By way of instance, the sanctity of the institution of marriage in India has retained the divorce rate to the minimum despite the supply of divorce at the law books like any other western nation. The regulations are enforced jointly by the society. As every man desires to be loved and respected by the society, the ethical principles are often more successful to keep the guy on the perfect path than the law.
Even though the legal values of a nation or society is recorded and enforced, these are inadequate for the smooth operation of the state. The perfect state is one where the State does not need to enforce any legislation as the taxpayers voluntarily adhere to the laws of the property. But this rarely occurs since all of the State laws are supplied by the men and women that are in power or those who have influence on strong folks.
These strong people make sure that laws are drafted in their favour of couple instead of in the favour of the masses. Thus over a time period, the enforcement of legislation creates a class of people that are extremely effective and rich while the vast majority population live the life span of haplessness and poverty.
However, the disparity and injustice created by law is mainly reduced Because of the incidence of the ethical values in the society that need not to be codified in the statute books. Yet the ethical values are passed from one generation to another by convention.
All values embraced by men produce exclusivity in human design as such values are different for each and every society and indeed for each guy. The values are thus the source of conflicts in the world as each individual or nation believes ardently in their values as perfect. Yet all those values are non-permanent and passing those changes with time and distance. The values of the current generation are not same as the value of the preceding generation.
However there is some ingredient in most respects that never changes. It has remained same in long years of human development. These values are eternal since they never change. Therefore, frequently people call such values as religious or celestial as it never expires and its origin too is not known.
The Conflict of Values
Life is a mystery which not be explained either by science or by scriptures. Truth has a body and a soul that we call science and faith. Contrary to popular perception, they are not opposed to each other but complement each other such as soul and body. In actuality, they not exist without each other.
