We were raised to not be afraid,

to be responsible, and have the ability to handle our own problems.
We learned that the society we lived in had laws and we were taught to adhere to those laws or face the consequences. There were also the unspoken rules, respect your elders, hold a door open for the ladies, don’t hit girls, and don’t swear in front of Mom.

We lived by the rules, didn’t seem that difficult. Crossing Guards

Locks only stop honest thieves.

Laws and rules you say? I flew MATS (Military Air Transport Service) when it was called the DOD airline '50s/'60s. Lots of civilians and dependents. Many women and children. I lived in a society of laws and rules, serving in a military of strict laws and rules, flying airplanes controlled by a plethora of checklists, procedures, decision tables and such. Laws and rules within laws and rules within laws and rules - three deep. It was a comfortable existence. I always knew what to expect from society and what society expected of me. Left me free to deal with the unexpected from the airplane and nature.
