Can bugs feel pain? Experience stress? I'd rather go overboard in assuming they can, and be nice to them, rather than deny them the benefit of the doubt as an excuse to hurt or kill them. This doesn't mean I would never kill a bug; just that I try to extend the Golden Rule as wide as possible.

Another way of looking at the Golden Rule...if any being is capable of experiencing the effects of my actions, I can't see why they wouldn't be included in the "others" part of the Golden Rule.
