I want to know what others think. Can a rule be broken and is it good or bad.When is breaking a rule okay and when it is not okay?
Sure, all rules can be broken. Other things being equal, it's usually a bad thing. But, first, "usually" is not "always". Some rules are stupid and shouldn't have been there in the first place. (Consider the rule that said: "Rosa Parks, this is a segregated bus, and you can't sit on this seat.") And second, other things need not be equal. "Don't lie" is usually a good rule, but sometimes lying is the lesser evil than the alternative. (Like when somebody asks you: "Do these pants make me look fat?")
