Humans are not instinctively cruel beings. We come from tribes. Our primal instincts tell us that our survival and ability to thrive depends on each other’s joined efforts. We want to help each other. However, those same primal instincts also tell us that survival is imperative. We won’t want to help anyone who we view as a threat. Making allies, friendships isn’t the easy option but it’s more often than not the right one. People will always be more willing to help you if you are kind and well acquainted.
