    Rules Are For People Who Can't Decide For Themselves

    I believe virtually all of society's rules exist mainly to instruct people who don't want to think for themselves.  Most people are followers, and prefer to be led by someone else.  People of average intelligence (most people) believe they should follow someone smarter than...
