The legislature is charged with determining what is criminal. With the passage of time, the legislature creates more and more laws that limits or even criminalizes different behaviors or activities. This may argumentatively infringe on our individual liberties as our behaviors or activities are perhaps criminalized. In 600-850 words, discuss the balance between law and liberty, include the following:
- Explain how a legislative body should balance the competing interests of liberty and the social interests of safety and peace.
- Explain how the justice system supports the decisions of the legislature.
- Explain why there is a separation of authority between the legislature and the justice system? (comp. 4.2)
