Are we obligated to help others in need from a evolutionary / genetic pov?
I want to ask if we're obligated to help others in need? Not from a religious standpoint as to not confuse the issue; but as a society coming from an evolutionary and genetic pov? Is moral obligation better for the human race? Or should "survival of the fittest" come into play?
