people as a society have been conditioned to follow the laws and rules over the ages...
laws / rules were made consequences were given for breaking those laws so therefore the majority of the people decided to follow them and stay out of trouble.
I think the author of this thread might be trying to ask, what in our "minds" or "hearts" makes us follow the rules ?
I don't know that I can even take a guess at that one... for myself, growing up, I was affraid of my dad, I knew that if I broke the rules or got into trouble that I would have to answer to him.
