It creates a quality of life in which rights and responsibilities are respected and allows civilization to thrive. A simple task of crossing the street to buy a bagel involves countless laws - traffic lights, crosswalks, food and vehicle safety, business practices, discrimination in hiring and service - that impact each and every one of us every single day.
