This Maxim calls on people to obey the laws of the land in which they live. You pay your taxes, you follow the orders of the duly appointed, you respect the culture and you conduct yourself with honor. While you may disagree with a law you find unjust, you challenge it in debate and effect change in whatever manner existing law prescribes. You do not simply disregard laws you find inconvenient or disrupt civil society to hold government hostage to your demand for a law change. Law and order is the bedrock on which civilization is built and should be upheld at all times lest you sow instability and chaos.

As always, I ask that any atheists that wish to comment limit themselves to the philosophical aspects of the Maxims as I don't want these threads derailed into a general theological debate.

Laws are created by society in order to maintain itself, thus do enforcers and defensive measures come into play to maintain them. Following the law is not a religious concept it is societal.

The theology is extremely statist. Patriotism is a particularly pious ideal.
