wahy are rules and laws important?

2 Answer

  • Rules and laws are important because the society needs something to go off of. For example if someone were to steal from the store and get away with it, every one would be doing it. If someone were to kill a person and get away with it, then  society would automatically think that its okay, and the whole world would go crazy about killing people they don't like.
    So its important to have laws and rules to keep people in check and to keep our society safe.
    Hope this helps:)
  • As citizens we respect the laws because they are clearly communicated and fairly enforced. Everyone is held accountable to the same laws, and those laws protect our fundamental rights. This is the foundation of the rule of law in the United States.
