THE SILVER RULE IS THE ORIGIN OF COOPERATION
The only ‘shame’ is theft. The only oath, not to lie, cheat, steal or impose harm.
The summary of this ethic is: “Do not unto others as you would not want done unto you.” The anglo saxons were right and the Christians wrong.
MORALITY (RULE OF COOPERATION)
The silver rule is necessary for cooperation. The golden rule buys options on future cooperation – but encourages parasitism.
We act upon that which we have acquired without imposition of costs upon that which others have acquired by doing the same.
We act in concert to voluntarily produce common goods and services.
We warranty the truthfulness of our speech by due diligence in the cleansing of error, bias, imagination, wishful thinking, and deceit from our speech.
We insure one another against the imposition of costs by collective suppression of free riding by collective prosecution of those who impose costs upon others.
We invest in the construction of commons for the production of returns, and we deny one another the ability to impose costs upon them.
