The “Golden Rule” is Messed Up

The golden rule, translated in so many ways, basically says, “Do unto others as you would have others do unto you.” But perhaps the way I would prefer to be “unto”ed might not be the same way that you would prefer. Let’s clarify the golden rule to, “Do unto others as they would prefer to be untoed.” or…

“Do not do unto others as you would expect they should do unto you. Their tastes may not be the same.”
– George Bernard Shaw

Or…

“ I will treat others as I like to be treated; I will treat them as individuals, as people,… I will take time to get to know them, to respect their ways, their limitations, even as I expect others to have patience with my own weaknesses.”
–Eric Butterworth
