Sharing is the mantra of the kindergarten set and they do pretty well.
What happens when we are older than 5?
We share our money by donating to charity. We share our time in group efforts towards the common good. We share our knowledge and skills.
How do we respond when resources are scarce? When ownership or control bestows power and dominance. At what point does using force to get what we want become justifiable?
Would you go as far as giving up personal ownership and join a commune or eco-village? Are the people who do naive or pioneers on the cusp of change? Why do these groups often founder? When it comes down to it, is sharing beyond the scope of the human psyche?
Do we learn sharing or do we learn aggression? Is either part of our genetic code? Can we make a choice?
