Brass Rule

Treat everybody fairly until they treat you badly, then pay them back as a lesson not to do it again.

Pretty much the plot of most movies and fiction adventure books. Funny, I can't think of any best sellers that promote the golden rule.

    I thought it was: A Masochist asks the sadist to beat him and the sadist says 'no'.
