Should one always be obedient under all circumstances?The children are expected to be obedient to their parents, the students are expected to be obedient to their teachers and the employees are expected to be obedient to their bosses. Any deviance from the set norms is considered indiscipline. The employer organizations develop their well defined conduct rules. Even for the lawmakers i.e. the elected representatives, conduct rules and a disciplinary mechanism exist.
The obedience of the system or 'follow the instruction' syndrome prevails more predominately in the defense forces. On a lighter note, it is said that the soldiers are expected to jump from a high flying plane even without a parachute if commanded to do so.
However, nowadays the children and students have started questioning the dictates. They want to know the reasons or logic behind the instructions, in case it appears to them that the same has become irrelevant.
