What are the Aims of Laws?

Laws are so much part of everyone's life that it is common to take them for granted and not question why they exist. Traditionally, they do have some basic aims and they can be listed as:

1. Substitute for savagery: Humans, just like wild animals, are capable of violence. It is still considered a preferred method when two groups cannot see eye to eye. This preferred method is called war. If all in a country begin to pick that we will see nothing but savagery.

On the top of that, we will have the most powerful usually defeating the small guys. One of the aims of laws in a country is to prevent that from happening. They are substitutes to solving every problem with arguments and riots.

2. Strengthening of equity in the society: The synonyms  of equity is justice, fairness, honesty, righteousness and so on. Although most of them are more personal in nature the laws aim to strengthen their roots to maintain a fair society. By using fairness, it is possible to remind all that they may not use their bad intention to hurt others.

3. Bringing about a hope for metamorphosis through logic: We humans have realized that favorable situations can happen from the use of logic. Laws aim to do just that. The main intention here is to look at a problem and its solutions from a logical point of view. We have many systems in place to help laws make it possible. Just think about how when a business ends up hurting many people a new law is enacted to prevent it from happening in the future. That is a hope for metamorphosis.

4. Blueprint for morals: Lawmakers do not have time to teach people to be moral. But passed laws can to some extent serve as guidelines for people in decisions related to moral and immoral routes.
5. Providing freedom to individuals: By having right laws, it is possible to help individuals enjoy personal freedom. In short, they protect rights of what citizens can do. Our American Bill of Rights is an example of this. Below we ten are displayed.
