This is perhaps the best question I have had the pleasure of answering since I began answering questions on Wikianswers. All just laws conform with nature. Gravity is a law and it conforms with nature. The laws that any given society will legislate are not all natural laws, far too many are positive laws (man made laws) and can become part of the problem they were intended to handle. Positive laws are not just laws, no matter how just they may appear. By the virtue of being a man made law as opposed to a discovered law is what makes these laws unjust. All laws discovered to be natural laws are just laws because they seek to protect the rights of the individual. It is that simple really. Murder is an abrogation and derogation of someones rights, there fore murder is wrong. Theft is an abrogation and derogation of someones rights and thus it is wrong. Prohibition of alcohol or prostitution are not just laws because they do not seek to protect the rights of the individual and quite clearly ignore certain rights in order to claim any legitimacy. Laws that attempt to prevent natural human behavior are unjust laws. Most people in the United States today would agree that any attempt to legislate against dancing would be an unjust law. In spite of that, there are multitudes of laws that function in the very same way that an anti-dancing law would and blatantly disregard the rights of the people.
