All human beings are born equal, which was first proposed by Herodotus, the father of ancient Greek history, 2500 years ago. This idea of equality for all has been influencing the future history. The American Declaration of Independence, the French Declaration of Human Rights, the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights and so on, all of these documents embody the idea of equality for all. After the victory of the bourgeois revolution, the principle of equality before the law has been accepted by most countries in the world and has become the constitutional principle of almost all countries.
Equality before the law should be equal in legislation, law-abiding and law enforcement.
In the legal clauses, there are positive clauses, neutral clauses and negative clauses.
In order to improve the quality of law, the principle of equality before the law is worth exploring.
The principle of equality before the law applies to positive and neutral clauses in the law, but not to some negative clauses.
For example, the law prohibits smoking for people under the age of 18, which is equal for all people under the age of 18; the law allows smoking for people over the age of 18, which is also equal for all people over the age of 18. However, such equality is worth exploring.
Smoking is a bad habits. People over 18 years old smoke, and all have this bad habits.. The law should legislate to prohibit this kind of bad habits. and this kind of bad habits. which has not formed habit. For example, this year is 2018, if this year's legislation, the law should prohibit people born after January 1, 2000 from smoking, not smoking for life! Take January 1, 2000 as a watershed. People born before can smoke; people born after can not smoke. Why is this distinction made? Because people who smoked before January 1, 2000 have formed a habit, and those who were born after January 1, 2000 have not formed a habit yet, so the law should prohibit this bad habits. which has not formed a habit.
If the law can prohibit this kind of bad habits, which has not formed habit, So many things in the world can turn bad things into good things. According to a report issued by the World Health Organization: there are 1.1 billion smokers worldwide, 7 million people die from smoking every year, and the economic loss is $1.4 trillion. That is to say, 20,000 people die every day. This cruelty of death should have shocked our hearts more than the power of the atomic bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki. But in fact, people tend to be insensitive! If it can be achieved that people born after January 1, 2000 are not allowed to smoke, and they are not allowed to smoke for life! Then, there will be fewer and fewer smokers, and more and more non-smokers. A hundred years later, there will be no more smokers on our planet, and the fragrance will fill our homes.
I hope that state members and congressmen can pay attention to this important event that concerns millions of families, everyone and their descendants, and can propose legislation to help this law, benefit the people of the world, and make the world a better place for tomorrow!
