I think what we're going to discover from this is that a society must be polite to be kind. That's why our ancestors invented rules of etiquette. We have forgotten that. Rules of etiquette engender in people a habitual kindness. It's rude to yell racial slurs at someone. It's rude to walk down the middle of a street at 2a.m. yelling at the top of your lungs. Politeness is formal kindness. No society can last without it.
