Karma and the Golden Rule

Karma is the belief that your behavior, good or bad toward others, will be returned upon you either directly or indirectly. The Golden Rule states: "Do unto others as you would have others do unto you." These rules promote the idea that ethical and equitable exchanges will be successful if at least one party is equitable and ethical.

This is dogma for an enslaved class of people who can't recognize when they are being deceived.

Until recently, the prevailing authority relied on public ignorance and complacency to bring the whole world to the economic precipice. Now working class people around the world are witnessing money bleeding out of their economies, never again to return to circulation among the masses.

The odd thing about people who believe in karma is that they selectively ignore one important aspect of karma in order to prove to themselves that karma actually works: Time. All it takes for karma to work is time. Those who believe in karma don't care that it might take beyond the length of their own lives for karma to prove that it works. Apparently, the waiting time is not as important as the toll that karma will take on one's enemies. This proves that karma does work, eventually. After all, everyone dies.

Karma and the Golden Rule serve a function more important than merely instilling morality onto ignorant children. It teaches you to believe that other people will naturally treat you the same way you treat them. This is completely false.

This has a serious detrimental effect on children who grow up to become givers who, thinking they will be eventually rewarded, throw away so much of their money to other people that they go into debt.

I personally know someone who is retired and earning a $32,000 pension, she has mortgages and loans on houses and vehicles used by her mother, adult unemployed children and grandchildren. She's behind on most of the payments and frequently bounces checks and gets overdraft charges. She can't say no, and she's terrified of karma. She has been so overly kind and generous that her family has come to expect it all the time as normal, and it's killing her.

People who believe in karma and live ignorantly by the Golden Rule are easily exploited, their kindness is squandered and never returned, because humans are selfish by nature. You must watch out for the types of people that surround the giver, especially if the giver is a parent, because the takers have never known self-sufficiency and they have come to perceive the giver as their primary source of sustenance and may likely react with violence or intimidation. Typically this kind of behavior arrives on stage at the Jerry Springer show.

The most damage a giver can do is to die, leaving nothing to a family of takers who don't know what else to do, so they turn to the state or to crime for sustenance. Such are the long-term effect of karma and the Golden Rule.
