By signing this pledge, I promise that for the rest of my life, I will not be a dick.
When you're a dick, you make life annoying for other people. You're the buzz kill. The guy no one invited. At some point, to be fair to everyone else, that guy gets asked to leave.
That time is now.
By signing this pledge, I agree to never be that person again.
And further, I pledge to speak up when someone else is being a dick. Because if I see someone else be a dick, and don't do my part to stop it, then by my silence, I'm also being a dick.
A lot of the worlds problems could be solved if we all agreed to to stop being dicks. From stealing someone's parking spot, to starting wars, someone deciding to act like a dick is always what caused it.
Not being dicks is our only shot at having a chill, happy, successful planet.
There's no reason the world can't work well for everybody.
We're too smart for it not to.
We all have the right to be free.
We all have the right to believe what we want, say what we want, and do what we want...
Only under one, very obvious condition: As long as what we do, say, and want does not take away that very same right from other people. Does not take advantage of someone else, or cause them to be left with less than their fair share.
It's simply the Golden Rule: "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you."
And if you don't follow the Golden Rule, you're a dick.
Pass this pledge on to your family, your friends, your facebook and twitter followers. Because if you believe in this idea, but don't tell people about it, then you're kinda being a dick.
