Background of the Study

A wise king once said that "we should understand and accept even in our history that there is a lengthy period of chaos before stability". Collective stability seems difficult to achieve if we believe in with this words alone. In the medieval period until at present, everyone is struggling to seek for this stability to preserve human rights, justice, equality, fairness, freedom, free will and to preserve life.

Human Rights are practiced but the sad part is not by all members of the society, justice and equality are still a big question, fairness and freedom are hard to experience and the free will of life is sometimes forgotten and disregard. These factors are considered as the main ingredients to complete and taste a sweet life.

Political Perspective is never been separated in the society as one of the main factor in achieving and destroying the desired steadiness in the community. Leaders decision whether it is right or wrong is sometimes implemented without acknowledging the benefits of the majority, without listening to their though and demands and without considering the value of mankind.

Aristotle reinforced that "the city or state exists not just for security and trade, but to foster the "good life", the life according to virtue". A good life therefore is impossible to reach in there is no stable society where you belong.

History proved to us that "Social Order" is really the biggest problem faced by the people. Since the primitive period, people are fighting for social order and until now their fights are continued by our generation and still pursued to achieve the dreams of our ancestors " History will changed and we will achieved this stability" . To our dearest land, social order is not still enjoyed; we are still to prove that we can make a way and find the finest means to achieved social stability.
