Is it possible to go through life playing only cooperative games ?
Why not try it and see what happens?
To do this, one might determine the goal or best possible outcome for each potential player at the outset of the game, and choose to only engage in the game if all players can attain their first or second most-desired outcomes. Even better, one might choose to only engage with players whose requirements for their best possible outcomes include that the other player(s) also “win.”
Obviously, the old rules are no longer working. Perhaps we can start small by restructuring our personal dynamics.
