TWO RESPECT PRINCIPLES … Their DIFFERENCES

Hello!

Researching to ensure no copyright infringement before publication of my book, “Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE” revealed the term, The Respect Principle, had also been coined by a California author, James Bauer, but further investigation into his work and book, What Men Really Want, revealed the term’s application is significantly different so there is no copyright infringement.

James uses the concept of the respect principle as a value, something desired, rather than a principle, a universal truth or foundational law, in his self help books. His focus suggests men want respect more than love … they want to be respected … admired for what and who they are first; yet there is a significant distinction between respect and admiration. My research to discover something that could be used a universal principle revealed there are several dictionaries and thesauruses that consistently present the idea that respect simply means “to value” whereas admiration “is looking up to someone for reasons beyond him or her just being a life … a human.”

Which is why I chose respect … being valued … as the principle to serve as a foundation to cross all boundaries … sex … religion … politics … race … economics, etc. … because I believe every person … man … woman … youth … child … wants and deserves to experience feeling valued and respected … and this is why the concept of respect serves as the foundation of my concept, book, and global initiative, “Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE.”

As a result of my recent investigation regarding his and my use of the same phrase, the respect principle, his not-capitalized, The Respect Principle, and mine capitalized, The RESPECT PRINCIPLE, but mine also as part of the title, “Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE” I discovered there is no conflict of interest because as with many other people’s work, James Bauer’s book is an additional educational, inspirational tool, though not a foundational application within the same context, to build higher “RESPECT LEVELS” for one’s self, life … and for the interactions and relationships we have with each other and for that I am grateful … because everybody’s gifts, talents, and abilities are valuable and needed to make our world a better place.

“Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE” can be used as a self help tool too, but it reaches far beyond the genre and into the heart and soul of the challenge every human faces … being valued … respected … for just being a life … a human being. Respect in “Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE” is a principle … a foundational truth … a universal law to be established “Because every child … every person … should know by their own experience … they are valued … RESPECTED.”

MIXED MESSAGES … FREE SPEECH … without a High RESPECT LEVEL …

Based on Connecting the Dots … with The RESPECT PRINCIPLE’S RESPECT SCALE, we can “connect the dots” with a fresh perspective to see how “free speech,” without a high enough Respect Level, is often used for oppression and in reality, is used as a violent act of aggression … sometimes even as a precursor to physical violence.

Making fun of people has consequences … especially people already showing signs of low Respect Levels themselves because of their history, beliefs, and experience plus don’t share our western cultural approval of making fun of people for the fun of it … or for any other reason … adds fuel to always-burning embers … and as we have seen, it only takes one or two who feel maligned and hurt to burst at the seams and unleash the havoc they did in Paris last week … or the havoc unleashed at work places and schools.

Standing up for free speech is vital … yet so is standing up for how free speech is used to hurt and harm rather than to promote if not understanding, at least tolerance and peace.

The solidarity we need is for valuing … respecting all life and developing new methods of communication and cross-cultural relations that is logical, practical … and compassionate … for everyone … particularly for those hurting the most … those most likely to lash out … it is the only way we will peacefully diminish violence of any kind … globally.
