Only the compassionate will survive

Only the compassionate will survive
“We need models which foster greater equality, greater participation and can give employees and the wider public a sense of control over their lives – all actions identified as contributing to wellbeing.” (Steve Mandel)
We now know that if we were all selfish, all of the time, we would be extinct. Co-operation pays in a vast range of scenarios: world peace, boosting business, shrinking the gap between rich and poor, increasing self-worth and personal wellbeing, and benefiting the global environment. Science is showing that co-operation is key to our survival, and intrinsic to our nature, and for co-operation to thrive at any societal level, communication is imperative. Selflessness really does pay.
