Freedom is to rule what a flame is to an iceberg. Enemies or friends, different people have different views on this debate. Some believe that rules and laws kill the soul of freedom in the modern society. However, I believe that it is the regulations that protect the surroundings of freedom and civil rights indeed.
Frankly, drawing up too many rules and laws without limitations will obstruct the path of seeking freedom. Namely, people will not pursue freedom with the heavy loss of other benefits, even the loss of their lives. However, this situation only occurs in rare conditions like warfare or regime shift. In fact, reasonable regulations protect rather than destroy freedom.
When it comes to how rules and laws guarantee people ‘s freedom, there are three ways obviously. Firstly, freedom, with a fancy name, is a relative and subtle thing, which can never be ascertained by certain definitions and conditions. No absolute freedom results in impossibility to pursue absolute freedom. Secondly, absolute freedom will bring about a weird situation that people who focus on their own benefits would demolish others’ benefits if no regulation is established in society. In other words, most rules and laws play roles in shielding the public order and benefits. Lastly, laws and rules also have culturalimplications in a general view. At least, they should be regarded as human ‘s legacy, historically and traditionally.
All in all, without laws and rules, society will be in chaos undoubtedly. To seek more freedom, we should try to adapt to all the sound rules as a compromise at first.
