When we learn to live together.
This is the fifth in a series of posts reflecting on the general decline of civility. These posts should be read in order of publication. Starting with number six, for example, would make no sense to the reader. Happy reading!
Civility is different from knowledge in that it is something that does not transfer well from one person to another. A bit like any other discipline, even if the supreme master of this discipline told you a lot about it, it is only by practicing it that you can really learn, because yes, the mind will train itself to develop reflexes that will allow you to progress in your mastery of this art.
These two people who live interdependently will need to maintain a healthy relationship. Why is that? Let’s see.
- If the two don’t want to reach this interdependence, they will die. End of story.
- Either person would like to achieve certain goals that cannot be achieved through this healthy relationship. If the other partner doesn’t show an interest in this adventure, it is clear that if an alternative partner were to appear, it would be tempting to replace the previous one with this one. Otherwise, death.
This is why both of them should strive to maintain a relationship that is conducive to the achievement of their desired goals. These goals can be very minimalist or more complex. We will refer to the hierarchy of needs once again to determine the classification of these objectives.
