  • "Do unto others as you would have done unto you" doesn't necessarily refer to actions, although it can. It's more often about meta-actions.

    In the case you cited, the Golden Rule doesn't mean "you have to include cc: lines because that's what the other person wants". It does mean "listen to the other person's concerns and ideas about the subject, just as you would want them to listen to yours."

  • You're right, it all comes down to the premise. The problem is, the golden rule is from the Bible. Christians are supposed to all want the same thing, God's will. Unfortunately, this doesn't apply to our culture -- we all want what's best for ourselves.
