Answer for question 4366.

If there were no rules in life, and you could be as outrageous as you wanted to be, what would you do?
Whenever two or more people (maybe when ever two or more living creatures) interact, rules will happen. I can imagine a situation where no rules are enforced. It is called anarchy and i rather like the idea in principle. Of course, in the total absence of enforceable rules, i and others would have to be especially careful to behave compassionately, cooperatively, non-violently and unselfishly unless these behaviors happen to come naturally, which Buddhists and Taoists are supposed to believe is the case. Since, outrageousness is defined by rules, the absence of rules would mean that nobody, by definition, could do anything outrageous.
