WHY DO RULES EXIST?

yass

WHAT IS SO GREAT ABOUT ORDERLINESS? WHAT IS IT ABOUT RULES THAT MAKES OUR KNEES WEAK AND BREATHS SHORT? THIS SOCIETY PUSHES IT ON US EVERY WAKING MOMENT FOR THE FIRST FEW DECADES OF OUR LIFE, EACH DAY IN NEW FORMS. DO WE HAVE TO LEARN THE RULES BEFORE WE BREAK THEM? NO? THEN WHY DO WE SIMULTANEOUSLY PRAISE THE STRANGE AND ABSTRACT?

WHY CAN WE NOT BE FREE WITHOUT EVER REALIZING THAT THERE ARE CONFINES AND BARRIERS TO WHAT WE CAN SAY, DO, AND THINK?

WE SEE PAINT SPLATTERS AND CALL IT ART.

WE LET OLD MEN WHISPER AND WHIMPER INTO MICROPHONES AND CALL IT MUSIC.

WE LET CRAZY LOONIES WRITE INCOHERENT AND LENGTHY SENTENCES ABOUT HARDSHIP AND CURIOSITY AND CALL IT LITERATURE.

ANYONE WHO OBJECTS “DOESN’T GET IT,” BUT HOW DO YOU EXPECT THEM TO GET IT IF THEIR BRAIN IS MARRED BY THE STRUCTURES AND BULLET POINTS PROVIDED BY YOU?
