Universal Laws (6) Assault

The second universal law is assault.

Hitting or striking another person without their permission is a crime. Kicking, biting head-butting and punching are different forms of assault.

You shall not assault another person
Assault can also involve a variety of weapons.

  • Guns;
  • Knives;
  • An out-of-control car that hits another person.
  • A stone picked up from the side of the road and thrown deliberately at another person;
  • Two men are fighting and thy crash into an innocent bystander, they are both guilty of assault.

However, if the bystander has come closer to watch the fight; they are mostly responsible for their own fate.

Rape is a particularly serious form of assault, as in addition to the physical, harm, it causes spiritual and emotional harm.
