I love the "Do unto others as you would have them do to you" tenet. It's a keeper.
"The Golden Rule" as it is also known, is the foundation for every civilized relationship, organization, collaborative, government and/or group in the wide world.
"Do unto others as you would have them do to you."
It's a philosophy so simple, logical and compelling that not subscribing to it is absolutely absurd. Not to mention really, really mean and dumb.

Let's all give it a whirl for a while and see where it gets us, Capise? Peace out, y'all. #StopHatingOthers #LetsGetAlong #TreatOthersWithKindness

Gospel Mt 7:6, 12-14 Jesus said to his disciples: "Do not give what is holy to dogs, or throw your pearls before swine, lest they trample them underfoot, and turn and tear you to pieces.
