Could we live | without laws?

50%

Yes - we should all be free to do what we like, with no rules or restrictions.

50%

Almost completely - we should have far fewer laws and no central government at all.

50%

I think we should still have laws and a government, but we should get more say in how our country is run.

50%

No - it would be impossible to have a fair and safe society without laws and people to govern us.

    People commit crimes due to their circumstances, making something illegal isn't going to stop someone from doing something (War on Drugs)

    A society is dependent of laws to ensure we live in an a orderly society whereby people understand restrictions to enable their own freedom.

    Laws can be unfair/unjust but you can't just trust that people will do the 'right' thing if there are no repercussions for their actions.

    In this day and age laws are essential to the successful running of society. Without laws to maintain order society would fail to function.

    Laws are a pivotal to society as they ensure the safety and order. Laws can face ire so people should be consulted towards their existence.

    Laws are essential for social order and a peaceful society. Human nature would result in a community based utopia failing over time.

    Laws are important to how a society functions, but as minimal state intervention as (safe as) possible is the ideal solution.

    Laws provide safety and order in society. Therefore they are essential for peace and justice in the world.

    I think laws are vital in society as if there were no laws there would be no order. However, i believe there should be less laws.

    Though it's essential to impose particular laws in society,there are still people commiting crimes, so do laws really eliminate any danger?

    We need laws to protect people and property but some laws discriminate so we should have more say.

    For instance, let's say a person had been killed, and the criminal remained unpunished, there would be no justice for the victim's family.

    The world would anarchical and no one would feel safe. Many people would commit crimes and they wouldn't have the punishment they deserved.

    We need basic laws to protect people but we should get more say in what the other laws say otherwise we have hardly any power at all.

    I don't think society would work if we didn't have laws but it's difficult because lots of laws in other countries are unfair and unjust.
