Here's a quote by Emerson that is kinda related to your idea of man's basic nature as being selfish...

"It is one of the most beautiful compensations of this life that no man can sincerely try to help another without helping himself."

I, for one, agree that man is "selfish", but this does not limit his actions to those that only benefit himself.
Service-To-Others  :cool:

World pollution, there's no solution
Institution, electrocution
Just black and white, rich or poor
Them and us, stop the war

-Alvin Lee

I used to do drugs, but I'll tell you something honestly about drugs, honestly, and I know it's not a very popular idea, you don't hear it very often anymore, but it is the truth- I had a great time doing drugs. Sorry. Never murdered anyone, never robbed anyone, never raped anyone, never beat anyone, never lost a job, a car, a house, a wife or kids, laughed my ass off, and went about my day. Sorry. Now, where's my commercial?

- Bill Hicks



--------------------
What if everything around you
Isn't quite as it seems?
What if all the world you think you know,
Is an elaborate dream?
And if you look at your reflection,
Is it all you want it to be?

that know why?"-Geddy Lee

..is a crusade only of the brave"-Les Claypool
