Three judgments of a standard of conduct:

  • Wrong, when I expect it of others
  • Wrong, when I push it on others
  • Right, when I live it and accept the outcome
The reading said that expectation leads to resentments. Agreed, when it is only I being judgemental. But take the “I” out of “expectation” and you get “EXPECTATON”, a giant metal robot heedlessly destroying everything in its path. It’s bad enough when we push our individual expectations on others; when we do so as a group, it’s far far worse. ☺
