The better statement is: Do unto others as they would have you do unto them.
Or Confucius’ original version: “Do not treat others as you would not have them treat you.” It doesn’t carry any obligation to go out of your way to do things, but simply not to treat others badly.
I agree that it is good. Apart from that double negation looks incredibly logic to me
I am logically challenged so I prefer the more simple “treat others as they want to be treated”
I tested to google it. Put this in the search box for google. with exclamation marks
“treat others as they want to be treated”
Seems to be rather popular too. The good thing is that one start to listen to the other
in another way than if one start with ones own take on how I don’t want to be treated by them.
Or if I force my own preferences on them.
By using these words “treat others as they want to be treated” one get a hint
that one have to find out how they want to be treated before one even try
to act towards them based on ones own preferences on treatment.
