Is there need for rules ? Discuss
 
As we progress and advance in a very demanding world, there is a need for new laws, rules and regulations in small and large environments. Without these new controlling institutions, life would probably be far more difficult and people will do what they like whenever they please.

There are rules and regulations everywhere. In schools and institutions of learning, the young have to observe the rules instituted. Likewise, in the workplace, employees and employers have to abide by the regulations of employment. At social and family gatherings too, there are unwritten rules of behaviour to comply with. In our homes, parents make house rules for the children such as the time we should be home, when to watch television, the friends we may go out with and how long we may speak on the telephone, and more.

Rules and regulations are necessary to ensure the smooth functioning of society. Without them, chaos would prevail as everyone applies their own code of conduct. The code implies that certain expectations are demanded of us if we are to live peaceably in society. Rules ensure that there is fair treatment of workers and fair play on the playing fields. They ensure that no person or group may take advantage of others and there is respect for one another's rights and property. It makes for harmonious living and forms a basis of discipline so that children can be guided and socialised.

Although some rules may appear to be childish and ridiculous such as the penalties imposed on those caught littering and soiling lifts, these are justifiable as there is evidence of thoughtless and inconsiderate people. It may seem unfair to the quiet, peace-loving majority of the community, but without the existence of rules and laws, respect for human life may come to nought. Thugs and gangsters may rule the day and secret societies dominate society if laws do no prevail. It may also mean that strong countries will intimidate or take advantage of weaker ones.

Therefore, even though we may find some rules hard to accept, we have to acknowledge that they are essential as they do contribute to better living. Without laws and legislation, freedom would not be possible.
