Heaven and hell

Law means the whole system of rules that everyone in a country or a society must obey, according to Oxford Advanced Learner’s Dictionary. As laws are enacted in the interest of the majority of members of a society, every member of the society is required to abide by the law. Another reason why they should abide by the law is that laws give protection to all members of a society.
The rule of law will always be challenged as long as legal action cannot be taken against every unlawful act. Action must be taken against anyone who commits crime whether it is a minor or major crime, whether it is committed by criminals or officials, whether the crime victim is a friend or an enemy. The rule of law will always be challenged as long as laws are not enacted in the interests of the majority of a society. When laws are enacted in the interests of the majority, it is highly unlikely that people will break a law that protects them and their interests as no one would do oneself any harm.
Therefore, it is important to enact laws that are in the interest of the majority members of a society and legal action is taken against anyone who breaks laws that give protection to a society as a whole. A society without the rule of law would be heaven for a few but hell for the majority of members of a society.
