>>19044>The humans are social argument is wrong. People are social to benefit themselves ultimately.
These two statements contradict each other, social is social it matters not why… acting out of instinct has no motives or higher purpose its all "becuz I wanted to" "becuz I felt like it"
Okay so, from what I gather (correct me if I'm wrong) the whole point your making is "people never do anything out of the goodness of there hearts, they do things because of selfish or instinctual reasons"
To which I respond with "So?"
I suppose your disillusioned with the the concept of "caring", seeing it for what it really it but dose that really change anything? Regardless of how it happens, instinct, selfish motives, whatever, caring benefits everyone and is generally good.
Whatever it is thats going on only seems to be working out for humans, we are more prevalent than ever.
