Are King Hammurabi's laws fair?
Decide for yourself.
Fair or unfair?
Do you think Hammurabi's laws are fair? Well, I don't. I think that his laws are completely unfair. I think we should have equal rights, like the same punishment for the same crime, no matter who committed it.
One of the laws, Law 48, says that if a man borrowed money for crops and a storm ruined them, he doesn't have to pay back his creditor. Do you see what I'm saying? Here, the lower class people don't have to pay the creditors. Then, the creditors don't get any money. How would you feel if you were a creditor who gave 10 shekels of silver to a man for crops, and you're expecting it back, and then you don't?! You want your money back, don't you?
