What one atheist doesn't understand about the Golden Rule

On Facebook, I shared this:

When an atheist objected, I googled, found Refuting the Golden Rule, and commented:
Amusingly, the first hit for"atheism golden rule" is an atheist who doesn’t get it.

Specifically, he thinks it’s about reciprocity, and it’s not. It’s about hypocrisy and understanding that good people uphold the standards they expect of others.

Meaning it’s not about reciprocity at all. It’s not “wait and see what others do.” It calls on you to act first.
Yes, many atheists do get it.
