TOLFA Segment 9, Question 5

A key part of the reasoning in Segment 9 is that since humans are everywhere the same, laws to govern human society should also be uniform and therefore borders are superfluous. But in fact there are many laws that differ across borders, even across city lines; so is this reasoning really correct? No, it's sophomoric. Of course there are differences, that local laws must accommodate - especially across national borders, where different customs have applied for centuries
It's spot-on. By government theory, rules need to be set so as to achieve harmony in society; humans are in that respect uniform, therefore such laws would have to be uniform. It reveals the shallow, sordid basis of government "justification" for having borders.
It's correct, but also forms a basis for having a "one-world government." I don't like that idea.

Don't hurry away; even when you've got the right answer, try clicking on the others to see why they are wrong! Then when you have correctly answered this make notes in your student notebook, then go to Question 6.
