Can there be good laws? Thomas Aquinas stated that laws exist to make people virtuous. In my opinion there are many benefits that can be found for having laws. Laws help people to think of others, to be visionary and to improve themselves. If laws were used for the purpose of helping people to become more virtuous, then there could be good laws in our society. Those people who view laws as a way to facilitate the improvement of virtuous characteristics are benefited from the laws.
