    John Austin was a legal positivist from the nineteenth century who constructed what is known as the command theory, which was the idea that the laws were nothing more than a command that “obliges a person or persons to a course of conduct” and a lack of compliance would require said people to receive a punishment (Austin 51). Additionally, Austin believed that the law and morality were separate, and to discuss the idea of what laws should be does not take away from the fact they are still laws (52)…
