For Our Sake

Standard

I want to put this very simply and emphatically:

We do not exist for the sake of the Other.

We do not exist for the sake of the Other known as God.

We do not exist for the sake of the Other known as our “selfish genes”.

We do not exist for the sake of the Other known as Capitalism.

We do not exist for the sake of the Other known as Democracy.

We do not exist for the sake of the Other known as Science.

We do not exist for the sake of the Other known as Truth.

We do not exist for the sake of the Other known as …..   anything you can name.

We exist for ourselves and in cooperation with each other and in harmony with our environment, or else we don’t exist.

We are weak creatures who need to reflect on this every day.
