|There Ought to be a Law
Oh God, it seems to me there ought to be a law against such unjust and unkind behavior. But maybe we can’t write laws that will require or guarantee moral behavior on our part. Maybe we can only write laws to prevent the expression of immoral behavior. I wish we could sometimes give goodness and morality a helping hand. There ought to be a law.
Would decency look as good to us if it was legislated? Maybe decency wouldn’t appear so attractive to us if decency was the only choice a person could make in life. I know I would like it much better if people were nice to me because they wanted to be nice and not just because they were forced to be. I wish, somehow, that niceness and fairness were so commonplace among us that people would conclude that someone must have passed a law requiring such actions.
However, I suppose if morality didn’t come from our heart’s deep desire, the law would never ever be able to put a pretty face on it.
