So you're equating self interest as selfishness LOL. Look self interest is not a bad thing looking out for the important people in your life versus complete strangers is not a bad thing. And looking out for yourself over looking out for others is not wrong either because you have to take care of yourself.

Shortcomings? I help people on a daily basis and just this morning some homeless dude walked in to a Wendys everyone blew him off and I just gave him half of my breakfast and i expected nothing in return and I don't even have a steady and stable job. SO PLEASE GO FUCK YOURSELF.


Self interest is selfishness mate. Your [insert applicable love (ed) ones here] have no more real worth then the other nearly 7 billion people out there. They all have their own hopes, dreams, fears, wants, and needs and pretending any of them are worth less then those of the people we actually know is selfishness of the worse kind. We are a race not some collection of individuals only looking out for what matters only to us as individuals. Or we would be if people like you stopped dragging down the rest of us to your petty way of thinking.

Iook since when have i dragged everybody down all I've stated is that everybody has their own interest and there is nothing wrong with that and I said nothing about people's dreams being worthless compared to others THAT IS ALL ON YOU THAT IS YOUR INTERPRETATION OF THINGS BECAUSE IT IS WITHIN YOUR OWN INTEREST AND VIEWS TO INTERPRET IT AS SUCH.

AND ANOTHER THING WE ARE INDIVIDUALS WE ARE CAPABLE OF THINKING AND ACTING OUTSIDE OF A COLLECTIVE OUTSIDE OF OUR OWN RACE AND ULTIMATELY WE ARE ALSO RESPONSIBLE FOR OUR OWN ACTIONS.

AND I HAVE HELPED PEOPLE SO GO FUCK YOURSELF AGAIN.

I like to think that I know what I am biased towards/against, unless I have no opinion on something...

First thing is first mate, this ain't the army and you're no drill instructor so there is no need for shouting. Secondly why do you think self interest and putting ourselves before others is a good thing? And while I can't argue against personal responsibility even as a firm believer in law and order even I have to admit sometimes the choices that are available to some individuals aren't always pretty. I myself have had to do things that the people I care about might not entirely agree with. So we can't simply throw out the baby with the bathwater to appease the concept of personal responsibility.

It could be an intense, irrational affection for them. That'd be a 'bias' as well.

Well first i'm pissed off because you're reinterpreting my own words in your image and I absolutely loathe people who do that. Secondly, the problem is that both you and I interpret self interest differently you interpret it in a negative connotation while i view it in a more neutral light not good or bad and again; you are looking at self interest as absolutely bad and bringing it up examples to fit that view point of yours. I view it as a 50/50 at the end of the day it's a matter of interpretation but what i don't appreciate is anyone interpreting what i say and attack me based on their interpretations.

And yes I'm well aware of the things people have to do in order to survive and yes i agree its not going to be pretty.

Including the kids that have to flip burgers to make it through college and not all of them are judgmental or opinionated and vocal...........but oh wait that isn't what you meant you were referring to just one kid that you met or a handful of them. Oh well let me reinterpret that as though you as though you are talking about all of them. But nope not going to do it because its your message and not mine.

I am always truthful, direct, and forthright in everything I say and do. if that is bias then I don't care to be unbiased. Since that would make me a liar and a worthless individual.


Yeah, there's no bias there.

Anyone who claims to be 100% bias free is lying to themselves. We all have biases that are shaped by our own individual life experiences.

You do realise you've failed to point out any beneficial aspects of putting the few above the many right mate?

Yeah there is no bias there, all I have to do is ask a large enough group of said emo cunts their opinion and I'll be proven right each and every single time. And furthermore when you ask them what sort of experiences give them this negative opinion you get nothing but news sites, talking with their friends, etc. Not a single one of them ever has had any actual experience seeing the Middle East in person. I don't know about you but I tend to avoid giving an opinion about anything I don't have an actual hands on experience with.

Alright fine lets do this slowly:

1) Nobody will truly look out for you at the end of the day if you want something done you got to do it yourself.
2) Looking out for yourself, because no one will do the same for you and if they do you're not living your life.
3) This is what my parents taught me, A lesson that i still try to incorporate and live up to.

EXAMPLE: Student A helped Student B study to prep for his exam next week and tutored him throughout the entire week but Student A also has to worry about studying for his own exams so after Student B took and passed his exams Student A decides to focus on his studies because if he fails the exams he fails his classes and won't graduate anytime soon. Student B calls up Student A again for help on even more studies Student A declined because he has his own studies to take care of. Now does that make Student A an asshole for looking out for himself? No it doesn't because he has to pass and take care of his own shit.

LOL. The fact that you can't see the bias there is hilarious to me, but keep on going with this whole 'holier-than-thou I'm in the military so I'm better than the common man' shtick. Anybody who can't admit their own faults has no chance of ever fixing them.
