why do we need laws?

every day when i pass through the two-wheeler parking lot i see the security personnel guiding the students to park their vehicles in an organized manner. just imagine if even one parks the bike in a crooked manner, it will lead to hardships for many. 

this is precisely the case with laws. we would have loved to park where we liked and hate someone telling us where to park. but that is not in the interest of all. so, laws are necessary to bring about some order in society. there is a cost involved in everything. when we are mandated to follow the laws it means giving up some aspects of our personal freedom. but the benefits to the society as a whole are many and that is the reason why we all crib about too many laws but can't imagine a society without them. 

please feel free to comment.

  1. Rightly said, "....laws are necessary to bring about some order in society".

    Law fills the patch between civilized and chaotic world. And, definitely we need some order to bring that law in action, or more correctly, in use.

  2. Just like religion, laws are of paramount importance to govern the vulnerable masses.

  3. there are certain ideals to be followed if you live in a society but what is now on picture is how the legislatures pass laws which serve the interests of a minority
