Every Day life we see lots of locks and latches emphasising us the limitation our life; where can we go, where should stop proceeding further.
We could say that it’s a command by the authority that it doesn’t wish anyone further through it without prior permission. According to John Austin, the famous philosopher, if you break a command prescribed to you by an authority, you will be penalised.
Everyday life we have limitations. We do not have permit to access to lands and properties that belong to others. We do not have authority to open luggage that belongs to others. We do not have authority to use a motorbike or a vehicle that belongs to others, even if the the key is in the keyhole. We do not have authority to use other’s mobile phones.
The limitations imposed are to protect property, life, reputation, and rights of others and the society.
