To begin with, I want to discuss scope. The following axioms and principles apply only to me and my interpersonal relationships with other adults capable of consent. They do not prescribe a larger (e.g. political) system, and they may not apply to anyone else. That being said:
"You made this bed, now lie in it" Actions have consequences, and whatever I do will come back to me in one way or another. I must be aware of this at all times.
"It seemed like a good idea at the time" I may at any time decide to violate any of the following principles. I must not do this without a damned good reason.
"Every [person] is a star" Every person, including me, is a sovereign being with their own inalienable rights, most importantly the right to choose how they live. I must not infringe upon those rights without the other's consent.
... And that's all I have so far, but there will be more to follow, I'm sure.
