If no one had cared for you, you probably wouldn't have been born, or if concieved by a mistake, you wouldn't have been raised, or if given to an
orphanage you would have instead been put on the street, you wouldn't have been fed, clothed, housed, educated, no one would have ever given you a
job, talked to you, interacted with you..............and if no one cared this website would not be here for you to express your opinion...........and
in fact the internet and even society would not exist.
We all have a duty to each other, who can say helping another in need is not one of best intrinsic rewards in life.
The few who do not feel this way are either sociopaths, psychopaths or have some kind of major pyschological and/or neurological damage.
It is my personal opinion, and I apologize if this sounds judgemental, it is just meant to be an observation, that adults who have no compassion and
give nothing back to society, especially in the West where we have so much compared with the rest of the world, are just parasites.
Of course competition exists, but without a great deal of care and cooperation the human species would not have made it this far.
I have no judgement for you, but profound pity that you lack empathy and have not found the joy that comes with giving of yourself to others.
If all took your attitude this would be a horrific world to live in, one that I would not want to be a part of.
Also, I find your title very disingenious and will probably skip any further threads from one who feels dishonesty is the best way to get
Peace...........I hope you find it.
PS - and your question, "Would you risk your life for a stranger?" is rather simplistic, as for most many factors would apply, such as, Do I have
young kids? What are my chances of dying? What are the chances of saving the person? etc etc I do not think such a situation is black
