Buddhism has in it no idea of there being a moral law laid down by somekind of cosmic lawgiver.
Conscience has nothing to do as lawgiver or judge;
but is a witness against me if I do wrong, and which approves if I do right. To act against conscience is to act against reason and God's Law.
The spirit of moderation should also be the spirit of the lawgiver.
