of WarWars for the attainment of their objects it cannot be denied must employ force and terror as their most proper agentsAlternatives to WarThere are three methods by which independent nations may settle their disputed rights without coming to the decision of the swordThe first method is that of conferenceThe other method is that of compromise which takes place between those who have no common judgeA third method of terminating disputes without hostilities was by lotNearly related to the last named method is that of single combat a practice recommended under the idea that by the risue of two lives a uarrel might be decided which would otherwise have cost the blood of thousandsDestruction and RapineWar “will authorise mutual acts of destruction and rapine”Mutual AnnoyanceThe annoyance of an enemy either in his person or property is lawfulThis right extends not only to the power engaged in a just war and who in her hostilities confines herself within the practice established by the law of nature but each side without distinction has a right to employ the same means of annoyanceKilling an EnemyTo kill a public enemy or an enemy in war is no murderThe persons of natural born subjects who owe permanent allegiance to a hostile power may according to the law of nations be attacked or seized wherever they are foundEven women and children are freuently subject to the calamities and disasters of warThere is nothing repugnant to the law of nature in spoiling the effects of an enemy whom by the same law we are authorized to killNor does the law of nations in itself considered apart from other duties which will be mentioned hereafter make any exemption in favour of things deemed sacredConuest of LandsLands are not understood to become a lawful possession and absolute conuest from the moment they are invaded For although it is true that an army takes immediate and violent possession of the country which it has invaded yet that can only be considered as a temporary possession unaccompanied with any of the rights and conseuences alluded to in this work till it has been ratified and secured by some durable means by cession or treatyNow land will be considered as completely conuered when it is inclosed or secured by permanent fortifications so that no other state or sovereign can have free access to it without first making themselves masters of those fortificationsSurrenderAfter a place has surrendered and there is no danger to be apprehended from the prisoners there is nothing to justify the further effusion of bloodUNITED NATIONS CHARTERArticle 2 4All Members shall refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force against the territorial integrity or political independence of any state or in any other manner inconsistent with the Purposes of the United NationsArticle 2 7Nothing contained in the present Charter shall authorize the United Nations to intervene in matters which are essentially within the domestic jurisdiction of any stateArticle 39The Security Council shall determine the existence of any threat to the peace breach of the peace or act of aggression and shall make recommendations or decide what measures shall be taken in accordance with Articles 41 and 42 to maintain or restore international peace and securityArticle 51Nothing in the present Charter shall impair the inherent right of individual or collective self defence if an armed attack occurs against a Member of the United Nations until the Security Council has taken measures necessary to maintain international peace and security SYRIA 2015Grotius analysed war from the point of natural law rational laws that didn't necessarily have to derive their authority from divine law Much of his analysis is relevant to issues that confront us today in Syria on what basis can one state start a war against another must a war be based on a just cause what is a just cause must there be a formal declaration of war if there is effectively a civil war in the other nation which party is in control and has sovereign power can you attack an opposition or rebel group without compromising the sovereignty of the legitimate government do you need the consent of the sovereign government to attack a rebel group on its territory if the opposition or rebel group is in de facto control of a particular area within the territory does it become a government or state in its own right does this allow another state to attack that group without the consent of the legitimate government even if that government wishes to regain control of that territory how are these concepts of natural law affected by the United Nations Charter does the resolution of the UN Security Council about ISIS expressly or implicitly condone military action is the motive of ousting the Assad regime an act of war Does it make the intervention an unjust war insofar as it concerns the Assad regime as opposed to ISILMourning Becomes the War Mourning Becomes the Lawso now the West is at war We're at war Well of course we're at war even if we haven't formally declared it yet so that we must comply with the laws of warfare We haven't stopped being at war since the beginning of the twentieth century or was it the nineteenth centuryOne of the problems is that recently we've got used to fighting wars with technology planes drones no men on the ground except perhaps proxy combatantsWe're used to fighting the Other but importantly we've got used to fighting the Other ElsewhereDuring the First and Second World Wars we experienced war on our own territory in our own streets in our own neighbourhoods close to our own homesThe Other still experiences this Elsewhere only the Other has decided to bring our war on its territory to our neighbourhoodThe moment war emerged from the trenches and from being fought by professional combatants the real victims of a decision to declare war have been the innocents the civilians Whether or not these innocents sympathise with the combatants they don't deserve death or injury or destruction or involvement not on their territory nor on ours They don't deserve to be collateral damageWe should grieve for the innocent victims of war wherever they suffer whoever they sympathise withWe have forgotten what it means to suffer on our own territory what it means to be shot and killed by a ricocheting bullet while at a desk in our own homeThe Other who suffers Elsewhere has decided it is time to bring the experience of war the experience of suffering to our neighbourhoodThis is what war has become this is what war is like We can't hide as if innocent behind technology and proxy combatants and mere training and supply of armaments to opposition or rebel groupsWe can't continue to manufacture and supply the weapons of war and feign innocenceIf we are at war we are guilty of being at warWe have to acknowledge that if we participate in a war anywhere that war will be brought home to us onto our territory adjacent to our terraces outside our cafes and bars close to our homes no matter how secure our bordersThis is the way wars will be fought in the 21st century Not on computers alonePeople suffer values are implicitly attacked Ours as well as theirsFor whom do we grieve Only our innocents Or their innocents as wellHow little do we ask why this war is being fought at allWe are no civilised than where and how and why we fight our warsSOUNDTRACKFor Those who Danced Too Briefly to the Music of TimeJackson Browne For A DancerLyricsview spoilerLet them have their Caliphate their state their culture their economy even if it ceases to be a market for our economies Let us respect their sovereignty their borders their independence their difference Let's stand silent at the border and welcome anyone who wants to cross to our side and live and love and dance in our neighbourhood hide spoiler

