If you watch nothing else today, please watch this video. It talks about how we humans are NOT soft wired for aggression, violence, self-interest and apathy. We are actually wired for attachment, companionship, affection, and the drive to belong. It’s really interesting and gives me a bit of hope for the future.
I guess this video makes me feel a bit vindicated. I always suspected it was in our nature to be helpful, with the exception of a few dirty douche–packers who suck monkey balls. Basically, I think we should all try to be decent to each other. We’re all on this spinning rock together for a short period of time. Let’s just try to make that time a little less sucky. Whadda ya say?
