What is law?

The law is the text, the utterance that promises to frame our activity, our existence as obedience. Obedience is a sacrifice; it is irrational; the ostensible naivety of the lawful protects from the gaze of envy, of jealousy of arrogance of knowledge. Adherence to law thus leads to social harmony, peace and prosperity.
