What a great question posed by Joseph Howe, founder of the first government in Nova Scotia in 1838.

Rather than maintaining attention on individual benefit, what if we all kept our

 focus on what we believe in our hearts to be right, just and for the public good?  It won't solve everything - we often disagree on all three of these basic questions. We need only look as far as Crimea to see raw evidence of differing opinions.

I'm reminded in a current "bun fight" in my own life that by looking at what is right, just and for the public good, I shift the way I approach the situation.  This helps me to no longer feel attacked and taken advantage of.  It helps me to come back to the table with a rational approach - the emotional defensive feeling is set aside so I can focus on what the best options can be for everyone.

Back to the table,
