Humans will behave badly without laws
I disagree with humans will behave badly without laws. I believe that if laws weren’t invented, our world would still be a great place and nothing too big would go upside down.
Firstly, at school, we don’t have any laws, but we usually try to pay teachers and other students with respect because it’s a kind thing to do to other people. For example, at school, most people don’t do bad things. We try to be kind to one another, we try to make friends and learn new things everyday (because the purpose of going to school is to learn).
Secondly, a long time ago, there weren’t any laws, and it wasn’t very chaotic or messy. Most things went fine. For example, a long time ago, people didn’t have keys or locks for their doors at home but not a lot of people stole things compared to these days. Also, these days, people somehow have more bad ideas than when there weren’t any laws, so that’s why these days, everything is more chaotic and messy.
Lastly, the crime rate these days are higher than when there weren’t any laws because these days, more people do bad things. For example, a long time ago, people were still learning about this world or trying to create new things to help us live better on Earth. They didn’t have time to do bad things or most people try to be nice to each other so they can keep this world a great world for the future. These days though (when laws were already invented), almost every single day or every single week, something bad happens. You can know by reading it on the newspaper, watching the news, hearing it from someone, hear it on the radio etc…
Therefore, I disagree with humans will behave badly without laws.
