It would be impossible to find the exact origin of being nice to others. The idea has probably existed since the dawn of intelligent civilization. We can trace it back to at least biblical times and the creation of the "Golden Rule," or "treat others the way you would want to be treated." Humans have found ways to be kind, respectful, and considerate of others throughout history (even if you don't learn about it in history class).
In today's society we are always spreading the message of being kind to others. We agree that we should help those in need and be courteous to our peers and authority figures. Just like all throughout human history there are people today who struggle with this concept, but generally we as a collective agree to forming a positive environment.
