The Ultimate Free for All
From our youngest years onward, we learn quickly that there are rules in life.
From not taking what isn’t ours to not going where we’re not allowed, rules start small (with big implications) and becoming increasingly more specific. Failure to follow these rules results in punishment, and trouble recognizing these rules and all their nuances can lead to social ridicule.
That being said, who doesn’t dream about breaking the rules, or just bending them a little, every now and then? Just think of how convenient that would be.
And how dangerous.
Chaos is the fundamental opposite of all organized societies. Many movies and works of fiction present us with the idea of a town, country, or world that has descended into complete pandemonium, specifically to show us exactly what could happen when the rules don’t matter anymore and laws can’t be enforced.
