SURVIVAL & ALTRUISM
A UNIVERSAL PRINCIPLE OF ETHICS
This page contains two biological concepts implicit in our genetic information:
- Humanity has the vital imperative of trying to survive.
- Broad group altruism is the most efficient and effective means of doing so.
From these concepts a universal ethical principle can be deduced:
- It is good/better whatever is good/better for our survival.
The application of these ideas would facilitate the improvement of our coexistence and well-being. And it would increase the survival capacity of our humanity.
