If people don’t have double standards, this world will be such a happier place to live in. Most of the misery and clashing between people is because of double standards. Why should there be one set of rules for a person or a set of people, and another set of rules for everyone else? How we get paid and how well we are treated should be based on our capabilities, skills and our amicable behaviour. Not on anything else. Those who follow double standards do so because of habit and sheer ignorance. They will never experience true happiness or peace of mind.
