When we have to pitch in.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
This post is the tenth in a series of posts about a reflection on our ability to socially evolve. These posts should be read in the order of their publication. For example, starting with the 6th would make no sense to the reader. Happy reading!
So what about those people who haven’t been able to develop a taste for independence. First of all, it comes from a sense of security. To be convinced that life, our parents, society, will take care of us, no matter what. Isn’t that wonderful? To be able to count on all the good Samaritans in our society to fulfil our basic needs? To be housed, fed and clothed, albeit modestly, at no cost.
The first advantage would be to create pity. The good old pity that makes us so uncomfortable that we feel guilty for not helping the object of this pity. But beyond this potentially catastrophic situation lies a complexity that is beyond comprehension. Only a great social debate could overcome such a question.
In order to avoid this kind of situation which can only worsen over time, society relies on education in order to develop a taste for independence and a sense of responsibility. Some societies have opted for free education, a simple “pay later” principle, while others have chosen to fund pay-as-you-go education. In any case, one thing is certain, there can be no social evolution without education. Education is the key to an evolution where even if in the future, there were only 1% of the world’s current population, it alone would allow the emancipation of humans from the constraints of biological life.
