The Nuremberg Trials:
"Charter of the International Military Tribunal",
"Charter of the International Military Tribunal
August 8, 1945 ...
The fact that the defendant acted pursuant to
order of his Government or of a superior shall
not free him from responsibility, but may be
considered in mitigation of punishment if the
Tribunal determine that justice so requires."

Supreme Court of Canada in R. v. Perka, supra, at p.248,
as quoted by Honourable Judge G. M. Meagher in
Health Canada v. Truehope Court Case, 2006,
Full written decision, p.11:
"... a liberal and humane criminal law
cannot hold people to the strict obedience of laws in
emergency situations where normal human instincts,
whether of self-preservation or of ultruism,
overwhelmingly impel disobedience."

US Declaration of Independence:
"Declaration of Independence: A Transcription",
"... When in the Course of human events,
it becomes necessary for one people to
dissolve the political bands which have
connected them with another, ...,
a decent respect to the opinions of mankind
requires that they should declare the causes
which impel them to the separation. ..."
