The Antonym of Sad Is Happy

Human behavioral biology makes you see things in different ways, including knowing that inbred groups that get along better often out-compete larger groups1. Its a good thing we're all social citizens aside from our sexual predispositions. Its not like the global economic system treats us as if we're only reproductive labor - they squeeze us and leave us to care with the fatigue and scars.

I've been thinking about this biology a while. Humans just have to get along so we can get things done in society and the world. How are we going to develop the technosocial systems we need to grow in consciousness otherwise. Primitives just don't have the nutritional or communication systems to be as conscious as we can. Its sad that despite varying tolerances possessiveness is the norm in every culture.
