Rule: v. to control with demanded behaviors which are frequently recorded and enforced and obeyed for safety and/or orderliness and/or predictable similarity and/or social bonding
Rules are made to create a sense of orderliness, safety, predictability, and social bonding. Rules are frequently recorded and enforced by an authority who tries to control human behavior in acceptable ways.
The hardest rules to enforce are those for social etiquette because they vary greatly depending on the social group which you are talking about. This is especially true when comparing different cultures with different rules for social behavior.
The most challenging part about organizational rules is that they are frequently not absolute rules and there are plenty of exceptions to them which must be understood and tolerated.
The customer is always right is a perfect example of an absolute rule which isn’t really absolute. The customer may have intentionally damaged a product, may have used it three or four times such as clothes and then decided to return it for a refund, and may have used the product improperly and gotten terrible results.
Customer negligence or fraudulent deception may be the real reason for wanting a refund and organizational rules must be made to try and minimize the damage to profits in the organization resulting from these deviant untrustworthy customers. Fortunately computer software will be so good that a customer who tries to get too many refunds for products can be stopped after a handful of returns but I don’t know of any company which is doing this currently.
Government bureaucracy is a perfect example of absolute rules or laws which should not be absolute because they are far removed from reality in many situations or there are plenty of real world exceptions to these rules which make them unjust for large minorities. One size fits all is simply a stupid rule to have in the efficient governing of humans who are basically different in their needs and desires.
The larger the government or the more rules it has the LESS JUST an organization it becomes because it crushes healthy minorities in its stupid zeal to make everyone equal. Yes, it is dysfunctional communism or socialism as an end product.
Big government tries to change humans into a mass of homogeneous shit!!!!!! Yes, big food and drug corporations are also guilty of trying to change food and drugs into a mass of unhealthy shit to be consumed by a mass of equally unhealthy humans.
Humans are getting increasingly irresponsible and deviant in their behavior so government rules must be made to rehabilitate or save humans from their irresponsibility and deviance with armies of government case workers. Wrong! Teach impressionable young minds in elementary school a functional secular moral code and they will impulsively interact peacefully with other humans when they get older and not be so irresponsible, deviant, and socially dysfunctional. They will also demand a more just government and save it from a tyrannical inevitable takeover.
I can go on and on writing about real solutions to human, national, and international problems but I don’t want to bore you if it doesn’t interest you.
