Sociopathic Selfishness needs to be eliminated from American Culture

This embrace of unbridled selfishness has not only drove economic inequality way beyond every other developed nation, to politicians not caring about harming people and the nation if they stand to profit, but a president who is willing to tear this country into pieces and kill hundreds of thousands if it benefits him. It's like everyone's allegiance to the country, society, and the welfare of the community is up for sale, and depends whether or not it benefits them personally. This is no way to run a society.

3. Please explain

Societies more worth living in tend to tamp down on sociopathic selfishness, and look at the priority as being cohesion, and the group. Not selfishness.

4. I was thinking about this just this morning

I was reading a thread on masks in a neighborhood forum. I felt like I was on the playground listening to kids fight over who got to use the swing first. I just wanted to cry.

We somehow have lost the ability to have concern for each other. It's all about me and my convenience and my stuff--and don't let anyone get in the way.
