Since the creation of man an ideal, satisfactory society has never existed. As one can see (from recorded history) , every society that has ever
existed has had at least half of it's citizens not pleased with its government or way of being run. Whether it be a tyrannt ruining the society or
its lack of productivity, etc. Even America has its problems especially now more then ever, particularly due to it's ineffective government, it's
technologys that are ever so quickly changing the face of humanity, and its indolence.
Some people may say that America was once the a place where bliss was pervasive, but they are ever so wrong; America has always been a place of
problems just like all other nations/society's that have ever existed. The most influencial of all ancient societys, the Romans and Greeks, at their
pinnacle point, were in fact much worst off than America is now. Why is that one might ask. Well it is because laws that governed these "great"
societys were ineffective, and even the greatest leaders of these nations failed to achieve a state where crime and poverty are defunct. Why did these
leaders and nations not achieve a ideal society where all are happy, and crime and poverty are non existant? They couldnt have because history, common
knowledge, and experience have proven that most laws in practice today are ineffective, and serously need to be revised, and rewritten.
One can see that most of our laws and ways of dealing with situations
are in fact borrowed from the Greeks and Romans. Well you dont need to be a historian to know that both those society's failed and crumbled leaving
its people miserable. In this day and age we have a rife of technology, power and knowledge to create an ideal society where crime is almost
non-existant, people are truly happy, the government actually does its job, people are united, and most important morality reigns above all.
How can an ideal society be formed? Simple new laws, codes have to be created to fit specific needs of the 21st century. A new way of dealing
with criminals has to be conjured. A more effective government has to be created, one that serves the people. New court systems, definitons and roles
of the police, morals, boudary laws, foreign affairs, peoples rights under the government all have to be redefined or revised to fit the demands and
needs of the people today.
So my question to ATS members is the following: If you were given the opportunity to create an ideal society, then what laws would you enact? What
way of governing do you believe would create an ideal society? Please conjure up laws thay you see will fit into conventional times( laws dealing with
immigration, foreign policy, crime, etc).
