Social norms, Rules, Regulations

April 20, 2010 1:06pm CST
We are living in a social frame. There are certain social norms, rules and regulations with which we never compromise. But in my view all these norms, rules and regulations are made to make our life easy and happy. Is it true that these are made for us, we are not made for these. In case these start making our life hard and even to the extent of costing someone his or her life, should we not go against them?

A social problem as old as man, from the very beginning when the first two strangers met, a social frame was born. It's the way our world works, such as it is. Now we are ruled by Technology and the social rules and regulations lag far behind to we will experience many changes in the times to come.

To those who do not follow the social norms we call it a deviant behavior. That's all I can say... I cannot understand into what do you mean by rules and regulations which we never compromise and to make our life easy and happy...

There is a reason why human beings have brains. we have brains to do that which make sense...use of common sense...if something does not make sense to a right thinking member of the society, then it is not good enough. Bottom line? commonsense.

We made the social norms. We just don't recognize it. It's when the things that we see are acceptable as a social truth. If we see something offending or out of this world, we question it because It's not part of our social norms. But if more and more people accepts it then it can become a part of our social norm.
