Yep, it's called the manufacture of consent for a reason. It's their business plan.

They know that when educated, nothing can stop the power of the people.

Either way, look -- every single thing you do is self motivated, unless perhaps you've got a gun to your head, but even then if you do it because you want to preserve yourself, it's selfish. Whether you're conscious of it or not, everything you do has selfish motivations. Making a "thought-crime" out of a subconscious emotion is no way to go about trying to control it. Nor should we even try to stop an unstoppable engine. Don't think shaming yourself or others is going to turn off the single most powerful impulse animals have. It's a fruitless venture, and the chastising of greed is just one of the brainwashing tools used by religion to abuse and extort people. Relinquish this superstition.

You know, it's not the only emotion they misuse to extort people, take pride for instance. It's a force for good in an enlightened mind. If a man doesn't care about awards, honors, respect and decoration -- why would he strive to earn it? If a community isn't proud of its neighborhood, what could motivate them to beautify it? Making "thought-crimes" out of emotions we can't avoid, seriously? And you don't see this for what it is? It's an underhanded trick used by con artists, not a method of improving people's character.


I'm not saying it's "wrong" to be selfish and we should all be selfless machines, I'm saying people shouldn't kill and make people suffer. I still don't believe that everything people do is self motivated otherwise there would be nobody that would sacrifice their life for others as our most basic instinct is to preserve our own life.


Do you know why social animals have an advantage over other animals? Because they're hardwired with the understanding that it is to their benefit to cooperate. This is not a topic which would earn you a doctoral in evolutionary psychology, it's so basic it's obvious. We're social animals as well... That's why we do it too... And low and behold it really is to our benefit -- still -- to this very day in fact and probably forever more. It's a reality that selfishness which encompasses your troop, leads to self benefit. In the animal world and ours. I'm not making this crap up, feel free to read a book.

As for your notions of adequate determinism, well, I can't educate everyone. Some people are immune to reality.

Flat out man -- everything you do is self motivated because you're the "self" doing it.

Even sacrificing yourself for another is selfish, you're the one that made that choice, you had your own reasons.

If you can't follow basic logic and basic psychology and basic philosophic reasoning, there really isn't any pathway open to your mind. You're blocked off from knowledge by your own, frankly ignorant, personal bias. So, I gotta give up man, I can't waste all my time on the internet explaining the same simple concept over and over. I've tackled this from every conceivable direction.

Even from Season 1? A lot of those were comic relief. When they got their first set of power upgrades I think it was during the Doom Tree plot arc it started getting sorta heavy.

It's pretty useful if you happen to argue against a guy.

Most of the time if a guy sees a girl crying during a heated argument, he'll soften his stance a little and just try to make her less upset.

then let me have the last word in this conversation. you are completely arrogant. I understand what you're saying I just don't agree. selfishness would not exist if there were not an opposite state. I 'm sure when the word selfish came about it wasn't used to explain any action someone takes. It is we humans who made language and I think you'll find most people including educated people would call sacrificing yourself a selfless act, unless of course they think they are smarter than everyone else and try to break down every word without actually thinking about the meaning behind the sentence.

It's not really weird, but I tear up when someone yells at me. When I argue I usually have tears in my eyes because I'm stupid. When I was younger, like in elementary, I would tear up whenever I would see someone died on the news or something like that. I'm just a baby everything makes me want to cry.
