We all learned it in Kindergarden: the golden rule. Treat others the way you want to be treated. As five-year-olds we are given many concrete examples of what this means and what this looks like. As adults it seems this rule can often be forgotten.

She called home before the holidays and said she wouldn't be home for Christmas. Some of the family members were amazed she'd "do that" to the family. Didn't she know better? Everyone knew better than anyone the holidays were a time for family and that she should be home.

A long time ago there was a remarkable man, a man who said that might does not make right, that the weak have a strength the strong do not have, and that what we call "justice" is often really injustice. He was a man who was condemned by traditional conservative society.
