Studies done on babies indicate natural presence of altruism Nature made sure cooperation is in genes so that species is more successful But our way of life kills altruism and replaces it with selfishness in all aspects I think people overall are predatory creatures now. Those that are not willing to kill themselves are perfectly content to watch someone else do the killing in name of whatever government calls for. Freedom or safety or patriotism I see this in people like my father, and I see this on ET all the time with people like BSAM or Ivanovich and countless others Ultimately people deserve their Bush and wars and completely fucked economy and they deserve their Obama and more power to The FED. People deserve lies upon lies from their government because people are shit too. People are not victims. Victims are innocent. People are not innocent, people are shit.
