    Just accept that the Golden Rule isn't some perfect ideal that can be used to solve any moral dilemma. That is the point afterall.


    Violence stems from conflict. Conflict cannot be avoided with the Golden Rule as shown above thus your methodology for achieving Utopia is flawed.
    It can be avoided by removing the context under which we justify our actions outside that of the golden rule (namely, that others are breaking the golden rule). Because none of us can want to have our will violated, the golden rule cannot be used as a justification to violate the will of others. If everybody's following the golden rule, there is no need for prisons or self-defense. Of course this idea that everybody will follow it is probably Utopian and unrealistic in nature, hence there will always need to be some form of compromise however it can be minimized.
