The Golden Rule

:iconcarusmm:

The general meaning of the Golden Rule is okay. But if you want my silence, you will have to deliver me something for it.

Is there anything I am overlooking?

i made a little addition to the golden rule myself

if someone treats you wrongly, would you return the favor by doing the same to them? Or throw them a bone and show them how you would treat yourself?

takes patience

the only thing you can ever theoretically own is knowledge

it should be obvious that you would retain powerful knowledge within arm's reach.

conceiving knowledge is another story.

Yep. It's called natural selection, if you're going to be a fucking idiot then be prepared to face the consequences.

It's flawed, which I had a 2nd grader point out to me at work. He punched another kid, and I told him to remember the golden rule, and he's like I did, he hit me first, so I hot him back, so obviously he wants to be hit. I couldn't really argue with that.

Your case of the second grader proves the rule correct.

No, I'm trying really hard to be nice to people, because I am in such dire need of their approval. That's why I never say anything hurtful or controversial. :lol:

They don't like anyone's responses.

Have you seen their other thread, whining about how people who are ignorant of the forum rules shouldn't be penalized, but judged by their strength of character instead -as if you could measure such a thing online. And how all forms of authority actually exist to oppress and brainwash us, including the mods on this site, who I am pretty sure are volunteers?

Don't open an umbrella indoors under a ladder because you might break a mirror with a black cat.

I did so once, it wasn't pretty.

"It has always been, has it not? That a banana disregarded too long becomes brown and grim of appearance. Though the taste, while altered, is not rendered unpalatable. But if it is so, that you prefer bananas in their yellow (or even slightly green) state, and it falls upon you to distribute them among your colleagues, permit them to select the yellow bananas ahead of yourself, and take the brown ones for your own. For if circumstances were reversed, would you not desire that your fellow man afford you that first choice so that you may enjoy the yellow bananas instead of the brown?

"Of course, if your friends actually prefer the brown bananas, go nuts."
