    From a historically social point of view, I understand why you'd think we're programmed to be selfish, but I don't think it applies to the globe. I think it is a culturally developed thing that, mainly, consumerism empowers.

    The old english philosophers used to define work as the impinging of your life force, per se, on the tangible world. Your work was thus an extension of you, and by virtue of the fact needed to also be protected by the state. Hence private property, hence "owning" land... hence this money driven, yet semi-aimless consumerist world we live in.

    At least the tribal folk, savage as they are, still look up, to another, to false gods. At least they're not focused on themselves, like St. Augustine warned about in La cité de Dieux

    And most philosophers classify a free act, one which is without cause.

    I don't think people can genuinely care about others, even by virtue of genetic relation, because of how alienating life is. We're social creatures, living in a society (exactly where we should be, even by our own definitions) and yet who wants to pay taxes? What of communism, how effective has that been? The UN. The Geneva convention happened, and yet the black panthers are still around, the KKK, most replubicans in the state.

    (sorry, I'm trying to address your questions but I can't seem to find the concise point... I'm way too tired, and sick)

    My personal qualms when it comes to helping others is the consideration of where to draw the line between simply helping a person, and having your freedom superpose theirs.

    I mean, we are granted, to some degree, a bubble within which we can actively control what's going on. That is our freedom. Our liberty. But when two people meet, these zones invariably mesh and an inevitable kind of conflict arises. Sometimes that turns into a positive kind of conflict, sometimes it doesn't.

    But if I help you, when you don't want to help yourself...

    An example of the fact, which has bothered me greatly, is how open people are to offering advice on fashion, and looks in general. I'm not a great believer of relying on the superficial, and beyond comfort, entertainment, I don't really see much purpose in paying attention to it. Yet people around me never fail to remind me when my hair is unkempt, or if they simply don't like what I'm wearing. They may care, but I do not.

    Do you see how perception, a world view even, could pose a problem with regards to helping others?

    And so, most of the time.. I try to only help when others ask me to do so, or indicate it in some fashion or another.

    I'm pretty placid when it comes to offering an ear, so vent to your heart's content.

    I don't think I've been close enough with babies to truly understand the concept as most would, biologically. The whole "we instinctively protect our young, especially the babies -- it's just the way we're genetically configured" precept. I think that has to do with my aimlessness/detachment from life -- I mean, I understand then idea and can abide by it should an opportunity arise to apply it... But I'm more of a save-everybody-as-if-they-were-all-babies kind of guy.

    And yes, I hate governments. Does it have anything to do with her sex?

    It would be a tad bit off, as nobody has really ever admitted there is some sense to my reasoning with regards to that stuff. Most people can't get over the fact that I'm taking away the value of human life... as if I was doing just that.

    And certainly, let us be friends.

    Marc.
