Abstract: The purpose of this paper is to deteratae. by examination of an historical example -- National Prohibition – some of the factors contributing to the efficacy of moral legislation. Some attempts to alter moral standards in a society have failed -- Prohibition, for example – and are dismissed with the glib assertioa that "you canʻt legislate Morals." It is not valid, however, to infer from the example of Prohibition that all attempts to alter morality through legislation are destined to fail.
