Recent research tends to indicate that people are born with an innate sense of ethics, preferring altruistic acts over selfish ones, but also perhaps sadly, similarity over difference. The work of humanity, therefore, will be to see others, the other, as similar rather than different. Politics emphasizes just the things that divide us. But research also shows that the world is getting better, that world wide people are evolving, that there is an incipient understanding taking place, that all humanity is the same. If we evolve our thinking and fundamental perceptions along these lines, rather than focusing on our differences, we may survive. Knowing that a good 85% of the population show an innate ethical sense at two years of age should help. Nobody at age two has a political affiliation. Maybe we shouldn't either.
