Just like the home page, the Philosophy  pages on Perjury, forswear, forsworn and swear. plus some other very important words required for a minimal understanding of the greatest problems Philosophy has investigated. A list of single lines showing how our greatest writers have used the terms. Guess the origin of each line?
Shakespeare on Perjury, forswear, forsworn and swear.
Law, The crime of wilfully uttering a false statement or testimony in reference to a matter material to the issue involved, while under an oath or affirmation to tell the truth, administered by a competent authority; the wilful utterance of false evidence while on oath. OED.

A Philosophy of Law. Has the meaning of justice been forgotten? Are the law courts and organs of complaints so steeped in sets of rules as to prevent them from  recognising & applying justice, or does this belie an agenda?  Bureaucracy combines in  large bodies, organisations, and institutions, found predominantly in democracies, (less in dictatorships, which  should not attract negatively characterised associations to exclude  paternal single rulers and monarchies) suffer from the consequence of agenda and template driven procedures. A distanced view of such  methodologies reveals invidious practices that undermine democracy to the point of it’s being a worse system  than centralised management in paternal single or small cerebral groupings.
The combined tendencies of a large employed  workforce, being more disinterested than smaller groupings creates a  dependency on sets of rule structured procedures, stipulating increasingly the maxim, don’t think, follow these rules.  Complaint  procedure rules, like those in court become a pre-determining template that functions like a die through which particulars are forced and extruded where truth, accurate correspondence with reality and other similar concepts suffer. Taking a topological view of the sociological landscape reveals groups of bodies where their well defined frames of reference work to the combining effect of mutual exclusion that gives rise to the general consequences that one body is not empowered to handle problems, and they get shunted around so the complainant gives up in frustration. If he does end up with the relevant institution, he then faces the same problem on a diminished scale,  being his particulars are forced through the template to either qualify or not depending on the person controlling the dialogue. Every  profound  principle at the heart of a small example gets buried under the weight of the template, indifference and a commercial decision. Of course commercial decisions have invariably nothing to do with truth,  honour, integrity or sprit of any law .
FLEXIBLE  application of rules requires noblesse oblige, and unqualified compassion for understanding truth and usually a single cortex capable of balanced judgement devoid of particular vested  interest.
Here are a few cases, that support the views expressed throughout their pages that the most important place in our institutions is suffering a want of proper reasoning, and reaches conclusions based on unjust agendas declared or otherwise, fallacies of reasoning, and a compliance with so many rules as to obscure the proper outcome of justice as we know it to be in our instincts and hearts.
The inability to separate what a company, or person IS from what they POSSESS, in the determination of the individual’s  real worth is a singular basis for obscuring judgement of mediocrity in attributes among some wealthier and more powerful, many of whom are wonderful, and many of whom are not. Any person in a position of authority, unable to apologise for errors of conduct, and or listen to reasoned argument without permitting their ‘ blood their safer guides to rule,’ is in my view not worthy of such position, equally, any person unable to answer a simple direct question without answering a different one, should not hold a public office.

Shakespeare on Law and Logic.
he hath resisted law, And therefore law shall scorn him further trial Than the severity of the public power,
Seneca cannot be too heavy, nor Plautus too light. For the law of writ and the liberty, these are the only men.
Is it a lawful trade? POMPEY. If the law would allow it, sir. ESCALUS. But the law will not allow it,
how, how, choplogic? What is this? 'Proud'- and 'I thank you'- and 'I thank you not'- And yet 'not proud'?
Balk logic with acquaintance that you have, And practise rhetoric in your common talk;
A want of equity, unfairness.
