Altruistic acts are often seen through the benevolent acts of family members express towards each other on a regular basis. Because of the significant amount of genes we share with our kin, the survival of a family is prioritized equally to the survival of the individual. Each member of the family will therefore behave altruistically towards each other, due to the evolutionary drive for survival. The reason that parents behave this altruistically towards their offspring is because “parents (adults) are in a maximally favorable position to dispense inexpensive aid to offspring (eggs) that maximally resembles the parents genetically” (Alexander, 462). Even through altruism is perhaps highest between family members, people also feel more empathetic towards others who possess similar traits, as a large number of genes are share. As altruism “involves a loss of individual fitness, [it] can evolve only by group selection” (Nunney, 228). Therefore, we can see that nature’s force of the survival of the group is a primary driving factor for the appearance of altruism.

Very impressive Bilal, which essay you attempted?

Yes dear, you are right as far as sub point a and b is concerned, there is some redundancy. But point e is different from these two. If you are student of Philosophy then you would easily appreciate that. Let me tell you, it is appearance of things not the things in themselves that are perceived in mind, now we perceive the sun to be as small as a marble ball with which we used to play in childhood, but for an astronaut it might be different, because he is near and we far far, distance mars our ability to perceive the sun as it really is. So far an astronaut sun is bigger than a marble ball but for us it is not. Point E says that we have some biases that won't allow us to settle at one meaning. For example, ashura is good activity for Shias but for Sunnis it is not, now what exactly is Ashura? So our biases came here, so dear point a and e are different. We can't fix the meaning.

Great work, I also attempted like you did. Hopefully checker will also appreciate it, but I gave examples of USA, during colonizaion period, that how they got independence and won without fighting. I mentioned china, Tureky and also compared them with Pakistan. I mentioned many facts and figures from economic survey that how to win war without fighting and bla bla bla. In last I gave an optimistic conclusion...
