Follow the golden rule; Letters.

MY Very Best Wishes go to You and Yours, for a Happy Christmas, and a Peaceful and Prosperous New Year.

As on our Christmas cards, this is not subject to negotiation, or restricted to those whose actions, omissions or failures, might possibly meet with my approval.

I wish no extra taxes upon you, and I seek no subsidies from you.

I have my modest list of favourite worthy charitable causes, volunteering time and money, and I do try to enjoy success in others, without any envy, mostly, even on the sports field.

We remain free to exchange our ideas and opinions, and we hope to persuade by logical argument, without fear, and without rancour, mostly.

It is normal to think well of others. If we have not yet succeeded to persuade others to our own points of view, then we are still not free to hate, murder, bomb, or assassinate, even such disagreeable people.

That is not the way we live well, in an over-crowded world.

Our business, political, and religious leaders, can lead by example, and state their points by logical arguments. Threats, insults, and injury, will fail to make true converts.

Our Golden Rule is shared by many religions, and reminds us to do unto others as we would be done by.
