It is very useful to understand, visualise and criticise laws and the organisation of it. The repressive system for example is well studied in sociology. The goal of a repressive trial aside the civil trial (which purpose is for the victim to ask for compensation) is to compensate the damage caused to society. In this schema, when there is an infraction without a victim, the society is always the victim. That’s why we have prison
While it’s useful for enforcing circulation laws (cars, traffic, parking) we can question the fact that it’s a fundamental concept in most juridical systems. Maybe the principle should be softened, and the repressive system, if maintained (because some argue that it shouldn’t exist at all) should be reserved to situations where victims do exist
That is all for today. I'll for sure tell you if anything else comes to my mind lol.
