People

They aren’t inherently good. They aren’t inherently bad. When push comes to shove, people look out for themselves. I’m no exception. When I’m not consciously thinking about it, I act in such a way as to take care of myself. No, I don’t think that’s the right way to live, but yes, I feel like it’s a common human default. That is why I’m always consciously thinking about how I can act in such a way as to help others. I know that in the absence of such thoughts, my actions will be those that, as the calculus of the moment dictates, bring benefit to yours truly.
