    Default Breaking rules is cool

    To all types:

    Do you think society expresses the belief that "breaking rules is cool," sometimes even if they wouldn't break those rules themselves?

    Why do you think this is so?

    I've heard the expression "too cool for school," and it makes me think that's true. If there are people who are so cool they refuse to go to school, which is breaking the rules, then breaking the rules is bound to be cool. There's no way around it.

    The moral enterprise is dependent upon deviance to survive. If there aren't any bad guys, how can the good guys know how good they are?

    Breaking stupid rules is really cool.

    I like to break the imaginary rules not written on paper. Maybe I should be a lawyer.

    Those count for this discussion, too, of course.

    I don't think society as a whole does, but I do think some groups in society do.

    It could be because they get a kick out of watching other people who are not them get in trouble. Or because they secretly hate those rules but are too straight-laced to go against them themselves... so they encourage other people who aren't to push on those barriers for them, so that eventually (hopefully) the rule is weakened or eliminated.

    It's not really about breaking rules, it's about not aknowledging them as relevant realities.

    I hate those...so much. People stick to imaginary rules, but then when you try to bring them up, they think you're talking nonsense and insinuating. It's like...what the fuck.

    Don't think breaking rules is considered cool per say, some have merit, blindly following rules because thats what has always been done is very much uncool however.
