What is a "good law"?That's the important and tricking question, and for the record I'll tell you that we're discussing it now in my Theoretical Law(I don0t know the exact translation, as I'm Spanish)
You indirectly answered your own question.
Because the very basis of morals differ from one individual to another, an universal system of law that will satisfy everyone's point of view cannot be created. Society tries to centralize and standardize people's perceptions via education, but it fails due to the unpredictable atavistic instincts that exists within all of us, something most people refer to as "human nature."
