Many of our daily endeavors are governed by rules. And we have a duty to comply with those rules.
“Poetry Is Art, but Poetry Slams Are Sport, Bound by Pages of Rules,” The Wall Street Journal, April 8, 2016. Rigorous enforcement of rules in poetry slam contests.

While mundane, records retention policies and procedures are mandatory. Violations should be punished. If not, what does that say about other corporate policies and procedures? Are they optional as well?
