Human Solidarity

Without God, why should we care?

I’ve really tried to understand Christopher Hitchens’s argument that we should care because of the “brotherhood of mankind,” but I can’t seem to make it work.  It seems just as helpful to go on a murderous rampage as it does to feed starving children.

What am I not getting?

(Yes, I do believe it’s Hitchens who’s not getting it, but if I am missing something, I’d like to know.)
