In any organization, rules are established to prevent chaos and encourage uniformity. Rules also tend to make things more fair. Take baseball as an example of the need for rules. If there were no rules in baseball, there would be no way to play the game or determine a winner. The game would be complete chaos with no discernible pattern. In baseball, rules are even being changed and developed in an effort to make the game more interesting, while ensuring that the game is played fairly. Parenting is another area where rules are important.
Raising children with rules prepares the children for the real world, which has rules governing every aspect of life as an adult. Rules are also valuable because without them people feel insecure. While chaos makes people feel unsafe and unsure of their place and roles, rules encourage order, which makes goals and expectations more clear and allows both children and adults to feel confident, competent and safe.
It seems that people don\’t like rules as they represent a kind of restrictions, but in fact life can\’t be organized without rules.
People always need rules and laws to be able to live and deal together. Can you imagine even a game without rules; of course it will be a kind of mess. When they are playing a game, they must follow its rules or it will be unfair. Also everything in our life should be restricted with rules or it becomes a mess and unfair. If there are no rules and everyone is free to do whatever they want, most people will probably behave selfishly.
We need rules to help us get a long together and show respect to each other. For example in schools, if a student ignores rule against talking in class, the teacher will not be able to achieve his goal and other students can\’t concentrate. Drivers who don\’t follow traffic laws can cause serious accidents. Doctors, engineers, farmers, everyone in the society must behave under rules. Most things we do are governed by rules which may be unwritten like the rules of social politeness and back up by the legal system.
All the rules and laws have the same purpose. They organized the relations between individuals and the society to make it clear what is right and wrong and what happens if someone breaks the rules. They are designed to ensure fairness, safety and respect for other people\’s right. Most of us are basically honest, and knowing the rules means that we usually try to follow them. One reason we do is to avoid punishment, but the strongest argument for following the rules is to make the world peaceful and fair.
