Social acceptability is an unnatural force. Though it is intertwined with the principle of consideration for others, it works directly against our individuality.
Without clearly defined laws, social acceptability norms exist merely for the sake of gossip, and for the sake of the feeling of self-righteousness.
Eccentric behaviour is that which comes about when one leaves social acceptability to take care of itself.
However, in considering others—in reversing the roles hypothetically—we find that we need to ask permission when in doubt.
We live in an age in which hackers are revered simply because they violate social acceptability norms which do not affect us.
If hacking becomes socially acceptable, then taking permission in general life, does too. In fact, it might become expected.
