The reason we need a license to do things that were lawful under common law.

When you hear or read of the word "use" in terms of law, then the most famous act or statute concerning uses was the Statute of Henry VIII in 1535 concerning uses and wills: See: uk_act_1535_uses_wills.pdf

The word "use" has a long provenance and history and comes from the Latin "Usus" - USUS (Latin) - "Use (of Land), Benefit (of Land), Practice, Skill, Experience, Custom, Intercourse, Need, Necessity, Service".
Yet what we have discussed over recent weeks is how property, rights and uses were "enclosed" by militia leaders, nobles and false clergy acting as nothing more than pirates, to then create codes of law such as Admiralty Laws which are nothing more than pirate laws for their own benefit. Thus, we spoke of Commerce being made both a crime and indeed a sin.
What then is a word where there is evidence of alleged acts making "commerce" or an equivalent word unlawful, immoral or a sin?

The hidden meaning of Usury
We find the word in plain sight- with Usury. Contrary to the narrow definition claimed for the word, Usury is the derivative of Use. That is, if a Use is a Trust, then Usury is the Estate, or the Fund, or the Money or the Trade.

USURAE (Latin) - "Benefit of Use, Enjoyment, Rent, Wage, Salary, Simus (Interest), Income, Estate, Commerce"
Therefore, when we speak of usury we are speaking of a deliberate plan to enclose commerce and trade - once a right of people, to control the world through commerce.

Contrary to the claim that usury laws were first formed in the 13th C, it appears the first real definitions against Usury were as late as the 16C and the Papal Bull "Inter Multiplices" by Leo X on 4 May 1515 in the creation of the "pawn shops" for faithful.
Thus in the 16th Century while Catholic Countries were making Commerce as Usury a "sin", the concept of commerce as a right was front and center in the Protestant "work ethic".
It wasn't then until the 18C - after some convenient fires destroyed ancient statutes in England that we see Commerce cease to be the right of the noble classes and become a sin in Protestant law. How? By equating commerce to war, to conflict and therefore immoral and a crime and a sin.
Therefore, to the revised Protestant world of commerce- "all business is warfare" and "all crime is commercial". Which is why conflict is necessary in their system and why everything remains predicated on perpetual war and letters of marque.
