This is a one-sided slant on things for intended dramatic effect, not a
balanced statement. Take the opposite slant:
Rules serve only to optimize the greatest good for all people. Those who like
to oppose them do so only because of the pleasure they get out of rebelling
against the common good, no matter what the psuedo-liberation garbage they
may try to cloak themselves in. The only way to deal with such people is to
shackle them and flaunt their captivity in their presence.
They scream no nicely and there are few things more fun than watching the
collective impotence of a cell full of self-seeking con artists faced with
the reality that they are being restrained.
And as far as liberators go, they're all liars and frauds anyway, so who
cares what they think?
Is either slant true? Not exactly. They're both half-truths. There are
*some* rules I hope you follow whenever I'm in Chicago, like driving
on the correct side of the road and stopping for red lights.
