  1. Thanks, Karl. It’s really more than just being nice to one another, imo. It means to not do harm to others, for example torture. So in other words it means to not do “evil” is more important than doing “good”. Hope that makes sense. Another example is some or even most corporations do some things “good” such as donating to charities (for tax reasons), but they also engage in “evil” (ripping off tax payers, mistreating their workers, etc.).

  2. Not really about this post but your “Golden Rule” quote … good start for people to try and be nice to other people. But then for those who feel like this endorses applying their own moral standards to others, G. B. Shaw’s variant is also enlightening:
    “Do not do unto others as you would that they should do unto you. Their tastes may not be the same.”

  3. Chronikon, glad you enjoyed it, too.

    Every now and again I throw in something like this to take a break from all the death and destruction news that is posted here daily.

    Our little blue planet is so beautiful. Maybe this will inspire a few people to take their cameras out and shoot their part of the world.
