Live and let live

If the world is only black and white without shades of gray, then life will be difficult. Unless of course each one of us has our own individual sets of black and white. What is an absolute black for me, might not be so for another, in fact it might even be the absolute opposite. So then would there being grays in this world really mean that I have one set of standards for myself and another for others?
And if the world only had shades of gray, without any absolutes, we would flounder, won't we? Be buffetted in one direction by one strong current and in an absolutely oppposite direction by another. That doesn't sound too good.
I think it would be easier to just live by one's own rules and allow others to do the same.
Having solved my life's biggest problems, I shall now get back to doing what I do best--watch TV

You just described chaos. What happens if your rules and my rules both work in opposite ways causing the same strong currents in opposite directions? That's where the greys come in, toning down the whites and the darks by setting common ground for each of us to comprehend and fall in line. But it does give each of us some leeway to do what we do best!
Watching KKSBKBT? or KGGK?

Had enough already of of all K serials, thank you. Desperate housewives has finally come to India so trying to figure out what the fuss is about.
And chaos is good. Organisations and organised societies are a killer.
