These phenomena caused far-reaching negative social consequences, so the state tried to eliminate them by means of laws. Their history clearly shows that they were extremely ineffective. They were published with noble intentions of improving customs in a broad sense and stopping the negative phenomenon of the disappearance of the features of the former ethos. They were an expression of the noble but somewhat naive faith presented by the Roman legislator that a problem could be solved by means of a law.
