Modern day Hippie??


I learned in a philosophy class, a long time ago, that you can evaluate whether or not your actions are good by applying it to all of the world, and imagining what the total outcome would be….or something like that. So, for example, if everyone committed murder, the outcome would be we’d all be dead. Or if everyone robbed someone, we’d all be getting robbed. This argument probably has some flaws, but I think the basic idea can be well received by anyone. My thought is, we should all try to make others around us happy. If we all did that, we’d all be happy. It’s wishful thinking, but so many of us don’t know how to make ourselves happy, so if we focused on others, it would all workout. Does this make me a hippie? Lol
