"putting the concern of society higher than one's own interests."

Yeah, this is not a word Americans will adopt.

FTFA: the likely 2020 "word of the year" in Denmark is "samfundssind - which the Danish Language Council defines as "putting the concern of society higher than one's own interests."

Last year Americans went wild for hygge

I've never heard nor seen that word in my life.  Am I so un-hip that it looks to me like someone is stroking out and trying to say Hi?

Conscientiousness, self-awareness, personal responsibility, community-mindedness. No matter what words you use, it means the same thing, not being a selfish farkwit who doesn't consider (or doesn't care about) the impact their actions have on others.
 
2020-10-26 3:10:44 AM  
I think the term you are looking for is altruism/altruistic.

It doesn't have to be at the expense of self.
It is much better served when realizing serving society serves the self.
 
2020-10-26 3:12:06 AM  
You know, I'll settle for just having a little respect for the common wealth instead of being a selfish bastard and letting your cattle overgraze the village pasture.

Who was the first caveman to invent a word for something that does not exist in their environment?

Back, past the eons, huddled around a smoky fire but gazing up at a shrouded autumn moon, who was the first of Gorg's tribe to look at her fellows and say, "unicorn fart?" Did they understand immediately, or did they have to watch her gestures and grunts to grasp and internalize the deeper meaning?

I hope a descendant of that she-human of Gorg's tribe can take some LSD and enter a sensory deprivation tank in Boulder, Colorado and come out hours later to share her revelation with others of the drum circle around the pod: "wearing a mask...is LOVE!"

No, because altruism does not come with the expectancy, and reward, that we are in it together, for the good of society.

Foreign indeed, both figuratively and literally.  With even a cursory read of the US constitution one is reminded that in nearly every way the individual's rights are placed higher than those of society. "E pluribus unum" might as well stand for "lookout for #1"

Americans do not have a word for that. They have a phrase, a mantra, if you will. "Looking out for number one", or the shorter version: "Fark you, me first".

Conceptually here i find this is still missing the mark of truth a bit.

"putting the concern of society higher than one's own interests."

But more reality would be:
Understanding the longer term outcomes of our own decisions to understand the hierarchy of needs for when a singular personal desire is of lesser overall longer term value to you than the needs of society. Which you would be left to the life of the jungle without, and then far fewer , if any of your singular self interests will be as obtainable any more.Not that you put the needs of the civilization before your own. But that you understand how much you actually need civilization, and most of what you imagined to be the conflicting self interests actually just cease to be an option for you to chase any more if you do not have civilization first.

"putting the concern of society higher than one's own interests."

You know what would be awesome? If both political parties currently in power adopted thisphilosophy as well.

I'll be the blue guy over in the corner holding his breath.
