Never mind golden, we need plat­inum

The Hamilton Spectator - - OPINION - Re: Card­ing changes hand­cuff po­lice (May 15)

Great as the Golden Rule is, no mat­ter where you feel it orig­i­nates, it would help if we could move beyond its ego­cen­tric no­tion we should treat others as we want to be treated. It’s time for us to ad­here to the plat­inum rule — treat others as THEY want to be treated. Do­ing that shows gen­uine re­spect for others and can help us learn some­thing about be­ing em­pa­thetic. May do­ing so prove pos­si­ble, no mat­ter our faith, if any. Amy Soule, Hamil­ton
