ISN’T THIS PRICELESS? Yes, the Golden Rule is at work out there already.
[Ken Dodd’s] tickling stick reminds me of Dee Hock’s maxim:
You can’t tickle yourself. It’s a social act.
So, who’s tickling me today? I think it haas to be Hock’s reflection on his efforts to develop a new sort of organisation (from the same page as his maxim – p284: Birth of the Chaordic Age):
In the darkest times, and there were many, I could never look out at so many wonderful people and engage with them in laughter and give and take without walking from the room filled with wonder at the human spirit. They could do anything! Anything! And so can everyone, everywhere, if our minds are open enough, and our spirits strong enough to conceive of institutions that enable us to do so.
I’m not giggly, but giddy with that. It’s very ticklicious.

You can’t tickle yourself. It’s a social act. Marvellous! Good News! And unforgettable!
