Don’t Follow Stupid Rules
I told my kids when they went to school, “Look, kids, follow the rules, but don’t follow stupid rules.” Well, who decides if they’re stupid?
 
That’s a hard question because you should follow the rules most of the time. But now and then, the rules get pathological, and you have to stand up. If you’re going to stand up and break a rule, think about it.
 
You have to be willing to take the consequences. There are consequences to not standing up to stupid rules too.
 
And if you think that those consequences are lesser, then you suffer from the delusion that there’s an easy path through life.
