Morality and the law. Morals and law. What is primary? What is more important?
Hello, dear Ladies and Gentlemen!We live in a democratic state governed by the rule of law (Russian Constitution, article 1). We accept the Constitution, believing in goodness and justice.A State law has a political and administrative character. Good and justice are moral categories. What does the rule of law imply? The rule of law in all matters of citizens ' life. Many people have a message to live exclusively according to the norms of law, without much regard for morality. How correct is this?On the other hand, it is written laws, officially adopted, that provide some kind of guarantee of justice, and unwritten rules, firstly, everyone has their own, and secondly, are very vague. The norms of law differ in accuracy (as well as letter-bearing and casuistry).What is the correct way in your opinion? Is morality the foundation and law the material expression of it, or is law the foundation of life and morality the private interpretation of local law? Perhaps these are two parallel equally important regulators of life? And how are they related then?Thank you for your participation in the discussion.
