One of the less pleasant trends I've seen in social media is the lack of recognition that actions can have consequences.  It never ceases to amaze me to see grown adults behave in a beastly way and be shocked, shocked that their actions have resulted in consequences that were almost entirely predictable.

One exercise that I think many people would benefit from would be to consider what someone else might do in return.  Rather than trying to guess what they might possibly do, consider what they can do in response to something done to them.

Reaction without thought is chaos

And MANNERS. I was brought up with manners (sometimes called common sense) and to respect others, no matter what the skin color, religion, and ethnicity.

I was brought up that way, too, and it's the way I brought up my son, yet he became the complete opposite, totally lacking in respect, civility and manners.  The fact that he ripped me off, his own father, for $2,500 says a lot about his dismal take on life.... to beg, borrow and steal to get by, no matter who it hurts.

Who's 'they' & what was 'done' to Leo?  That link gives no clue.

This is about cause and effect. Like not spitting into the wind because it'll come back and slobber all over you. If you drop a cup that cup will break, providing it isn't a plastic one. Dropping it is the cause. The cup breaking is the effect. Action and reaction. If you say or do something bad karma has a way of bringing it to your doorstep. Consequences go one of two ways, either its good or its bad, depending on the cause. People in general will usually respond in kind.

And often that's what's wrong with the world..... when the response to anger, aggression and/or violence is anger, aggression and/or violence.

Two wrongs don't make a right, but a lot of the world seems hell bent on an eye for an eye instead of turning the other cheek and walking away.

What the world needs now..... yeah, we all know that song, but sadly, not enough people sing it.

Its very simple. If ya can't take it don't dish it out.
