Our species is in trouble because it’s members habitually insist on telling other members how to do something or what to believe instead of focusing on what’s supposed to happen. Just imagine a home where the family rules were boiled down to one: “does this action increase the amount of love in the household?” Or a school where teacher performance is measured by: “does this activity enhance the ability of kids to learn and think independently and act for the common good?” Or a religion or political party where dogma and ideology are reduced to: “do not do unto others what you would not have them do unto you.” Wouldn’t the world be a better place if people stopped trying to make everyone else fit into their notion of what a person should do and be? So here I am, one more person telling everyone what they ought to do!
