Evolution of Golden Rule from Confucius to "Con"gress (Trump, Obama, EU)

Ahoy from Amoy (Xiamen, China)!

Chinese invented paper so they could invent paperwork and Red Tape (hence the name Red China). 

Chinese also invented the "Golden Rule," though Confucius' version  differed from Jesus Christ's. Confucius said "don't do to others"; Jesus said "do to others". Both have pros and cons. I'm not always keen on being done to. So with no further ado:

Evolution of Golden Rule from Confucius to "Con"gress 

Confucius' Golden Rule: Do not do to others what you don’t want done to you. 己所不欲,并非他人所不欲 

Jesus Christ's Golden Rule: Do to others what you want done to you.你们愿意人怎样带你们,你们也要怎样待人

Modern Businesses' Golden Rule (Trump): Those with gold make the rules. 谁拥有黄金谁制定规则

Modern Bureaucracy's Golden Rule (Obama, "Con"gress, EU): 
Those who make the rules get the gold. 谁谁制定规则抓住黄金

Enjoy Amoy!
