Laws are rules framed by the governing body to bring order in society. In a well disciplined society, people obey the laws which in turn contribute to maintain peace and tranquillity in society. While formulating laws government needs to consider the needs and necessities of the citizens. If the citizens are discordant with the laws, it would lead to a dictatorship form of government wherein the people do not have the liberty to express their opinions or ideas. In extreme cases, citizens might even get infuriated by such rigid laws and stop following them leading to anarchy.

Laws should be unbiased so that there is no distinction made between the elite and poor citizens of society. For example, laws are framed to punish any citizen by imposing fines for violating the traffic norms. Such a rigid law ensure that the accidents are avoided. However the laws should not be always rigid. They should be flexible under different circumstances. For example, person should be punished for crime committed by him based on the evidences and circumstances presented. Punishment should be different for killing a person out of vengeance and killing a person out of self defence. Hence laws should be flexible so that innocent person is not proven guilty.

Laws should be flexible but not weak. If there are loopholes in laws, people may tend to exploit it and use it as per their suitability. For example, person may use unethical means in order to avoid paying tax on a certain legal procedure. Thus laws should be framed by lawmakers after having prolong discussions on the same and scrutinize and eliminate every possible loopholes in the same.

Laws should be such that they are flexible with the changes in society and also must consider every aspect of citizens in the society. Thus the citizens can have liberty to implement their own ideas or opinions and equally contribute in country’s progress at large.
