The timeless basis for cooperation

Adapted from an article published in The Christian Science Monitor, June 8, 2016.

Most of us have probably engaged in a mental squabble with someone, if not a verbal one, over what turned out to be of little consequence. When an issue of much greater significance arises, what seemed so important can quickly fade into insignificance.

It’s in everyone’s interest, regardless of differences, to come together, especially when there’s a lot at stake. The report of greater cooperation (see editorial on facing page) talks about joint efforts to achieve progress in crucial areas of concern. 

What impels a true spirit of cooperation? It transcends self-interest or even the urgency of circumstances.
