Rules are...

Conservative answer - Good. They stop evil people from doing bad things.

Liberal answer - Good. They stop powerful people from doing bad things.

Libertarian answer - Bad. "Bad" people ignore the rules. The only thing rules do accomplish is to restrict the freedom of the law-abiding segment of the population—those poor naive souls who honestly believe rules are going to make them safe. Without rules, everyone is responsible for their own safety, which actually makes everyone more secure, because then everybody always keeps their guard up.

Communist answer - Good. They force everyone into one cultural mindset.
