Why is it important to be excellent to each other especially in communities? Real politeness is interested in facts and in truth. And truth is a prerequisite for freedom.
What I mean is the intrinsically motivated politeness that sees sense in treating people with respect.
Politeness that sincerely says "Thank you", makes room for someone or simply perceives that there are other people than just me.
After all, politeness is cleverness, Schopenhauer already knew.🙃
