Anthropologists at the University of Oxford have discovered what they believe to be seven universal moral rules.
The rules: help your family, help your group, return favours, be brave, defer to superiors, divide resources fairly, and respect others' property.

In 1976, a professor of economic history at the University of California, Berkeley published an essay outlining the fundamental laws of a force he perceived as humanity’s greatest existential threat: Stupidity.

When I was a student of Anthropology wwwaaaayyy back in the Dark Ages, the teaching was that there was only ONE Universal Law found in every known Culture. That was referred to as the "Golden Rule" and it existed across the planet in one form or another....

"Do unto others as you would have them do unto you".

(I don't think that really needed to be expanded upon, and following up with an article on Universal Laws of Stupidity seems appropriate.)

You would think there are enough real problems in the World to work on solving. Instead we get lazy PhD's confering another lazy revisionist PhD, to someone unwilling (or too stupid) to actually do innovative work for it..
