Unwise Words 4 – The Golden Rule
October 6, 2008

I think “do to others what they would have you do to them” would be a better rule.  Everyone has different life philosophies and principles, and on a more concrete level, different behaviours and mannerisms.  Would it not be ignorant and perhaps self-righteous to assume that others want to be treated the way that you do?  It’s similar to the gift-buying principle – buy a gift that the person, not you, would like to receive.
