Moral principle or law
From Textop Wiki
The laws of nature (which include many moral laws) are immutable and eternal.
The laws of nature are immutable and eternal; for injustice, ingratitude, arrogance, pride, iniquity, acception of persons, and the rest can never be made lawful. For it can never be that war shall preserve life, and peace destroy it.
Hobbes, Lev XV 38
