Cultural Quote #262: Selfishness Is For Dummies

The idea that your idea is your self-interest is somehow opposed to other people’s, or if you maximize your self-interest, that you’re not operating in the best interests of other people is predicated on a poor idea of what constitutes your self-interest, because you’re not separate in any real sense from other people. You’re maybe not separated from everything in some real sense.
