Stupid or Common

Rate this Entry
Every society that exists on the face of the earth is governed by a set of laws. Some of these laws are designed to regulate corporations that employ thousands of individuals and earn billions of dollars each year, while other laws exist to make sure that citizens of a very small community are able to live with each other in peace and in harmony. In every case that a law has been written, the explicit purpose is to make sure that people are able to coexist in peace and harmony while pursuing their various interests.

Some people might find that their city has enacted what they consider to be stupid laws. These laws might either contain language that appears to be poorly worded or lay down restrictions that the populace might consider to be petty or overbearing. Equally confusing to many is the nature of the common law. How could regulations that have never been ratified by any legal body be viewed as the law of the land? After a while, some people might begin to feel that possessing a legal dictionary is the only way to properly interpret what is and what is not permissible.

Granted, the nature of the common law might seem to be a bit of a challenge to grasp at first, and some of the regulations on the book admittedly can be labeled as stupid laws. However, the law is the law, and regardless of the code from which these laws originate, they must be obeyed by all. Simply put, documents such as a legal dictionary exist to help people understand the law more properly and clearly. They do not exist as a means to more fully explain or justify the existence of any regulation that has been enacted.

In short, understanding the nature of the common law is helpful, as well as learning why seemingly stupid laws are enacted. However, the long and the short of it is that all laws need to be observed. It might take a legal dictionary to fully understand some of the complicated terminology incorporated in a law, but it does not take a legal dictionary to help you simply obey all of the laws of the land!

    Common law is quite simple but it's obviously quite complicated to you. As the writer of this article you do not understand it one bit. Get your learnin' on:
