Wow. Do people really use the “golden rule” in such a convoluted way?? I always saw it in a much more general way. Because, you know, parents say that when we’re kids. So I looked at it kind of like if you don’t want people to be an a**hole to you, don’t be one to them. If I yell at someone, I’ve just given them permission to yell back. That sort of thing. Man, humans can make almost anything convoluted. Sometimes I feel like I’m on the wrong planet. :)
