Title Obligation to obey the law
Date 1972
Description It is often said that we have an obligation to obey the law just because it is the law. This idea has been espoused in the West at least as early as Socrates, and it is espoused today. It is not the special claim of any particular ideology, but has been held by advocates of most political persuasions. In times of crisis it is argued over with passion, and what is at issue is none other than the question of how much obedience and loyalty people owe to their political institutions.
