Sharing My World- September 17, 2018

What Is Your Favorite Beverage?  (for those who really dislike “favorite” questions, hey, time to time, one just pops in and will not be denied).

Coffee.

What Is Your Interpretation of ‘The Golden Rule”?  Are there ramifications to breaking it?

Golden Rule

“Do unto others as you would have done unto you.” Matthew 7:12

I always thought it was about empathy. Others call it the Rule of Reciprocity. Some people say it’s the only life rule you need.

Some find it flawed logic. See How the Golden Rule Makes Us Dumb.

Personally, I think it’s a good goal, but not useful in every situation. I know in law there are times you have to treat others even better than you would treat yourself. As for ramifications, nah. There are too many unemphatic people in this world for there to be ramifications.

 

Sunrise person or sunset person?

Either.

Do people in modern society anthropomorphize animals too much?

Nah. Of course not. I don’t know what you’re even talking about… and maybe, if we do, we learned it from you, Ancient Egypt. We learned it all from you.

What Were You Grateful For During the Past Week?

First Responders.

  1. Such interesting answers! I like your perspective on the Golden Rule, and yes, I suppose ancient Egypt did contribute to anthropomorphism to a great degree. And yay for the First Responders! Such brave people! 🙂
