Feeling guilty is usually associated with feeling responsible for a hurtful or offensive act towards another person. However, not everyone feels the same amount of it given the same situation. This is because of the reason that guilt is mostly based around people feeling bad about something they did that they new was wrong. This means that if a person does something that others see as wrong but they think it isn't, then they will most likely not have a strong feeling of guilt.
While majority of people do not like feeling guilt, it is an extremely useful emotion to our society. It is the reason that people feel a genuine obligation to be good people and not only look out for themselves. It is an emotion that people would say enhance the human ability to feel compassionate. Guilt is a terrific emotion for helping people build strong bonds with each other, but it is also a reason for people feeling horrible about themselves which can lead to other problems. From a technical standpoint, people would have the ability to be happier if guilt was not an emotion that people felt. The world would be much more selfish and there is a high chance it could lead to more suffering throughout the earth, but it would move the thinking of humans to a much more logical mindset.
Would the world become more productive without guilt? I am asking if everyone in the world didn't feel it as much, not only a few people. How would the lack of guilt affect other emotions and their meanings to our society? Why would the world be better without guilt?
