When we have to fight our fears.
I listened to this while writing this post, try it while you read :o)
This post is the fourteenth 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!
Our fears. Our doubts. Our demons. How do we face them? Should we face them? What if we went back to the history of our small community? In one of the previous posts, we described the context where a community would have enough individuals to provide for let’s say double the needs of the individuals in the community.
This would mean that, for a variety of reasons that we will look at, some individuals would spend the majority of their time meeting their needs, as well as those of the community, while others would struggle to find occupations that contribute to the survival of the group.
Do you see where this is going? Not yet? Let’s keep going. In a context where everything is a question of survival, we can believe that the interests of individuals will be most importantly to ensure their own. A power play is taking place. A game of fairness, a game of who contributes more than others.
If we took the levels of our basic needs, we would quickly end up with what we could consider a food chain, where the strongest dominate the weakest, where the best positioned dominate those who are less so.
