People act like there are rules we have to follow.
Like exceptions to that are few and far between.
Maybe it gives you a sense of safety or security if you believe that, but there are plenty of people that don’t play by the rules of society, and they certainly don’t care about any extra ones you might choose to go by beyond that. They do what they want and, a lot of the time they get away with it.
The only real rules are the rules of nature.
“Might makes right.”
“Survival of the fittest.”
“Dog eat dog.”
None of those are philosophical concepts. They’re the same as gravity.
You can argue with it all you want, but…
Love it or hate it, if you jump off a skyscraper you’re still going to die.
This is life and nobody said it was fair.
