48. Yeah, what you've said is true. The point that I'm driving is

that kindness is biological, deeply rooted in our evolution as a species. I wish I had a documentary link handy that disproved the myth of competition among early hominids killing each other off. Fortunately people with above-average tendencies for hatred are not the norm, otherwise I don't think we'd be conversing now. Again, kindness is not a cultural construct. But as Perseus says, "It is unfortunate that the bad people make all the noise."

Here's Keltner talking about his kindness research findings.
