The State of Nature – John Locke
John Locke reasons that in the beginning humans lived in the State of Nature. State of nature where there were no overlord State or government to impose the law of men onto their subjects. The lawbreaker was dealt with one on one, about who broke the law and how. If confronted by a lawbreaker, or catching a lawbreaker doing violence to an individual, then the lawbreaker was punished directly without a third party.
The same principle is written in the Holy Bible book of Exodus, some 3400 years ago.
