Commentary :: Police State

Laws Reflect a Society

It is amazing how much you can tell about a society from its laws. Laws give us a glimpse into social order from eras and civilizations long past. Some of the oldest known written laws that we’ve found so far, are in the Code of Lipit-Ishtar. Lipit-Ishtar, was a shepherd and farmer from Nippur, Iraq, who became the ruler of Isin from about 1868 B.C. to 1857 B.C. Four broken stone tablets were discovered in the 1930’s, written in the Sumerian language, during the rule of Lipit-Ishtar. One law from that Code was, “If a man rented an ox and injured the flesh at the nose ring, he shall pay one third of its price.? Another one of the oldest written legal texts we have discovered, found in 1901 in Syria, is from the Code of Hammurabi, codified around 1792-1750 B.C., under the reign of Babylonian King Hammurabi. One of his laws was, “If an ox when passing through the street gore a man and bring about his death, that case has no penalty.? From the Puritanical Blue Laws of 1650 in Connecticut, to the surveillance-obsessed Federal Patriot Act in 2001, historians draw conclusions based on unique legal codes within societies. Centuries from now someone will discover our old law books and make documentaries of how we lived, based upon those laws.
