The damage done by an irrational agent to a rational agent in regards to the rational agent’s decreased ability to maximize its utility function due to having to strike a rational compromise is equal to the damage done by the irrational agents contribution towards its own implicit utility function.

Since for every unit of resource spend by an irrational agent towards non-continuous co-existence a rational agent will have to spend the equivalent resource less towards continuous co-existence due to having to strike a rational compromise with the irrational agent. A rational agent thus must be concerned equally for the self and the other out of an interest for self preservation resulting in compassion becoming a rational moral duty.
