No actually. For there are many areas and many times in this Earth when man had plenty, and yet still had money and evil and no nobility. I can think
of the time of the Minoans. When they crashed, the Mycenaean and Dorians, both got their lovely hands on the cities, but had no capacity to rule them.
Minoans had plenty. Their new masters had plenty. Yet still, the uncivilized rulers chose to be brutal.
It turns out that never have We had the chence to remove the need for Human energy. There is a difference between plenty - for those who can afford
it - and plenty for everyOne. Because money is an accounting of meaningful energy expended, Human energy has been (until about a century ago) the
major part of the energy We account for. Even adding petrofuels, wind, water, solar, and so on through the last century, We still needed Human
energy. And slavery developed, and then was hidden under the guise of working for a meager wage, to fill the need for Human energy.
Now, however, We have robots. We no longer need to enslave Our Human brethren.
The whole money system is no longer necessary between plenum energy and robotics.
No, humanity has only ever been noble when he tries. As to being swayed by our hearts? This is not noble. This is weakness of self. You should
never be swayed by your heart unless your mind gives you an ok on the logic backing it.
Humanity DOES try. The percentage of Humans that have run the show here on this planet has been but a very small fraction of all Humans for millenia.
The average Human is good-hearted, honest, eager to help when One sees a need, loving, compassionate, and willing to follow civil code.
And please explain to Me the logic of compassion - which is from the heart. Logically, if I give some of Mine to others, that's less for Me.
Logically, compassion falls quite short. But Humanly, it is a defining trait. This is what I mean by moving from the heart. If We never moved from
the heart, no One would ever risk Themselves to save another. No One would shorten Their rations so another could eat. No One would care to teach.
It is BECAUSE We act so often from the heart that We are indeed noble.
Logic has its place, but it is not what makes Us Human. It is the heart.
