the rules of cooperating

BTW, the multiple responses to the study, and especially the authors' reply at the end, are all well worth reading.
My morals pretty much break down to one single meta-rule.
* Only do X to people who do not obey this rule.

Where X is something you wouldn't normally want someone to do to you.

So you get to rob the robbers, kill the killers, obstruct the obstructionists, and if someone isn't doing anything bad to you, you leave them alone. It's kind of like the Golden Rule, except without having to be nice to jerks.

As for the article:
