Cooperation is not only in our nature, it is often the problem
Well, thats a bit of curve ball... first of all, its apples and oranges, because economics and judicial issues have different conveyance of what possibly can be "cooperation"... because id call the portrayals of jury behaviour more indifference towards the outcome for a third party and submission to court directives, which can be interpreted as short sighted egocentrism rather than cooperation.
Its kind of funny, the connotation of "cooperation" in a lot of contexts, particuarly with domestic spying and anything judiciary implies "spreading your buttcheeks wide open and let them do whatever they want"... oh? the en-esss-ayee wants all the logs of interactions and communications from your customers? well, were COOPERATING by giving all that info away without resistance! How about unlawful searchs without warrants? oh were just COOPERATING.
In my world id still like to think that cooperating does not mean getting down on one's knees and sucking dick for whomever demands it, but rather doing actions towards a common goal that benefits everyone involved.
