Existentialist Question

If there is no God, and man is totally free, then why must one "do to others as you would have them do unto you"?

(Note - if it is recognized that one is free and that one just must accept responsibility and consequences, ... then if one is willing to accept the consequences, then must one "do unto others what they would have others do to them?)

  1. If an ethicist falls in the woods... ;-)

    I'm confused by your question. Did someone state that we must live by the ethic of reciprocity?
