A new version of the golden rule
“The injunction of Jesus to love others as ourselves is an endorsement of self-interest,” Goldman’s [international adviser Brian] Griffiths said Oct. 20, his voice echoing around the gold-mosaic walls of St. Paul’s Cathedral, whose 365-feet-high dome towers over the City, London’s financial district. “We have to tolerate the inequality as a way to achieving greater prosperity and opportunity for all.”
Well, I guess this could work. You should love others as you are really loving yourself, quite well, actually. But when do you stop loving yourself and turn to the others? And I guess he didn't talk about Matthew 19:24.
