Law And Order

The moment you hear law and order you would probably think of a TV serial or a movie. Law and order is something which indicates the application of law in a system and the bringing about of order in the same. It is essential to have law and order in any country because each nation has to face its own problems and crimes which have to be controlled and penalized.

Without law and order, everybody would be free to do as they like. You can loot people whenever you want, commit murders when you feel angry with someone or make an illegal transaction when you want more money. It is the fear of the law and the respect for the concept of legal and illegal actions that restrains you from doing things which are not good in a moral sense.

Every nation has its own version of law and order. What is legal in one country may not be allowed in another. For example, Saudi Arabia considers it a crime to bring alcoholic beverages into its premises because their culture does not permit it. On the other hand, India produces alcoholic beverages for its people and also imports it for the same because it is legal.

This is a very hypothetical example but nevertheless something simple to understand. The reasons for disparity in the laws and orders of different countries are due to the difference in their culture and values. Each country has its own view of what they call legal and those they call illegal because of this difference in the way they perceive things.

Doing a Crime

Crime is used to describe an action which is against a law or something which is illegal. It is a very broad term which describes various things. A crime may be something which is quite minute and harmless to someone, yet a wrong thing since it goes against a set of rules, or it may be something which is done to hurt others.

The rate of crime around the world is increasing day by day. Though human beings have developed a lot in technology and science, and they have been educated in a systematic manner since the time of their birth, it seems they still have the criminal tendencies which remain in their hearts. This is so no matter how educated the people are or how well brought up.
Some people are just born to be criminals. If you look at the statistics you would be surprised to know that most criminals are normal people who never look like one or show any signs of such tendencies. In fact the person you like a lot might be a criminal though you would never dream that he would ever do anything wrong or go against the law in any way.

Crime is something which is simply born in you. Injustice of a system is one, which means that if you feel you have been given injustice in some way there is a good chance that you would turn your back to it. It is one way of looking at it.

Another way of describing a crime is to say that it is something which begins as a pleasure in your heart though you know that it is wrong. There are many criminals who can tell you that they are very aware that what they are doing is wrong but they can’t resist doing it anyways. This is how crime starts and then grows.
