Rambo and the Dalai Lama:
The Compulsion to Win and
Its Threat to Human Survival

by Gordon Fellman, Brandeis University

Rambo and the Dalai Lama suggests that the assumption that human life is based on conflicts of interest, wars, and opposition of people to each other and to nature exists as a paradigm that supplies meaning and orientation to the world. An alternative paradigm sees cooperation, caring, nurturing, and loving as equally viable ways of organizing relationships of humans to each other and to nature. Fellman sees this shifting emphasis from adversarialism to mutuality as essential to the survival of our species and nature itself.
