Does Manjaro has disabled firewall by default?

Does Manjaro has disabled firewall by default or my system is somehow changed/damaged?
$ sudo systemctl status iptables

No, there is no firewall enabled by default. Decisions like that are left up to the user. Users at home with a router NAT firewall do not necessarily need a software firewall.
