argumate:

I do think that the question of why society is suddenly so much kinder than it was even a couple of generations ago is actually very important, and we normally just take it utterly for granted.

That’s a genuinely interesting question to me in a way “why is it better for the people who organized and spent energy to make it better for themselves?” is not.

I have like

vague guesses and gestures towards increases in wealth that allows people the surplus to engage in kindness more often?

But it’s all just mist and guesswork.
