Do to others as you would have others do to you

Do to others as you would have others do to you. We need to understand the needs and wants of others and communicate about that in positive ways. I thought that is what democracy is supposed to be about.

But it is now obvious that some of the very wealthy don't want to do that. They could but they don't. The use their wealth and power to help themselves without understanding the needs of others, not even trying to be fair. I guess this is called "free enterprise". The best competitors get more than their share. But some those who don't have the resources - or good health - to do very well do not believe that they are being treated fairly. Sometimes they get very angry and do something very violent. We need a better system than that. I grew up in a small village where I did feel that we could work together and be fair to each other. I think that Hawaii may be a small enough culture that many more can feel that way today.
