Come to think of it

What Should I Do? is the most important question to ask yourself in any ethical conundrum. Because let's face it, half the time when you ask yourself What Would Jesus Do?, the answer is going to be "turn water into wine and PARTAY!!!"

Similarly, when asking oneself What Would Reagan Do?, the answer will always be "cut taxes!"

The danger of relying upon "WSID" is that generally in times why you should be asking yourself, WSID, instead, you ask yourself "Wouldn't that be awesome????"

Also, being that the "you" in question is not generally super human, you don't get the same moral authority to tell others what YOU would do, and expect that they give a damn.
