    Glad to see the NAP show up here. I just mentioned it in the comments of the recent post: Don’t confuse legality with morality.

    I just came across an interesting thought (article) moments ago about the Golden Rule while reading arguments against the NAP. The argument was made that while the GR is a solid foundation to build from there is a fundamental flaw with it. “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you” works as long as the individual does not wish to be victimized and therefore victimizes others. This is a bit of a stretch, I believe most individuals do not prefer to be victimized, but I thought I’d share that finding.

      The linked article is interesting. For the individual you mentioned, it sounds like their mantra is “Do unto others before they do it to you.”

        Unfortunately, I believe there is a large number of people out there with that mentality.
