When we put our needs first.
This is the sixth 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!
When it comes to needs, I can answer here! If you can name a day when you didn’t put your needs before the needs of others, I’d like to see video evidence! In fact, there isn’t a day that goes by where we put our needs first.
In the case of civility, it’s not about putting our personal needs second, but simply about not turning common space into a battle arena. It is possible, in all situations and without exception, to put our needs and those of others first. How can we do this? Well, that’s what we’ll be looking at in the next few posts.
Before moving on, I must admit that there is an exception to the rule. Where there are not enough resources for everyone, where fair sharing becomes almost impossible because of our social norms, where the fear of deprivation dominates people’s minds, all these situations describe the same exception, a lack of resources. It is obvious that in a context like this one, live or be left to die, it is impossible for me to blame anything on whoever will take such and such a decision. Overpopulation will always be the greatest danger for humans.
