I was going to white knight for our boy red rider, but he thumsed-down my Fox News is hoarding defense lawyers post. Basically the least hateful, most objectively factual content I've come up with during this whole shitstorm. Cheering mass death, mocking Trump, Christians, newsbabes, women attempting to engage in self-propelled wheeled recreation, Democrats, DeSantis...

We have no duty.

Sure, if you help, that makes you a good person, but at the end of the day you have no duty to anyone but yourself and your dependents

Yes, I'm being extreme, but rhetorical discussions call for extreme positions
if everyone thinks you have a duty, in what sense do you not have a duty? Did God tell you? :poop:

Look at you, an abortion warrior who has no duty.

Do we have the duty to not accept transgender people in any walk of life?

Basically your only duty is to be an all around garbage.
Look on the bright side; won't have to hear about venerating the housewife or any other moronic trad-con sh!t anymore.

If everyone thinks you have a duty, you have a duty to not do that duty, so everyone gets it through their thick fckn skulls that they're not the arbiter of obligation/delegation of duty, and they can pull their own fist out of their own ass and do that duty themselves.

Unless they want a high and inside 98 mph fastdoodie to splat about the chin and eyeballs, resulting in pink eye and e-coli poisoning.

No one thinks you have a duty. You don't need to sacrifice yourself for someone you don't know

If you do, that's what makes you a hero. If it was par-for-the-course, people who sacrifice themselves for others wouldn't be heroes

I think Pinker said in one of his books that mathematical analysis of
benevolence and reciprocity show that a person should always perform
an act with low/no cost to them that yields a comparably net-positive
benefit to the recipient

it costs you nearly nothing to hold the door and creates a higher-value
benefit to the recipient which could then come back in the form of a
reciprocal act at a later date (again, possibly at greater personal benefit)

its more like when your wife says “you don’t have to get me anything for my birthday” but she doesn’t really mean it

if you get her something nice, she’ll say how nice you are but if you really believe you have no obligation to get her something, you are completely wrong

No, it's nothing like that.

You don't have to do sh!t for anyone else

Triggering the social engagement system by helping others is restorative to the body of the person triggering the response with the kind act.

Even without reciprocity later, the act of holding the door triggers your own SES, creating the health building effect neurologically. When you do it right, the other person gets the health building neural effect too.

Now if the kunt walks through the door and doesn't say thanks you, you might have to throw your shoe at the back of her head to return the nervous system to homeostasis. :poop:

comparable, but this is mathematically corroborated

it's interesting to see how they test/analyze behavior statistically

I think one of the most interesting things I learned from his books is that
the human mind has a powerful innate statistical calculator....so much of
our behavior is driven by these underlying probability calculations rooted in
the propagation of our genetic material

like, the bond between the maternal uncle and child is stronger than the
bond with the paternal uncle (when measured across a population) because
the maternal uncle KNOWS that child carries some of his genetic material
because it was borne by his sister.

the paternal uncle does not have the same guarantee that the child carried
by the sister in law is actually his brother's....he could be cuckolded.

I don't know...it's weird sh!t...check out How The Mind Works
