Laws You Should Know

Living in society means we agree to abide by community rules, laws and guidelines. Simply stated, there are things you can and can't do. Understanding the difference might just keep you out of jail.

Laws are important because they keep a society together and functioning. Laws strive to maintain peace and safety among people and provide ways to resolve issues that do arise among individuals. Laws exist to protect people from each other and from themselves as well as to protect the government from harm, to promote certain values and to provide goods and services.

Justice is important because keeping justice, the act of upholding good and punishing evil, is necessary for having a safe society dedicated to the benefit of all people, notes When justice is not upheld, those doing wrong will continue to do wrong, while those who are doing right will suffer rather than be rewarded.
