  At first I had a tough time answering this question, although like we discussed in class, some laws may not necessarily change society as a whole immediately, but it indeed does have an effect on how people view the world.

Laws are rules that bind all people living in a community. Laws protect our general safety, and ensure our rights as citizens against abuses by other people, by organizations, and by the government itself.  Laws prevent or deter people from behaving in a manner that negatively affects the quality of life of other people, therefore the consequences of breaking the law often fit the crime, whether we can agree with the law or not.

Laws have a significant impact on our lives. Whether they relate to social services, education, housing, our safety, or the environment there is a tendency for us to take these rules and regulations for granted as long as they keep society running smoothly. On the other hand, we tend to become more involved with public policy decision- making when a rule or regulation has a negative impact on our life. Do you have an example of ways that you encounter the law on a regular basis?
