This paper relates Mill's statement: "To do as one would be done by, and to love one's neighbor as oneself, constitute the ideal perfection of utilitarian morality." In this way, Mill succeeds in characterizing the spirit of utilitarianism as a moral theory. The author thinks that this is because it becomes in people's self-interest to be good to others.
