do you think theres chaos without law? no orderliness? can we live without law? why do people need a higher jurisdiction to make them behave ethically?.. in heaven theres no law right? souls are in peace.. is earth really that weak of self discipline and control that we need a law to follow and have a better place..? my dad and sister are lawyers, i saw them never missed a day reading books and dealing cases.., i just wonder, if life is so simple, why do we need it? are we that dependent to written guidelines? its like a beautiful organized list of do's and dont's^_^ please dont argue me.. im just an open minded person and i love to think beyond the normal.. i just want opinions.. your views and how you explain its importance.. thanks..^_^

Some of think life is so simple and some are not, and some are behavior like animals and some are so decient. So low can so protect good guys from bad guys. thats why we need it in correct, suitable time. If someone does the law its not a simple single hand game, its like solider who has lots of weapons to destroy enemies. So solider has lots of weapons to use in suitable time to protect his life and others life. Because he is doing great job to protect form good guys from bad guys.

'For though I am free from all men, I have made myself a servant to all, that I might win the more... To those who are without law [I became] as without law ... that I might win those who are without law ... that I might by all means save some' (1 Con 9:19-23). this is averse from bible saying that without law man wont be man he will be a normal creature of forest who dont have any laws .. but by creating laws for himself and others man has abided it self as supreme to all creatures.

Well that is a debatable standpoint right there. Animals have a hierarchy that they abide by; the law of the jungle; pecking orders... the whole lot are laws. Clearly they have little to do with the way we operate, but still they are bestial examples of an organisation in place to maintain order. If anything, man is the wildest animal, especially as he has the capacity to think for himself and come up with judgement calls of his/her own. Trouble is, the more civilisation advances, the less people want to take responsibility for thinking and look to paid judges to appraise and act on their behalf. Law is a man-made cop out. Who can possibly argue against the idea, when there are millions of people who know the difference bewteen right and wrong. So everyone has the capacity to know that too, but they choose not to in the name of self-interest usually. If we all did the right thing, we could do away with huge swathes of establishment and legal baggage.

I think law helps keep an attainable amount of peace in society. Unfortunately crime will always happen no matter what because along with the good comes the bad.

hi i just feel laws are really important.if all people were so good then no need for any laws or anything.but this world is actually filled with crimes.people don't even hesitate to kill themselves for money ,power or whatever.if only there are laws and they are strictly enforced i think there will be some change to this situation.just think of a simple situation where you can if needed disobey a traffic rule.if there is no punishment all passers will just do that.they are sure nothing gonna hapend even if they are caught.what if the rules were strict?

Law of course is very important... be it any country... but the major thing is that with all those rules or "laws" applied hardly 10% of them follow it... be it wether law is thr or not no one really cares.. this is so b'cos the rule meakers are th rule breakers.. if we have ppl whu follow these rules right frm he makers to on those on whum its applied... it is only then thr will be proper enforce ment of law...

for me its important because there are a lot of people who are definitely not like you... some are very unruly and cant accept the fact that he has to do things the right way... without the law, any greedy, power grabbing person can just manipulate us and do whatever he wants.... and we all know money talks... even now that we have laws they are still very immature to follow it how much more if you dont give them restrictions... this is just to some of course...

For a country the administration is must and for administration the strickness is must and for strickness the LAW is must.LAW is such way that we can follow a suitable sulition for a problem and its acceptable for all.

Law is important for survival. Otherwise, knowing our human nature, people will do anything they want. They can kill, rob, steal, rape, etc. Anything what their evil mind tells them. Human needs law because of human nature. Without it, we will all die. Sooner or later in a society without law, someone somehow will eventually formulate law and order, because without it, no one will survive. Each man for his own.

I think we can't be thinking living safe in this world without any Law and Order..in the country..It is the base time to decide between the good and the bad as many people can think the work they have done is right but in other's eye the same job will be bad.So without law and order we can't diffentiate between them and it will end up in total masacare.. Without any law and order in the country it will be like a forest with all animals hungry to taste the blood of the other's..

There is no doubt that th guiding factor for all discipline is law. What ever country one may live in, but lawlessness is the mark of uncivilization and unculture. Law is the supreme security abobe all, no doubt. Thanks.

law is always an important thing here. However, in my country Thailand, it is not that great but it isn't bad either. It's just that sometimes there are obvious loopholes for people with money to exploit. That's what happens throughout the world anyway though.

Law is very important to a country which is in urge for development. A country's progress can be judged by how good and strong the laws it has framed. Laws are not only important for the development of the country but also needed for maintaining peace and harmony among the people.

Law comes into almost every area of life. There are laws about how people work with one another, how we trade and how we own things. Law is the system which gives people the security that they need from some body to which they can redress their greivances. It identifies the wrong doers and punishes them. In the modern world, law is of key importance and it has to be taken seriously.

Well law is essential for every country, for example there is no rules for moving on roads then definately accidents will increase.

Yes I think without law a country's internal ststus will be very much out of order and the people who do crime will go free and potentially that country will always become a soft target for another coutry to attack and won over
