Stability of any country is tied to the fact that nations ought to be governed by rule law. The rule of law in any country is in its constitution which is the symbol of national unity. With national unity that we all want to subscribe to, there is a guarantee of peace. The effects could destabilize the order of any country. Citizens taking the law into their hands implies that there is a complete breakdown of the set rules.
Countries do prosper where is the rule of law. If the opposite is the order of the day then economies do shrink, and this then leads to an increase in the cost of living meaning the citizens do suffer as they cannot meet the cost of living, governments cannot generate revenue. The implication of all this is lack of amenities such as education and health.
