“Do unto others as you would have them do unto you”
“Treat other people the way you would like to be treated”
I think this is very bad advice. Instead, I’d advise: “Treat people the way they would like to be treated.”
Who’s to say that the way you would like to be treated is how other people would like to be treated? Seems like a very self-centric POV. If I treated people the way I liked to be treated I’d have far fewer friends.
If you take my advice, then you’ll have to try and figure out what other people want. That’s a very useful exercise and requires a lot more thought than just assuming everyone is like you.
