Everybody has a world view, I thought I might share mine. Everyone including myself, is in the end for themselves, not in the end in the means for the ends of others. This means that I should exist for my own sake, I swear by my life, and my love of it, that I will never live for the sake of another man, nor ask another man to live for mine. If I must do business with other it should be as a value exchange, if someone offers something of value, I offer him with something of equal value. Everything has value, everything is a means of exchange. We lose this aspect of humanism when people talk unfairly of selfish acts. The act of being selfish is the act that drives all things, even love is a selfish act. Someone sees value in you, you see value in them, and you exchange. Only then can loved be maintained, and only then can love prosper. This love that drives all things, is the same love that brought us from scattered tribes to thriving metropolises. Love is a spiritual exchange, and only those who do not understand this lose sight of love, who are also those who cannot grasp it. The only way to end poverty is not through giving money to people but to teach people the ability to become productive and to offer a value exchange. Sure you might be able to give a man some fish, but woe to me if you teach him how to fish. Such is the way of life and the pursuit of happiness.
