Re: To be a Hedonist is to be an egoist

Not quite; hedonism (stand corrected) is being motivated by pleasure and what makes them feel good.   Egoism is motivated by what makes them look good.  Altruism in it's pure form is just idealism and don't truly exists if you ask me.   Unfortunately there are many folk that call themselfs altruist and in reality want to force their beliefs on others.   This isn't altruism anymore; this is totalitarianism.   A true altruists makes sacrifices for others and don't expect anything in return.   A totalitarianist forces all to make sacrifices for what they believe is the better good for all, but that begs the questions, who makes the decision for the collective?   There's always a dictator under such situations and that's why this form of thought is dead on arival to me.
