Benefitting everybody as much as possible

How can we benefit everybody as much as possible? Shouldn't our aim in society to benefit everybody?


Why don't we focus on benefitting eachother?

I think this might be a bad aim for individuals. For example, suppose I have a child. If I were to aim to benefit everybody, then I would have to neglect my child. I think that maximizing (benefiting everybody as much as possible) also might not be a good aim: we need rest and leisure, time to ourselves, in order not to burn out.

我真的不知道。但这是一个非常重要的话题(对我来说),我喜欢讨论。 答案可能取决于我们如何定义“好处”这个词。还好吗?是从长远的角度还是短视的货币/舒适感?


我和你在一起。 100%。 但为了让某些东西持久,它不应该成为主要焦点,而应该成为副作用(出现?)。而且,这只是我的意见。

有些问题并不容易回答。而且,有些根本不可能(不是出于失败主义心态,而是直接看到看似无法回答的事物,给了我纯粹的快乐!)。 对我来说,在生活中牢记这些问题是关键。 人们总能找到做/不做的理由。如果你问我,我会说这是幸福和智力的问题。个人或所有人的幸福?如果你看得足够深,就不存在没有他人的个人,反之亦然。更直接地说:我们融入了我们的环境并专注于自己(取决于你有多贪婪(在 RL/CS 意义上)),生活只是短视。

How can we benefit everybody as much as possible?

I really don't know. But this is a very important topic (to me) that I love to discuss. The answer might depend on how we define the word "benefit". Well being? in a long-term view or short-sighted monetary/comfort sense?

Shouldn't our aim in society to benefit everybody?

I'm with you. 100%. But in order for something to last, it shouldn't be the main focus but something that comes as a side-effect (emergence?). And, this is just my opinion.

Some questions can't be answered easily. And, some can't be, at all (not from a defeatist mindset, but seeing right in the eyes of something that seems unanswerable, gives me pure joy!). To me, keeping these questions in mind while going through our life is the key. One can always find a reason to do/not-do. If you ask me, it's the question of well being and intelligence. Well being of an individual or everyone? If you see deep enough, there exists no individual without others and vice versa. To be more direct: we're embedded in our environment and focusing on one's own (depends on how greedy (in RL/CS sense) you are) life is just being short-sighted.
