Emotions in social interaction

In hierarchic societies of the past, the economic necessity of brute force and tedious work made intellect unnecessary and even dangerous. Also, the brutality of life and lack of social net made people fearful and live with a fatalistic mindset. Because the cultural fabric of society is handed down the in the family environment as children observe and copy their parents, the emotional coping mechanisms and behavioral patterns are assimilated over countless generations. Today hard physical labor has been mostly replaced by machines, whereas human intellectual involvement is increasingly important at every level in the corporate world and society. Fear and fatalism do not serve the requirements of our modern world. The accumulated horrors of the past might provide faulty coping mechanisms for children, which handicaps their ability to achieve their full potential. High intelligence requires emotional stability, confidence, and love. But changing the mind and mastering emotions is possible at any age. Bringing a program on emotion regulation to companies and communities might transform corporate culture. Over time, the understanding of emotion regulation can become as common as the understanding of traffic rules. In a world where an understanding of emotional control is a democratic right, individuals feel secure and supported. This feeling enhances responsibility towards our society, the environment, and for each other. Confident citizenry elects responsible governments, which act for peace, prosperity, and well-being. This way, the positive changes on the individual level will meet positive changes in society and lead to a better world.
