Are Humans Really Selfish?

June 28, 2021, in Videos > Social Discourse, by

This short video called “Are Humans Really Selfish?” is produced by the UK Baha’i Office of Public Affairs. It explores how western society is built on the assumption that humans are inherently selfish. Responses to Covid-19, however, have demonstrated our collective capacity to be selfless and altruistic. The video asks: Can we reconsider some of our fundamental beliefs at this unique moment? What is the best way to harness human potential? What would the world be like if it was understood that we all have an inherent capacity for altruism and self-sacrifice?
