I believe the Wiccan Rede and Thomas Payne’s common sense have a lot of similarities. In general we should take care of each other and this planet on which we live. Dealing with each other as earthlings, no distinction of race, gender, or socioeconomic situation. Why is there war, because one side wants something the other side has? I believe we all learn about sharing when we are toddlers. Some hold on to selfish materialistic or territorial desires. We are all on this planet, we are all the same.
