International law is a crucial subject to grasp, but most of it is conceptual or historic in character. Several of the theories addressed view 'norms' as a regulating factor in international affairs, albeit their interpretation of their importance and functioning varies. This book expands on this idea by introducing you to the function of global legal standards as a specific tool for international controlling the masses. Consider a tiny town with several units, that each have one apartment and one household. There is no central administration, legislature, judicial system, or law enforcement in this community. Each family's private concerns, as well as the boundaries of each estate, are held in high regard. The households mostly interact on a bilateral basis and participate in economic trades of products and services. It is widely assumed that if a family's leader passes, the successors will honor the predetermined commitments to other households and agreed-upon swaps. When youngsters choose to demarcate a new house or if a new family from another country wishes to move in, the existing families should first consent and acknowledge the new house. Once family conflicts develop, aggression may ensue, specifically if anybody crosses an agreed boundary or interferes with a family's objectives. It is widely acknowledged that one would use force to protect one's family and financial interests. Other households do not become involved in these conflicts unless their objectives are directly harmed, or they have developed a particular relationship with some other house. Consider if you would call this arrangement a legal system. Will you even bring up the subject of laws? Maybe you'd say no instinctively. Analyze what kinds of norms and principles would have to persist even in such a situation. What is the mechanism of any type of regulation? If you go a bit deeper into these issues, you'll come across being one of the most basic legal structures present in most judicial codes. Ownership, claim, jurisdiction, and boundary exist; a notion of sovereignty and ultimate power appears to apply to people; and the system of contract is undeniably there. You'll probably come across some regulations in the shape of defined standards, and you could even come across a principle that states that 'commitments must be kept.' To convey this fundamental concept, lawyers employ the Latin term “pacta sunt servanda”. Even in such a primitive context, some customary norms and ideas remain, even though they're not referred to as "law."
