So, we are all selfish to some degree on the basis of the second definition. So, one can eve selfish without the involvement of another person. For example, If one does not have children because they don't want the financial and emotional burden of raising them, it is a matter of self-interest not a disregard for non-existent children.

Of course, that's a given and goes without saying. WE all have our own self-interests at heart.

So, with that in mind. That alone doesn't make ME (or anyone else) actually "selfish" because I chose not to have kids for psycho-social and economic strategy reasons.


"It is a small gesture, but one that can be very effective - especially in a large crowd. So fart, and if you must, fart often. But always fart without apology. Fart for freedom, fart for liberty, and fart proudly" (Benjamin Franklin 'The Dream' 1751)
