We are bombarded by more and more rules and regulations, many of which are utterly useless and counterproductive.
This just serves to create still more unnecessary work, wastes energy and requires still more people to administer these rules and regulations and leaves fewer people to do the truly needed things in life, such as helping others, caring for the community, looking after people in care homes, speaking to customers, nurturing children, doing good work or even just answering the phone…
As Lao Tzu so wisely said, 2600 years ago,
The more laws and restrictions there are,
The poorer people become.
The more rules and regulations,
The more thieves and robbers.
So very true! Time to wake up!
