Is the saying "rules are made to be broken" correct?

  • Yes is the correct answer

    It depends on what rules really. All laws are make to be kept, But rules are made to be broken, Its the easiest distinction you need rules are not solid, Its the very reason that governments don't make 'rules' they make something that actually has a solid structure like 'laws'.

  • Yes and No

    For the majority, I believe that certain rules are made to be broken, such as exact measurements in recipes or rules that may prevent us from knowledge. However, there are rules that are meant to be in place, like not killing others or unspoken courtesy rules. If the rules are too constricting, then, depending if it is violating some natural born right or not, it is fine to break the rules.

  • Because rules are stupid

  • Rules are meant to be broken.

    If the rules are put in place by people with authority in order to restrain ideals and keep them in power, then rules must be broken in order to allow ideals to spread and thus encourage principles of freedom and creativity. If the rules are there to discourage ideals that are immoral or go against what is acceptable for us as people, then they must be broken eventually. This is to keep reminding us of our ideals and also that everything changes in due time.

  • The Silent Majority

    Firstly, I refuse to address any argument containing "john cena" as this is not an argument.

    Secondly, in regards to those who claim that the saying is true because they believe it right to break rules on occasion:
    A) That argument is irrelevant because,
    B) The saying is in not saying that "some rules should be broken" thus,
    C) Just because you personally feel that breaking certain rules is okay, it does not mean that every rule was intended to be broken.

    Now, AntagonistOne, I shall address your argument.

    1) Yes, morals are irrelevant in this discussion.
    2) You describe what a rule is, however the saying does not refer to the specific rule, but rather the intent of the rule, therefore, describing what a rule is, bears no relevancy in this discussion.
    3) Using the scenario you provide "Transgressions against people and property occurred." I will demonstrate that the intent of a rule is not for it to be broken.
    4) "The transgression (not a crime yet, not a rule violation yet) is acknowledged as against the greater good, or some equivalent standard. Those responsible make a rule to acknowledge that." The next part is where you go awry.
    5) The rule is not "ready and waiting for the next transgressor," it is declared to deter any future transgressors.
    6) The purpose of the punishments is to demonstrate what can occur if one were to commit the crime, thus deterring any future transgressors
    7) Practically speaking, rules are broken, hence punishments are dealt. However, when the rules are created, they are intended to be a proclamation against the transgression, and a deterrent for any future transgressors.
    8) Your last point demonstrates this, as those dealing with the law, only deal with the practicality of it, they only deal with the worst case scenarios. They don't deal with the vast majority of people, for which the rule functioned as intended, as a deterrent.
    9) What this argument comes down to is intent, not worst case scenarios. Those advocating yes, focus on the vast minority of cases in which the rule failed, and was thus broken. That does not mean that the majority of rules were intended to function this way.
    10 The saying that "rules are made to be broken" is inherently false, as the intent of the rule was to act as a deterrent, not as a reaction, and indeed, in the vast majority of cases, rules function as they were "made to," therefore, let it be incontrovertibly understood, that:

    No, Rules are not made to be broken.

  • Hells to the na

    John cena is not a reason and although some of y'all do present a good argument, it's just not true. Just because people break the rules doesn't mean people have to break the rules for rules to exist. If there were no rules there would be nothing for people to break and so people could do anything. Although maybe some rules are created because people do things that other people consider to be not cool, other's are created because it's obvious that nobody should ever do them.

  • No They Were Not

    Rules are meant to be followed because of previous problems the rules were made for. If they were meant to be broken there would be no rules in the first place and they would be made pointless. If rules were made to be broken there'd be no fair trials, overlooked murder, and just pure chaos.

  • Is the saying "rules are made to be broken" correct?

    If rules were made to be broken they wouldn't be rules....Rules are NOT MADE to be broken the statement makes no logical sense......Hey let's make it a rule that all our employees should be in at 9AM just so they can break that rule...Sounds silly when you say it that way

  • No, not most of the time.

    In general, the rules are there to keep the peace and make sure that everything runs smoothly. The rules are essential to make sure things go as planned and stuff does not get out of control. Some rules do need to be broken to make the place better, but they were not made to be broken.

Hey, why we can say "rules are meant to be broken" But, not "rules are supposed to be broken"?
