The Nature of Egoism

592.02Comment: We are all egoists. But the egoism of some is made such that they frankly rejoice if someone else gets blows.

My Response: Such is our egoism! No one is to blame for this. But to admit to oneself that one is like this must be very painful for a person. But deep down, we absolutely do not care what happens a millimeter away from us with someone else. And even if he’s worse, I feel better. This is our egoism.

When such events occur and I feel that egoism is aroused in me, I must understand that this is evil in me and I would like to somehow get rid of it, to correct it.

And you should not rejoice in the troubles of others. People do not understand that they are only harming themselves with this.
