in recognition of the truth of interdependence, our view should be one of community rather than individualism. there’s no moral or ethical reason that supports allowing people to go hungry or die from lack of healthcare when others live in exorbitant wealth that they can’t possibly spend or use in not just this one, but multiple lifetimes. it is a failure of our species to place a priority of individualism at the cost of others and the environment. it is a path that leads to destruction. may we embrace and engage a more altruistic view.
