Do you guys believe we all should follow social rules?


They aren't imposed on us, and is kind of hypocrisy if you stop being who you really are to accept them. The same for laws, but they're something bigger.

 

I just don't think we all should follow social rules. Not if we disagree with them. I believe there's a big shadow over us forcing us to follow this stuff.

 

What do you guys think about it?

Want to give examples? Some of them are to create a stable society where anarchism doesn't run rampant. For example, if there were no laws and social rules of law and justice, society would not be a safe place to operate and live - in fact, it would be nearly impossible. You have to define what "social rules" consist of in comparison to laws.

There are social norms that are spoken, and those that are unspoken.  If you live in the United States or another western country, you're lucky enough to live in a place where you really don't have to follow the social norms if you don't want to.  Although there are some that will harm you if you don't...like dressing nice for a job interview, etc.

 

I think it really depends on how much you want to be a part of your culture at large, and your smaller culture within your family and friends.
