Society if based on rules and laws. It could not function if individuals were free to do whatever they wanted. To what extent do you agree or disagree?
Nowadays,there is an assertion that the freedom of citizens should be limited; otherwiseit might harm the social laws and justice system, thus making our societyunstable. Personally, this view is psychologically right, while it overlooksthe importance of fighting against the unfair laws freely.
Firstly,there is no doubt that obeying social rules and laws is the fundamentalobligation for all individuals, for the reason that they serve as a keyfunction of ensuring our society running on the right track. Obviously, theseregulations define the borders between the right and the wrong, the socialethics and day-to-day conduct standards, all of which can instruct and regulatecitizens to act and think in a lawful, polite and safe way. Otherwise, theignorance of these regulations, or so-called “an absolute freedom”, will trapour society into chaos and even malfunction. For example, if the traffic lawswere disrespected, it is expected that all streets and highways will be full ofcongestions and car crashes caused by wrongdoings in driving like blind overspeed or overtaking. Similarly, if the criminal law were absent, then therewill be no concern of punishments for committing crimes. Consequently, illegalactivities including thefts, robberies, arson, rapes, vandalism and murderswill be overwhelming, which will not only place the poverties and lives of thepublic in the danger, but also destroy today’s civilization in a long term.
However, there is always a justification that people should be allowed tofreely question and topple those unfair laws that are the barriers of democracydevelopment. In history, the typical example is the slavery law in America thatdefined African-Americans as second-class citizens and deprived their rights ofpublic education, health care and vote. If this evil law were just followed,instead of being eradicated through the pursuit of human freedom, we now canpredict clearly that current the community of America would be still full ofinequity, discrimination, and massive social disorder caused by conflictsbetween the black and white.
All in all, I agree that it is very necessary to limit the freedom of thepublic by confining their behaviors in the bounds of social regulation andlaws, which is the pre-condition of social democracy and stability. However,when it comes to unjust laws, the public should have the freedom to eliminatethem.(392 words)
