As humans, we often live complicated lives, we live in a society where every individual matters but every individual is separate in that they have their own lives to live. We are strange in that our society is better connected than any other in the animal kingdom, but sometimes we seem to be the most disorganized and violent animals of them all. Knowing that we accomplish more together, why must this be the case?
We have evolved to such a point that we are able to rationalize our decisions as well as receive feedback on them from the other people of the human race. Perhaps the most frustrating part is that a simple disagreement on a single small issue can lead to a lot more, making us often unable to work together in order to achieve our goals. So how do we fix this?
The answer is that there is no easy answer. That we must divide our individual lives from that of our community and still try to walk the line in order to best serve both. Humans may be selfish by nature, they may not be, but just like any animal, their focus is primarily on their own survival. You cannot really blame them for this as this is what all animals prioritize.
However, the fast that we have developed mentally beyond that of most animals gives us the capacity to take a step back and look at what we are doing. To realize that we can change for the better.
