Rules and laws have their place in society, and might have some measure of value.
They certainly protect the weak. Or, maybe it’s a matter of enforcing the will of the elite or powerful.
That polarizing way of thinking has sinister and unfortunate implications either way you look at it.
Or, you can take a light hearted view around the dogmatic elements of rules as George Carlin often has.
“Some parents deserve respect – most of them don’t.”
“Religion has never really had a big problem with murder.”
I recognize this is going to rile some folks – certainly many whom I both greatly value and even might admire. Nonetheless, I miss George for his insight, perspective and spin. And, I would not be a representing Heterodox (or, a right and proper Jeffersonian thinker, for that matter) if I did not stir the pot given any opportunity.
Peace be to my Brothers and Sisters.
