Nonkilling Legal Perspectives

  • 66 Accesses

Abstract

The purpose of law should not be just to establish peace and order in the society but also to uphold transcendental values for the upliftment of human beings. Hence, the need is to develop a nonkilling legal perspective as well. The legal contributions made by individuals and organizations with regard to nonkilling peace need sanctification which is imperative for us to evolve into a nonkilling society. Thus, to progress to the next level of human evolution has been the prime theme of this chapter.

No punishment has ever possessed enough power of deterrence to prevent the commission of crimes.
