The Golden Rule by Cataclysm-X The Golden Rule by Cataclysm-X
I don't support to treat people the way I am being treated.
I support to treat people the way I want to be treated if I were in the same situation.

Meaning: with respect!

What about you?

Treat others only as you consent to being treated in the same situation.
The Golden Rule

I was surprised to find out no-one made a stamp about the Golden Rule, a very common but underrated philosophical rule known by many, but alas practiced by far less people than it should.

I was very sad to discover that many of my devwatchers have been discriminated at least once in their life. (You could check my poll for many examples and personal stories.) No-one should be treated differently just for what they are.

After all: it doesn't matter what culture you come from. It doesn't matter what your beliefs are, whether you believe in God, Allah, Buddha or yourself for that matter. Who cares if you are thin or overweighted; if your skin colour is different than mine; if you're male, female, small, tall, beautiful, imperfect, wear glasses, silly shoes; listen to whatever kind of music you like to listen to; your whole being.

In the end, I will love and treat you for who you are.

All I'm asking you is to treat me and anyone else with respect too.

(I would make a great hippie, I know. Who cares if I was a hippie anyway :lol: that's the whole point, people!)

Other stamp I've made:


There have been a few discussions about what this rule means when talking about masochists (explanation can be found here) for instance. Well... I guess that means there should be a few exceptions about this rule. The most important thing is to treat people with respect, and don't offend or hurt them in any way possible.

I am aware it's impossible to make this rule work for everyone, but that doesn't mean we couldn't try to make this world a better place.
