70. I also referenced the Wikipedia article on “The Golden Rule”
Edited on Tue Apr-19-11 11:42 AM by OKIsItJustMe
The article differentiates between the “Silver Rule” and the “Golden Rule.”



The Golden Rule or ethic of reciprocity is a maxim, ethical code, or morality that essentially states either of the following:
  1. One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself (positive form)
  2. One should not treat others in ways that one would not like to be treated (negative/prohibitive form, also called the Silver Rule)


The “Silver Rule” is relatively common in “antiquity.” The “Golden Rule” is not.
