I don't get exactly what a government "policy" is. I know that groups of laws are made under a policy that supports what the policy says. However, what are the policies? Do they have official names? Like do we know that laws A, B and C are under, say, policy X? Or is "policy" just a vague term that people just make up when they want to describe something a group of laws have in common? Are "acts" the same as policies? Is there a list of government policies out there that I can see? Can you name any for me?
I'm sorry if this sounds stupid; I've never thought about this before.

We have a policy to no negotiate with kidnappers. It is illegal to kidnap. One is a premise of operation, one is the rule (or law) that shapes behavior.
