Conscious about Each Other's Needs

Post by The Voice of Time » Thu Nov 21, 2013 9:07 pm

As a thought experiment, how do you think it would be like if people were taught from their early age to always have an awareness of each other's needs and that they were taught to recognize how those needs were affected by fulfillings and deprivations, and that they were taught to communicate these things with each other throughout the day... how do you think that would've been like?

It's been done; you end up with John Stuart Mill.