    De Jure Belli ac Pacis means On the Justice of War and Peace in Greek This is a kinda weird book as far as books go but pretty worthwhile in the end The plot starts out real slow at first and the characters are distant and hard to relate to You really have to get used to Grotius' style which is a little outdated because he was a Roman and he references tons of Roman and other examples to bolster his arguments sometimes even like 20 pages of examples and by the end you're like OK I get it dude Jesus said it was ok to have wars or whatever This book is really long but I feel like in olden times people maybe just wrote longer books and you have to be patient about that because they say a lot of good stuff when you give them a chanceGrotius' main point is that there is a natural law in the world which governs even how countries have wars with each other even though while they're having the war it seems like they might not be governed by any laws at all so many people have argued that there is no such law But this natural law is not based on God or anything subjective or controversial like that although God is cool with it It's based on two things the universally observable human impulse to defend himselves when he is under attack and the eually universal fact that humans are sociable and want to live together The first part justifies why war is justified in the first place because we have a right to defend ourselves when we're attacked But the second is really cool because it limits the extent to which we can do the first part so that we can't just do whatever we want in self defense like Mr Tom Hobbes says thousands of years later but we can only defend ourself to the degree that our defense promotes sociability or maintains our society as a whole That still means we can do a lot of badass stuff in war thoughI'm not sure if I buy Grotius ultimately because it's really hard to make countries follow laws when they are in wars and there is no way to hold them to the laws or they feel existential about a particular war and conclude that they have to do whatever it takes to win it or be totally crushed like what happened to the land of Carthage in Grotius' time But for the most part I feel like Grotius is really good to read when you get tired of some of the edgier authors in this genre like Bodin and Hobbes because he has a moderate idea about what a country's self interest is and thinks that laws about contract and property can be extrapolated from within a country to govern relations among countries Especially for people who care about international law and human rights nowadays it's really important for them to justify that without relying on different subjective religions and if you think that Grotius' justifications are not that good you need to think about whether you have any better ones

    I have heard many things about Hugo Grotius and this book So I have read it But I did not find much value in it as an atheist libertarian liberal anti state anti church anti authority thinker This was a liberal book in those times but now it is just a neverending defense of the state of the right to go to war which for a social liberal thinker it is repulsive

  4. Adam says:

    I'm sure it was a decent analysis for its time first published in 1625 but beauty fades with age Useful for understanding historical origins and for understanding legal thinking of the time period I found the interplay of law and religion than a little disturbing and annoying Plus there are anachronistic statements like thison promisescontractsThe first reuisite is the use of reason; conseuently the promises of madmen idiots and children are null and void The case of minors is different for although they are not supposed to have thoroughly sound judgement any than women yet that is not a permanent defect nor sufficient of itself to invalidate their acts Book 2 ch XI5Well I suppose at least for minors that's a good thing Shame that women will never outgrow it And never mind the defenses of slaveryBut then there are gems like these War making is not one of the honest crafts Rather it is a thing so horrible that nothing but absolute necessity or true affection can make it honorable Book 2 XXV9Nor should even a permanent dwelling place be refused to foreigners driven from their own homes who are seeking a refuge But this should be on condition that they submit to the established government and to whatever other regulations are necessary to prevent tumults Book 2 II16 This seemed too on point as the Syrian refugee crisis is currently enjoying much media coverageI can't recommend it to anyone who isn't a legal scholar or who does not have a keen interest in legal history uotes from 1949 Black edition translated by Louise R Loomis
