So did the separation from our natural environment. A specific set of rules was imperative to govern them all. Our society created laws and these laws in turn, protect our rights and well-being. Established forms of language and communication helped laws spread to everyone. Think of it as an evolution and departure from the laws of nature. No longer do we need to resort to our primitive ways. We have moved away from our baser instincts and learned to communicate and negotiate.
