Why Birds Rejected Regulations
Long ago, when everything was being sorted out, the birds met to make a critical decision about regulations.
The issue was: Do we need rules to guide how we live?
Of course, the birds realized the benefit of having rules: They can facilitate order.
Being wise, the birds also considered the implications of having a system of rules.
First, rules require organizations to invent and then enforce them.
Second, some group might create rules that favored themselves while harming others.
Third, setting rules can lead to arguments.
Fourth, all rules are written after a harmful action has become too offensive to ignore.
Fifth, a collection of rules would require large brains to remember them.
So, the birds decided upon a simpler system.
And now the question was: What value would best serve to preserve the continuation of birds?
After a great amount of thought, they choose Compassion.
In this case, it’s compassion for Nature. Because birds are as much a part of Nature as Nature is part of them.
So when birds care for Nature, they care for themselves.
And this value is so basic, so fundamental, so simple, it could be instinctive. Then no one would need to worry about remembering it.
