--definition of law
What is the purpose of having laws in our society today?
--We need law in society because if there weren't any then people would go on killing sprees, and do all kinds of other things. The purpose is to control the citizens.
--We need laws and means to enforce them because we are on earth, not in Heaven.
--You have to understand that the law means nothing. The fact that a group of people write words on paper does not change reality or human behavior.
