There are many reasons why:

  • Humans would not have survived without a co-operative spirit, we were small primates that would have been wiped out if we didn’t band together to fight of bigger predators i.e. lions.
  • Helping others when they are in a bad situation due to misfortune means that they may return the favor when your fortunes change. Everyone suffers from misfortune.
  • Helping others is the only way you are going to ultimately get what you want. This is mathematically true i.e. Nash equilibrium.
  • Helping others improves YOUR sense of wellbeing.
  • It is the right thing to do, all well adjusted people know this innately. – Thomas Jones
