Community of Fate

Last updated March 23, 2022

The keystone is generating an “expanded community of fate.” For societies to survive and thrive, a significant proportion of their members must engage in reciprocal altruism

“Our goal is a form of farsighted reciprocal altruism in which members are willing to make costly sacrifices on behalf of those with whom they believe their fates, and their descendants’ fates, are entwined but who may never be able to directly reciprocate.” – reminds me a lot of Bentoism, specifically the ‘future us’ square

A lot of very similar values to Unions and mutual aid, e.g. “An injury to one is an injury to all.”
