The Golden Rule Needs Some Iron

.

I have been working steadily on this blog post,  and it has a lot of new material.  New pics, new book references, new philosophical arguments.  So I thought it was time to re-blog it.  Click on “view original” below the pics…..  but before you do that…..

I issue a 1-MINUTE CHALLENGE.  Can you spare just 1 minute for your own self-improvement,  for a step toward a better life, and a better world?  That is what philosophy can do for you.  Spend just 1 minute browsing the graphics below,  find one that interests you,  and go read the text surrounding that graphic.  It is my hope that you will find encouragement and inspiration in what you read,  and that you will want to read more of the blog.  If you have a blog,  leave a link in the comments,  so I and others can find our way to it.  Thanks!!

Some readers will think this writing is too long, some will utterly reject its ideas, some will consider it heretical, in either a religious or political way.  But other readers will learn something useful from this writing, and some will be encouraged that there is a writer who has a view of this issue that is similar to their own, and who had the courage to “put it out there” where anyone can read it.  But that is about the limits of my courage, which may sound the trumpet-call of retreat at any moment.  So read this piece while it is still here….. it may disappear at any time.  For that matter…
