Rules (speaking in the human sense) were developed since Adam first met Eve, and have been evolving ever since. Many such rules eventually become laws, though most are first subsumed as "natural" behavioralism.
Rules (speaking in the theistic sense) are dictated by a Higher Moral Being. These rules become inexorably encrusted with age and superstition.
Rules (speaking in the practical sense) are "what works for the time, and people of that time."
So: Are rules inherently bad?
If not, then can rules justifiably change?
