There are two kinds of dangerous rules: Those that do not work and those that most people ignore.
Both lead to broken peace and stalled life. The usual way of creating rules – law – was to create fixed rules from top to down and enforce them with surveillance and threats of violence.
The more rules exist that cover more and more people, the more conflict and reduction of life take place. While this might have worked in ages when life-styles, professions and opinions were largely homogenous and the future closely resembled the past, it clearly shows itself counter-productive today. In addition the growing systemic inter-dependency of people, services and industries creates a dangerous stasis that cannot change fast enough to counter catastrophic rippling effects with insulation.
