KInd of stupid question. Do you mean in the whole world, or just one country? Given the dumbness of the question, I'll take a guess that you are American. The answer is "lots".

But in your case I'll make an exception.

We can count the nearly 7 billion people on the planet,
Can we count the number of laws we have made?

@MJA,
Assuming it is theoretically possible to do that ... why would we do that?

You did appreciate that I at least was being facetious?

Perhaps only show how far away from freedom mankind has gone.

@MJA,
Freedom is inversely proportional to the number of laws?

I didn't realize everyone was free in the lawless areas of the world.

Somalia may have the most freedom, it seems.

Laws?

How many laws have we written that restrict our freedom; can they even be counted? Do the justices know how many; do they even know what all the laws mean? Doesn't just mean equality; and equality freedom? Are laws just or unjust? Why do we freely elect law makers to write more laws; don’t we have enough? Do we need to be governed or ruled; shouldn't we be voting for freedom? Have we been taught to fear our own free will; without laws there would be chaos; is that true? Do you need laws to live by? Who wrote the first law; and what was it? Who took away our freedom, our free will? Who will write the last law and give our freedom back? And…is there such a thing as natural law Professor Newton; or did the apple really or truly fall freely from the tree? Is the answer quantum mechanical, is it God's rules? Is God a ruler; is God free? Isn’t the universe just; isn't it equally free? I think it is; but why aren’t we?
