We all need to understand the definition of altruism right now. It’s imperative that we all sacrifice in favor of the common good. The irony is, behaving altruistically at this moment means keeping to ourselves. If we don’t all do our part, this pandemic will continue to affect us all for a very, very long time.

So whether you choose to be altruistic in the true sense of the word, or you choose to think about how altruism will ultimately benefit you (and it will), it’s time to stop socializing for a while. This could be the single biggest event in most of our lives, and how we behave right now will determine how bad it gets and how long it lasts. Do the right thing.

  1. Altruistic acts are self-interested, if not because they relieve anxiety, then because they lead to pleasant feelings of pride and satisfaction; the expectation of honor or reciprocation; or the greater likelihood of a place in heaven; and even if neither of the above, then at least because they relieve unpleasant feelings such as the guilt or shame of not having acted at all. Many psychologists and philosophers have argued that there is, in fact, no such thing as true altruism. In The Dawn, the 19th century philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche maintains that that which is erroneously called ‘pity’ is not selfless but variously self-motivated.
