A silver lining about ethics

OK, since my last post was so depressing about ethics, I have to add one of the positive takeaways from Dan's work.

He ran a version of his study all over the world.  He found the same results everywhere.  West and east.  Developed and developing. 

Why is this a positive?  Isn't it even worse that we are unethical all over the world?  At least it shows that humanity has something in common.  Something we can point to as a shared characteristic.  And if we find a way to overcome this lapse in one place, we can use the same intervention all around the world.
