Organized Chaos

Good Essays
Society, on the outside, is organized chaos. Take Chicago for instance, if we removed rules and time, it would be in turmoil. Crime, chaos, disorder; the city would not last more than aday. If we add in laws, and enforced them with police, much of that chaos would subside. However, the city would still crumble, and again, would die within the first 24 hours. The fundamental rule which keeps a society together is time. Time holds society together, but in doing so controls what we can and cannot achieve in our short lives.
