self test A on the above             self test B on the above   


I view society, to some extent, as threatening my security and well-being—so I take precautions to minimize risks.  I often ask “Will someone hurt me if I do this?” Far from wanting to interact with and trust them, I generally fear strangers, especially those who seem clearly different.  I lock the door to my house at night. I own a gun to protect myself and loved ones should the need arise.  I try to align myself with those who have power.  I believe those who break laws should expect harsh punishment—especially if they are poor or powerless.


I see all humans as worthy of special treatment. I believe society would work best if all people obeyed The Golden Rule: that is, treat others as you would want them to treat you. I don’t lie, cheat, steal, discriminate, or arbitrarily restrict, because I don’t want people doing this to me. If I see someone suffering, beyond empathizing / feeling their pain, I give them compassion. If I see someone in need, I practice a “village ethic of mutual help”: I help them because someday I may similarly need help from someone.
