Dion de Castro Posted over 1 year ago Barry Schwartz: Our loss of wisdom Ok, so there are rules and there are rules. Some rules such as those embedded in your countries constitution. Then there are rules in your home (such as rules around parenting). One can probably list ten rules that are part of our everyday lives without much thought. Rules will be part of our lives if we like it or not. This does not mean that rules cannot be changed , amended or abolished. I believe that rules, depending on the impact or affect on the situation or context should be reviewed accordingly. This could mean a country vote on a new law that effects many or be a simple thing as talking with your spouse about how to change the rules of parenting a child.
