An Idea Who's Time Has Come (Again)

What do we need today?! We need good ideas! Good ideas to help all people!

Well, at least the one's that want and need help, which is pretty much everybody I know.

One good idea is that ALL people, regardless of race, creed, color, sex and/or shoe-size should be able to pursue their own individual ideas of happiness, as long as those pursuits don't interfere with another's right to do the same. This is not a new idea. It's actually been around for quite some time I suspect. "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." (Because you ARE having them do unto you by doing unto them whether you realize it or not. But that's another story for another day.) "What you give is what you get." "Live and let live." That sort of thing...

Beyond that, is there really any other idea we need to worry about? If we just keep that one idea in-mind and try to never violate it - and when we do, make amends to correct the error in judgement as soon as possible - wouldn't things have to change for the better for everyone who sincerely believed and practiced the idea? And throw in the attitude of actually "helping" another pursue their dreams of happiness (instead of the current popular philosophy of SYNFTSTGANWATGOHDTRL) and well, seems to me like we'd have a golden pathway to heaven itself. Or at the very least, a better life.
