Law isn’t just that. It embraces a vast range of topics and ways. There is probably a rule that fits just about everyone in the world. For nearly all the civilized countries, anyway, there are vast amounts of regulations that would take an ordinary person a life-time to read through, and then more than eighty per cent would not have any relevance whatever to one’s daily life. You think. But they may.
There are laws that have never been enacted. Rules that are obscure. Regulations that were made centuries ago, repealed, reworded, and trotted out in other guises. Some regulations that exist now, are so obsolete that even lawyers have not a clue what they are about.
The lady who stands for law has three symbols in her hands, that symbolize what exactly the three rules are. The sword is a statement of what the courts stand for; the scales show what each claim should be weighed; and the blindfold says that the justice given should be given out objectively, without fear or favour. Many have tried to bend this to their own favour, but somehow justice usually has her way.
Justice systems cover everyone’s day-to-day life. When one walks out of one’s house, the legal system kicks in. No-one else has any right, unless permitted, to enter that house, until the owner returns. No damage must be done to it, or the insurance regulations kick in. Break and enter that house, and, if you are caught, a world of grief awaits one.
Medical health is another heavily populated street. People are encouraged to insure themselves against illness, injury, loss of income, and a myriad of other causes. If one has disabilities caused at the job itself, then there is a justice to help them gain some benefits for their mis-fortune. But, on the reverse side, there are also laws that protect the employer too.
Breaking any rule, whether one knows it or not, can land one in seriously hot water. The excuse of “But I was not aware of that rule”, seldom cuts any ice in a court of justice. A working knowledge of the regulations in the system is useful.
While drunk, riding a giraffe down the street might not be well-known, substitute the word “giraffe” for any other article that one rides, and one is carted off very quickly, usually for one’s own protection.
It can be very expensive to appear in a court. Each person there is really an employee of the justice system, and, as such, need to be paid. If the misdemeanor is such that one narrowly misses jail, then a fine is issued, which is part of the process. A judge sets this, and the legal terms within which the fine must be paid. Other parts of the sentence are also added to the fine, such as community service, and other things, such as certain clinics or services that one must attend.
The ramifications of law are wide-spread. Spend half-an-hour on the Internet and find out many regulations that one has never heard of. The law in some countries, for instance, states that a thief must lose one hand for an offense, and both, if it is severe enough. There are penalties, and penalties. If the man one the giraffe, for instance, does it once, he may be fined, and the giraffe confiscated for a day or two, until the owner sobers up. But, if he does it several times, and is arrested several times, then he might be looking at several weeks or months in a jail, the loss of his giraffe, and being made attend several clinics to address his drink problem.
