"I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do.
I am free, no matter what rules surround me.
If I find them tolerable, I tolerate them; if I find them too obnoxious, I break them.
I am free because I know that I alone am morally responsible for everything I do."
--Robert Heinlein
Let's hope Heinlein uses this as an assumption for his argument:

One should treat others as one would like others to treat oneself.
Golden Rule

One should not treat others in ways that one would not like to be treated.
Silver Rule

Alfred Pennyworth: With respect Master Wayne, perhaps this is a man that *you* don't fully understand, either. A long time ago, I was in Burma. My friends and I were working for the local government. They were trying to buy the loyalty of tribal leaders by bribing them with precious stones. But their caravans were being raided in a forest north of Rangoon by a bandit. So, we went looking for the stones. But in six months, we never met anybody who traded with him. One day, I saw a child playing with a ruby the size of a tangerine. The bandit had been throwing them away.

Bruce Wayne: So why steal them?

Alfred Pennyworth: Well, because he thought it was good sport. Because some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned, or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

The Dark Knight (2008)

"Some men just want to watch the world burn."

And, from what I've seen, many have worked themselves into the halls of power just to strike the match.

Silver Rule
He did seem to be quite critical of some aspects of humanity.
Religion, government, and jealously in particular.
However he did say...

"For me, politeness is a sine qua non of civilization."

"One of the sanest, surest, and most generous joys of life comes from being happy over the good fortune of others."

and...

“Sin lies only in hurting others unnecessarily. All other "sins" are invented nonsense.”

The worst thing about falling for your best friend is the fact that you can't tell them, not wanting to ruin the friendship. So you're basically forced to keep your biggest secret from the one person you can tell any secret to, and that breaks you.

Keep in mind that part of growing up is dealing with difficult issues, and the benefits can be great if you have the courage to ask for help. Human beings are not designed to go through life alone. No one has to bear the burden of tough times all by themselves

I Believe that we are who we choose to be. Nobody is going to come and save you. You've got to save yourself. Nobody is going to give you anything. You've got to go out and fight for it. Nobody knows what you want except You, and nobody will be as sorry as you if you don't get it. So don't give up on your dreams....
