The law is the standard model of power that legal governments and recognized states possess. In democratic and civilized societies, law — as the opposite of force plays a significant role in conflict resolution. The rule of law obliges the state and state structures to obey the laws; this is how justice and equity is manifested in political systems and governing systems. Once authority is directed based on the rule of law and justice, human rights will be guaranteed, protected, and legally recognized. Rationality is the very essence of law. That is why British philosopher John Locke tried to reform the existing political system to be more based on rationality. He clearly proposed this idea in his “social contract” theory, which went on to become the standard source of legal authority later throughout civilized societies. Hence, it seems that French philosopher Voltaire was affected by Locke’s ideas, as he believed that law is a rational guide in a world where rationality is absent.
