Being kind is self explanatory, but it is good to think about how minding our own business would virtually eliminate every societal ill — women would be free, racism eradicated, religion properly enjoyed privately, all aspects of sexuality unbothered, war prevented, hate crimes eliminated, misinformation crippled, and on and on and on…

To mind our own business and focus on our own space has epic, enormous benefit to the entire world.

And to be clear, minding our business does NOT mean ignoring suffering and injustice. That’s why the first rule is kindness.

Minding our business services kindness by preventing the imposition of personal bigotry when helping others.

And in the ideal, if everyone minded their own business there’d be little suffering and injustice to begin with.

That’s it.
