LAWMAKING BODY AND LAW-ERASING BODY

 

The national Diet of Japan (the national assembly) is referred to as a law-making body. This is because new laws are being made every year. It is not something to be proud of, however, for it is because of the crimes which are increasing all the time that members feel they have to constantly make new laws. If good people increased in number, it would become unnecessary for them to do so.

For the national Diet to become a law-erasing body would mark a true progress in civilization.
