Golden Rule

Letter to the Editor and all Americans

Our Public Servants and legislators seem to be mostly interested in enriching themselves and being reelected. They make poor laws that cause people to be charged with crimes even when the people had no intent to break a law.

I suggest we should remind them of the Golden Rule, and remind them that the laws they make may apply to their grandchildren. Everyone who has been and will be are grandchildren. We should make law and enforce law as we would want it applied to our grandchildren.

The Golden Rule or ethic of reciprocity is a maxim, ethical code or morality that essentially states: One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself.

If they consider their grandchildren when making and enforcing law, we may be hopeful that they make and enforce better law.

I am hopeful that all citizens will remind their public servants of this.
