Overview

People are told that our various wars were fought to make the world safe for democracy. But unsafe conditions still prevail. Individuals and groups keep seizing unfair advantages to the detriment of others who keep trying to fight back by doing the same thing. Subtle, unobserved dishonesty is involved. Such dishonesty is the natural consequence of reasoning from urges based on personal motives. The remedy is to reason from reality: fill the need of the situation. In this book, Wetherill points out the importance of absolute honesty and shows how to identify and drop dishonest rationalizations. There are four experiential articles also included that were written by people who have described the application of the law of absolute right in their daily lives.
Introduction:
By applying what is said in this section, the members of a group of young people stopped their involvement in typical teenage trouble over smoking, drinking, drugs, and sex. The changes came one by one, but each change was sudden and effortless and proved to be lasting. Preteen children also reduced their misbehavior sufficiently that they no longer needed scoldings or punishments. Instead, calling their attention to misbehavior proved sufficient to end it because the kids themselves had determined that they should behave themselves in a civilized manner. Parents and school authorities were delighted. Numerous adults adopted and applied the same information in their vocational and private lives and ended their arguments. Anyone who thoughtfully and honestly considers all the details presently is able to understand why. At first some of the information may seem too good to be true but that condition passes as soon as the information is fully and correctly understood.

Meet the Author

During his lifetime, Richard W. Wetherill was often described as a person who was scores of years ahead of his time. His associates and members of his research group realize that his day has finally come. Increasingly, it is becoming fashionable to be honest and right. Author Richard W. Wetherill is known for his many contributions as an author, teacher, executive, and management consultant. Over the six decades of his own highly successful career, he inspired many executives to find success and helped many companies to solve their most complex management problems. In 1929, Mr. Wetherill discovered a natural law controlling people's personal and interpersonal behavior. The law states that a person is required to think, say, and do what is right in order to get a right result. It further states that when he has a personal problem or trouble, it is because something is wrong about his thinking, conversation, and behavior. In addition to stating the law of behavior, Mr. Wetherill explains the penalty that results from attempted violation or disregard for that law. As with all natural laws, the behavioral law is self-enforcing. The person who deviates from what he knows is right installs, in the recesses of his mind, the wrong thinking he uses to justify his behavior.
