The Lego Law
Sociology doesn't have any social laws. In other words it can't absolutely predict human behavior. Perhaps the closest thing we have is the Rule of Reciprocity. If you do someone a favor, he or she will pretty much feel obliged to do one for you, and most people will, but not everyone. The jerks.
But I have developed a social law. I like to call it the Lego Law. And here is how it works. If several children are playing with legos and one of them builds a tower. The other kid will. . .
You guessed it; knock the tower down! It's a fact as predictable as gravity. Which come to think of it is why the tower always tumbles over. Cool! Two laws working together.
