Risk. Rebellion. Challenging the status quo.
These are frequent themes on this site.
So what happens if you shelve all of these things?
What happens if you actually follow the rules?
What happens if you follow every single law, byline and government health and safety recommendation to the letter?
Intriguingly, one man is finding out.
Have a look at what James is up to – it’s more interesting than it sounds!
One month without breaking a single rule, doing exactly as he is told…
I’m going to try and live a whole month abiding by every law, every government guideline and every piece of official advice I can find.
First off why? Well, I’ll be straight, I’d just like to see what happens. I don’t have some kind of anarchist agenda and I don’t want to smash the state. Nor do I have a dyed in the wool belief that we’re all inherently sensible and can be left completely to our own devices. I am however really interested in how we behave with and without rules. Where does personal responsibility come into it? Why do we obey them and why do we break them? Is it actually good for us to play by the rules and even is it possible to do so?
Will I be healthier, happier, fitter and better balanced or just become indescribably dull?
