A video of a dog that wouldn’t abandon its injured friend amongst the destroyed scenery in Japan was captured and shared on the Internet recently. Both dogs have been rescued since the video was captured with one being placed in a shelter and the other undergoing treatment from a vet in the same town. Now, take this situation to the human world. Disaster strikes, someone got injured right beside you and can barely move, you have no idea where to get help because there’s destruction everywhere — do you stick around and try to find help for both of you? Or do you panic because of the destruction and try to save yourself first? I feel like people would much rather help themselves first over other people. Of course, this would also depend on what you’ve been taught throughout your life because as far as I’m seeing on the news, there hasn’t been looting going on in Japan for the most part despite the destruction and panic and things are still orderly but if it happened anywhere else, people would probably fight for food in order to ensure their own survival. What do you think? Are humans too survival-hungry for their own good?
