The Golden Rule Is My Shield & Spear

"The Golden Rule is the principle of treating others as one's self would wish to be treated. It is a maxim that is found in many religions and cultures. The Golden Rule can be considered an ethic of reciprocity in some religions, although other religions treat it differently. The maxim may appear as either a positive or negative injunction governing conduct:

"One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself...

"One should not treat others in ways that one would not like to be treated...

"What you wish upon others, you wish upon yourself..."

"The idea dates at least to the early Confucian times (551–479 BC) according to Rushworth Kidder, who identifies that this concept appears prominently in Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Judaism, Taoism, Zoroastrianism, and 'the rest of the world's major religions'..."
