This paper discusses what rules are and why they are made. The paper also looks at examples of personal rules and discusses what a world without rules would be like. The paper shows how rules are essential in order to ensure that sanity and discipline prevail in a society rather than chaos and extreme disorder.

From the Paper:

"Rule can be defined as a governing power or its possession or use by someone who has the authority to do so. It can also be explained as an authoritative direction for conduct or procedure specifically for (a) any of the regulations governing procedure in a legislative body (b) a principle of conduct observed by members of a group (c) a code of principles for the conduct of religious services or activities. Some sources however claim that rules can be defined as an established standard or habit of behavior or something that generally prevails or obtains. There are a number of reasons of course why rules are made in the first place. For one thing rules are formulated in order to maintain discipline and semblance of order in a society, which is of course the most obvious reason of all. One only shudders to think what would happen in any society without the presence of rules in that particular culture or community."
