Chapter 3: The Need For Law
Chapter 3: The need for law
Law is a primal need, after food and shelter, and it is the foundation of freedom.

You need law for protection from crime
And to enforce contracts

No law means no commerce.
No commerce means we all live in poverty.
How will you be safe and free if the state can’t enforce law anymore?
How will you earn a living if people don’t know whether they can trust you?
