My Bubie says that as soon as we are big enough to talk and to understand we are told what is acceptable and what is not. These are rules. Sometimes they are written down and sometimes we are just told them, orally. Each group and every society have a set of rules that the people are expected to follow. Usually, if you don’t follow the rules you get punished. That is why most people follow the rules. Some people follow the rules because they understand that it is good for them and for others.
I asked my Bubie if there was ever a time when a person shouldn’t follow the rules and how would they know if it was that time or not? My Bubie told me that was a good question but not an easy one to answer and then she told me the following story.
