Law or just your social image ?

What stops us from doing things that are prohibited by law ? Is it the fear of law or the fear of what the society will think of us ? Rules are made to break they say. The only reason that we don't break rules is cause we are afraid of our social image going bad and not the law. I read these lines in a passage that our professor gave us to solve and i thought it was worth discussing. What say people ???

Hi, Pratyushtamhankar! Will, your discussion about that issue is very true. I find it hard to follow those laws given to us.I'm the type of the person who wants to enjoy life.Not that totally what we are thinking right now. We also afraid not to follow those law's because as what you said it makes us had a bad images to influence people around us. But the advantages of following the law's we as an individual consider as good follower too. It is for our own good. So we don't have to questions why there is a law. Have a good day!.. Happy Mylotting!

I think first of all it’s the fear of what society will think of us. Since childhood most of us are brought up by our parents to be good…good to people around us and generally have an image of a good child! None of us wanted to be seen as a bad child…this image of ourselves stays back with us and even in our adult life, we want to be seen as good law abiding citizens. Secondly, of course the fear of the law, the ignominy of being branded a criminal is enough of a deterrent for most people.

As for me ,i believe laws are set to regulate people's behaviors,they are natural rules.Since you were born ,you follow the way your parents do,not breaking the law. You will not kill some one , or usurp on properties not belonging to you .Laws grow up from customs,most people will obey it ,but still ther is somebody ,break it by accident. SO it is natural that we obey laws,the reaon for it is the same with why law comes out.
