Only I Am Allowed To Do It!

I am allowed to do it, because I am in command of things and you’re not. Wow, what arrogance! Legend goes that you should practice what you preach. Let’s leave aside the minister and gain some knowledge on why you shouldn’t tell people they are not allowed to do something and you are.
