I'm from America. The south to be more specific. I lean toward the conservative side. I am a Christian. I plan to eventually go to law school. I love music, history, English, social sciences, and Glee. I consider myself a writer, and am thinking about majoring in journalism. I read whenever I have spare time. Harry Potter, Twilight, Eragon, and Nicholas Sparks are among my favorites. Glee is the best TV show ever, but I like (or liked) American Idol, Arrested Development, Modern Family and Friends as well. My music includes Taylor Swift, Glee cast, Train, Carrie Underwood, David Archuleta, David Cook, Daughtry, Coldplay, Elton John, Billy Joel, and I will always love cheesy 80s music.
Selfish-to-selfless is a continuum and each person, each brain, is different. Every society needs people from both ends of the spectrum - those willing to fight for all they can get, and those willing to put their needs aside for the benefit of others. A society made entirely of selfless people would never advance; and one of purely selfish people would crumble under the strain of its own weight. Greed is as important to a society as is charity; and both must coexist in abundance for a culture to be truly balanced.
The problem with today is that people are so focused on having all the knowledge in the world, or being as culturally experienced as possible, or making sure there is total equality. We should really be focused on being as patient, kind, loving, compassionate, and humble as we can be.
