Question from Facebook: I love my egoism. For others it might be a problem, but not for me. Why should I do anything about it?
Answer: You don’t have to do anything about it. But others around you who are also egoists do not want to do anything about their egoism either. And little by little you will begin to devour each other. Eventually we will come to a place where we will need to begin to cooperate because technology and nature is arranged against the individual. The surrounding world is entirely closed and integral. And all this exerts a great deal of pressure on us.
We cannot be different. Our innate nature is egoistic. And it is beginning to devour itself. We see that humanity is losing its orientation to freedom, the future, and even to caring about children or family, etc.
If we simply want to drag out our existence and die out like dinosaurs, then it’s fine. But if we want to live, we need to change ourselves. And nature is showing us which way to change.
Question: Is the statement “I love my egoism” correct?
Answer: It’s completely true. But what can we do? We will need to part with the method used now. Receiving only for ourselves, using our egoism only for our own benefit, will not work. We need to learn to use it for the common good, and then you will be fine, and your egoism will be very comfortable.
