Abstract

Nobel Literature Prize winner William Faulkner said: "He never used a word that would make the reader open vocabulary!" We often use words that we hear thousands of times, but we find it difficult to accurately explain their meaning. It is impossible to write well for an issue without understanding the significance of the word or words in the matter. In this context, I give you two questions: 1. What does the word principle mean? 2. What do we mean by the word principle? The word principle according to the Dictionary of Today's Albanian Language is explained as: • the general conclusion that comes from knowing the world and which is based on a theory, a science or a worldview; One of the basic theses on which the knowledge of theory in a field is based and explored • a line determined according to a worldview that serves as a guide to the activity of a political or social field Understanding the meaning of the word principle helps us to understand that the principle (its extraction) is or should be the result of a long work that comes as a result of knowing the world, a long work that will be crowned with a general conclusion. To reach a conclusion, even if general, one needs a long research. In this context, we challenge ourselves and others with such rhetorical questions: • Are the principles, their extraction, the result of a long work that comes as a result of knowing the situation? • Are the principles merely the result of the short copy-paste work (copying the laws of other states) of jurors? • Is the lawyer’s perception of the world that the extraction of the laws and principles they contain serves rather to politics rather than justice? Are these designed principles enough for a good institution - Performance, sustainability, and adaptability, collaboration, revisability, robustness, sensitivity, publicity, variation to name a few…??? What do you think about! The existence of well-formulated principles is without the state's constraining force and the unwillingness of the individual Responsibility for implementing the principles falls on the state and the individual.
