Constitution

The Constitution itself was based off of Natural Law. Natural Law is "the assertion that there is a natural order to the human world, that this order is good, and that people therefore ought to not violate it." The Constitution is essentially the master law of the land. According to the Constitution, we need a civil society. It protects the interest of the public good and rights of other citizens. The Constitution balances both sides of the Government in order to combine them happily.
