The same thing also works when we’re talking about laws, as they have kept their roots since primeval times. In the past, when the laws were not even established, the world was an utter chaos. Everyone was fighting for themselves, trying to avoid death in any possible way, just so they could survive and live yet another day. What people didn’t know at that time, was that they were already using a law. It was the “law of the jungle”. This phrase was used in a poem by Rudyard Kipling, him describing the obligations of a wolf in a pack. People of those times were basically, same as wolves, their behaviour did not differ that much. “Every man for himself,” “anything goes,” “survival of the strongest,” “survival of the fittest,” “kill or be killed,” and “eat or be eaten”. These were the first instincts of “the law of the jungle” that we based on. It doesn’t matter that we used this law unconsciously, or that this rule was way too general, not describing the actual state of a law. The fact that we were already starting to develop some ideas, some rules of how to live, how to get food, how to hide, how to invent something, despite them being only as a way of survival, but still, it’s something amazing if we consider the period of when all these things occurred. Also, the principles of “the law of the jungle”, in a less-serious meaning comparing to the past, are still used in our modern state. When people were already organized in tribes, they had some norms and rules of

This book, which was intended to focus on the exploited workers in the meat industry would depict the unsanitary conditions for a mere 10 pages. Missing the point of the novel, Americans were disgusted by the conditions of the packing plants, rather than outrage at the mistreatment of the workers at these plants (Kauffman). The Jungle spurred new legislation, but this legislation wasn’t the first that called for such standards. In 1641, the Massachusetts Colony had passed the Meat and Fish Inspection document which prohibited selling “diseased, corrupted, contagious or unwholesome provisions” (Massachusetts Act against Selling Unwholesome Provisions).
Marigolds that have been exposed to high amounts of Cobalt 60 have been shown to grow with severe defects. The problem did not start with the flower’s blossoming, with its nourishment, or even with the surfacing of the first sprout. Before it was even planted, it was corrupted. The very seeds of the American Dream were sewn with prejudice, and yet we ask ourselves how its malformation came to be. The American Dream burgeoned in a time of xenophobia and sexism, and thus, its petals are laced with bias and corruption.
Then the 17th century American colonies put an emphasis on preserving legal order. That being said, the government has always been under pressure to regard given law, and the law has been perceived as a manifestation of accurately functioning legal

Wild Law was a term first construed by author Cormac Cullinan to refer to human laws that consist of Earth’s jurisprudence. Politics, legal theory, physics, and ancient wisdom are foretold in Cullinan’s book Wild Law to inform and recognize a movement of nature’s rights just as human rights impacted the twenty first century. Cormac Cullinan illustrates our ability to transform our systematically industrialize society to enable our rediscovery of human’s practical role in the Earth’s system. Humanities survival depends on Earth’s health and our transformation of governance systems so that humans are reunited with the ecological matrix which includes biological perseverance and diversity. Instead of dominating nature our actions must be consistent
Upton Sinclair portrays the economic tension in the United States during the late 19th and early 20th centuries through his novel “The Jungle”.

When Upton Sinclair wrote the Jungle, a book about the terrible environment of the meat-packing factories in Chicago, he hoped to motivate reform in immigrant working conditions and promote socialism. Instead, what shocked readers the most was the sordid surroundings in which their future meals were prepared. Sinclair 's audience saw these conditions as a threat to themselves, and that energized reform in the meat-packing industry. What scared audiences the most was how real this threat was to their lives. As can be witnessed in the results of Sinclair 's crusade, the most effective propaganda is that which rouses the visceral survival instinct.

In a world without law peace and justice would be hard to maintain. The law is created to help protect the people’s rights and keep them safe. Throughout time laws have been changed either creating new laws or restructuring old laws or just removing old laws. There is a thin line between right and wrong and that is why people have been struggling throughout the ages to come up with the perfect set of laws to follow. With this uncertainty set in place the question of whether if it is ever justified to break the law comes up.
Law is present in our daily life and in everything we do. We cannot think a second without law. Whatever we can see around us everything is connected with the law. Sometimes we can see it and sometimes we cannot see but feel it. Law is not just a thing to obey for yourself but making a peaceful society.
Why do we have laws and rules? The reason we have laws and rules is to protect us and keep us safe from danger. Imagine a world where there are no laws and rules. Imagine living in a world where everyone had the freedom to do
