More on different types of law

In chatting with my fellow Catallarchist Brian, he stated that my post on Legislation vs. Common Law was not completely accurate, and suggests that perhaps a more precise classification for what I was referring to would have been Statuatory law vs. Customary law. [Damnit Brian, I'm a doctor, not a lawyer!] He states that legislation is a part of common law, not something completely distinct from it, and is used to codify and simplify customary law.

My reasoning for favoring customary law is that, on the surface, it has much less tendency for tyranny as it is not arbitrary like statuatory law is. Further, it is difficult to see how customary law would result in the prosecution of victimless 'crimes'.

As one of the reasons for starting this blog was in order to learn as much as it was anything else, any further input and education from readers is welcomed.
