It's Kantian catagorical imperative in freely expressed; motivated with good will and that universalisation (results). The golden rule of many religions is fairly near that, but there is not that universalisation principle, other that in that that do the same to your fellows as you wish they'll do to you; but that's not indeed universalisation... One could wish whatever, or do whatever one wants that would be done to oneself; no matter how destructive that might be, in general.

I agree the golden rule is a nice try, but only works to the extent that people like to be treated the same. Most people seem to like to be treated the same, so it mostly works but falls short of being universal.

My idea for an ethical universal is this: Good and rational are one and the same. In other words, an action is moral if and only if it can be justified with true premises and impeccable logic.
