Quote: we need a room where anything can be said, and it stays in the room. get your feeling hurt, who cares
I'm curious - why do you think we need a "room" like that? What would be the positives of life in such a 'room?'
Over my life, it seems more and more people are acting as if we already live in such a room, and, generally speaking, things don't seem to me to be improving.
So far as I an aware, all of the wold's significant philosophers, ethicists and spiritual movements have embraced the Golden Rule as the benchmark of 'civilized' behavior - Judaism, Christianity, Islam, Buddhism, Hinduism, and Taoism come immediately to mind.
Isn't such a 'do anything room and the hell with the other guy' the negation of the Golden Rule?
Is the Golden Rule obsolete? ======================================================== There once was an interesting forum with a fellow who loudly proclaimed the need for a "room" where if you got your feeling hurt, no one should care. That same fellow seemed to care greatly that another fellow expressed disdain for many of the first fellow's views.
Someone once said: "be careful of what you wish for - you might just get it."
