These people may be forced to con form by the threat of legal punishment. Thus the law serves to reinforce the mores. Thor who still will not conform are punished imprisoned, or even executed. Sometime laws are passed which do, not really harms size with mores, and their enforcement the becomes difficult or even impossible Or..e example of this is the Eighteen Amendment, passed In 1919, which outlaw the manufacture or sale of intoxicating liquor.
