A story in which sanity prevails


"When we are young, we follow the rules we are given by our parents without knowing the purpose behind those rules. As we grow older, we begin to see the purpose, and are willing to break them where they no longer serve that purpose. Likewise our culture lives by certain rules. For the most part people do not understand the full purpose of those rules, but as our culture matures they will grow to understand them and therefore apply them with greater nuance, and where appropriate be willing to update them."

This story has several advantages.
