Rules Are Meant To Be Followed - Part 2

Not many thieves start out wanting to rob a bank. Although I’m sure, there are exceptions. Society surreptitiously tells them that they can get away with it, every time they see someone drive through a red robot (red light for the Americans) or bribe a police officer (something else that is rife here), when they are caught drinking and driving.

I finished reading Thrive by Dan Buettner a little while ago. National Geographic does a world happiness survey every five years and paid Dan to investigate the happiest places on Earth. Many factors affect happiness and in an overwhelming number of cases where the people are happy, the citizens have a great respect for the law. In addition, the people who are supposed to uphold the law (the police, army etc.) also have a great respect for the law (sadly, something that is also lacking here...).

There will always be some element of crime in our world. However, we do ourselves no favors by breaking all the small rules; for, let’s face it, such a tiny and completely selfish gain. If I park in two parking bays, do I really gain all that much? In most car parks, the bays are wide enough for just about any car.

Yes, rule breaking is cool. However, the damage may be great. Therefore, humanity needs to decide, do we want to be cool or happy?
