People who show respect for reality, and for the laws of logic, will show respect for others. This is because they know they need and want others with whom to associate, for personal, business or other reasons. They appreciate that the mind works through reason and logic, and they use these methods when dealing with others. They don’t use intimidation, fraud or force. People who use intimidation, fraud or force are the ones who don’t see power or value in reason and logic. (These include “political” types, by the way.) If they were rational, they wouldn’t be tempted to use force or verbal intimidation because they not only know that these things are wrong—but also that they don’t work. So find out how a person approaches things mentally, and intellectually, and you’ll be able to predict how he or she is as a friend, a business partner or a marital partner. Respect flows from realism.
