Selfishness can be based on perception though.
What if they thought your choice was selfish?
Survival is important, on this I can agree, but what of the survival of the family unit?
This is something that should be discussed, and I have with my significant other, who suffers from MS, and can't walk for long periods of time, even if it is just in the grocery store. He would want me to survive knowing he wouldn't, and I the same.
I understand your thought on perception, I think, because if truth be known, I don't think anybody knows for sure what they will do, until confronted in a situation.
A question for you. If you were with a group of people (relatives) in a bad fire where there was only one exit, would you try to get them all out, or would you be stepping over all of them to get to the one exit, knowing that not everyone would not make it out?
I do believe self preservation comes to the forefront in some situations, no matter who you are with.
Survival of the family unit is very important, but if only 1 or a few can go on to live, leaving a few behind, then that is better than all of them parishing.
Would You Sacrifice Your Loved Ones, If They Might Get You Killed, Or Would Be Used Against You?

I would NOT sacrifice any human being for my own sake. NOT family, NOT friends, NOT strangers. We are one. Be as one. Live as one. Die as one.
