Human Altruism Reduces Child Abuse


Altruism is a significant trait, component and concept in understanding human behavior, especially its role in reducing child abuse and other violence.

Pioneer child psychologist Jean Piaget defined three stages of an ageless process, based on inherent and choice altruism, in which infants start to gain sufficient emotional maturity so that by puberty they can deal with life on life’s terms as they enter adulthood.

Altruism has little, if any, relevance for academics and behavioral professionals caught up in Charles Darwin’s theory of human evolution which stresses survival of the fittest (egoism)  and efficient. Altruism is either an afterthought or its existence is in dispute. Little attention is given to altruism in the 947-page Diagnostic and Statistical Manuel of Mental Disorders (DSM 5).

This disregard for scientifically verified altruism leaves academics and behavioral professionals open to charges of condoning, even provoking, child abuse and other violence.

      Consider that most analysis of motives of violence or mental disorders give primary consideration to the patient’s childhood. So why don’t they give primary focus to Piaget’s process, and others, for promoting sufficient emotional maturity, which extends into adulthood?

The lack of the word “altruism” in common language, in academia, elementary and secondary school textbooks, literature and the general media is the greatest evidence that Darwin’s human  evolution theory has become a mythical, atheistic religion promoting and provoking direct and proxy violence! Most have no viable conscience, no guilt, no remorse, no concept of future, only limited and often faulty perceptions of past, present and future.  They are never who they think they are!

     They consider lies and fabrications of falsehoods against opponents to be maneuvers to achieve success, prestige, promotion, power and money! Why should they stop?

     That is why anyone who tries to engage in a public discussion on the lack of scientific evidence to support Darwin’s human evolution theory is met with scorn, contempt, derision, hatred and personal, sometimes vicious  attacks. They cannot admit being wrong and lose face!

Behavioral professionals use various profiles to define sociopaths, psychopaths, different levels of sanity and insanity, since they have no specific, objective definition of a viable conscience. The  camouflage atheist concept defines a viable conscience versus inherent altruism. 

      Darwinian evolution dominance has led to an American feudal system ravaging America with the establishment of various kinds and types of “royalty” (dictatorships).      

     Specific definitions are also necessary for concepts of future, victim, humility and evil.

This is an abstract of an ongoing study initiated in 2000, seeking to unravel why people commit violence. It took five years to originate an objective, universal definition of violence which led to the study’s title: Status Tension Concept, Myths, Absurdities and Realities of Violence.

     This study is based on the most revolutionary scientific behavioral breakthrough of the last half of the 20th Century, THE HANDICAP PRINCIPLE, A Missing Piece Of Darwin’s Puzzle, by Amotz and Avisha Zahavi (Oxford Press, 1997).

The Handicap Principle is not concerned with such terms as “intelligent design” or “creationism.” It provides scientific data that human “choice altruism” is the only  reason we have “free will” and other concepts.  Concepts enable only humans to learn language.

     Human Altruism Reduces Child Abuse guides the reader through basic Status Tension Concept results and explanations of conscious and unconscious motives and required “willingness, strength and courage” to take positive actions. Repeating some basics from previous studies provides context.

Keep an open mind and be prepared to have numerous, long-held “facts” exposed as myths or delusions as we explain the four dimensions of reality, five concepts of humility and five basic motives.

There are no “bumper sticker” answers, so take your time and follow the script and directions.

Love, peace, serenity and gratitude.
