Do you think law should be used as a tool for shaping a shared moral climate? Why or why not? Should moral values be written into the law and enforced? Can you think of any examples where a change in the law seemed to improve the moral climate of society?

Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

In my opinion, law should be used as one of the tools for shaping g a shared moral climate. This is so because have a law in place which is aimed at achieving this will make some people avoid immoral behavior as the law will have make such things punishable. In reality, social libertarians should first win the hearts of the people before enforcing any law. Winning them will actually make them accept the laws and hence lead to a better moral life. Thus, this level of fear created by the law will make people fear being immoral hence shaping a shared moral climate.

Not all moral values can be written into the law and enforced. This is so because some morality issue if enforcing can lead to worse situation than not enforcing them by law. For examples, it would not be possible to send one to jail for not ironing his shirt although to some it’s immoral. However, some values can be written into the law and enforced. In some cases, change in the law can be done to improve the moral climate in the society. For instance, illegalizing early marriage can help improve the moral climate in a society.

Is this answer in your own words? I just want to be sure before I put it on my homework question because they prefer original work and just need to know if I need to change wording

Yes, I think most everybody would recognize that in certain instances using laws to legislate morality could be useful. I'm interested in why you focus on social libertarians, and why they need to win the hearts of people before they can do this. Wouldn't any group need to do that as well? Any time we are trying to use laws to make this type of change, don't we need to "sell it" to the people (before or after)? At the end of your post, you provide an interesting example: the illegalization of early marriage. Can you spell this out for us a little bit. How would this change the laws? How would this help improve the moral climate?
