Jokes on us. We don't live long enough to learn all the laws and rules to the game of life. It's not like the laws and rules are required learning in schools. Heck, if we locked up all the current lawmakers and did not let them out until they collectively wrote down from memory all the existing laws word for word, do you honestly think they would live long enough to accomplish the task?

Don't know all the existing laws? Why pay people to make new ones?

Seems the ones playing better than anyone else aren't playing by the same rules, just constantly distracting those who are trying to.

But, I could be wrong.

Einstein was not referring to actuall laws, he was simply referring to 'rules of the game'. And that game is LIFE.
- And the rules are, that there is no rules. Life is just a ride hehehe

Here's my favourite...

"I am convinced there is only one way to eliminate these grave evils, namely through the establishment of a socialist economy, accompanied by an educational system which would be oriented toward social goals. In such an economy, the means of production are owned by society itself and are utilized in a planned fashion. A planned economy, which adjusts production to the needs of the community, would distribute the work to be done among all those able to work and would guarantee a livelihood to every man, woman, and child. The education of the individual, in addition to promoting his own innate abilities, would attempt to develop in him a sense of responsibility for his fellow men in place of the glorification of power and success in our present society."

Albert Einstein from 'Why Socialism'.

Generally when I read posts like this I agree with a few and then find some basic inconsistencies within the rules and/or disagree with probably 1/2 of them.
But holy crap! I agree with all of them! Wow. Not sure whether Einstein was the direct author/creator of those, but they're all good rules.

I find that the modern politically correct world makes us break almost all of these constantly.

The world has driven most of us to be slaves of debt and fear, and we do the same (non-value building) things over and over again trying to not make mistakes (lose our job!) and purely living for the future, not the present.

Religion strips the spirituality and tenacity from us.

I challenge everyone to really think hard and apply these rules to your life. Watch Discovery channel instead of the crap you're watching now. Become more green. Fix stuff, read books how to, dont throw stuff out. Talk to your neighbours. Be late for work, because you stopped and actually smelled some flowers.

Go read some conspiracy forums. Oh wait, you are.
