What kind of work do you do?
The kind where I don't.
I'm 313 pounds living on disability. All I do is play Darkfall.
If by "human behavior" you mean "human nature", then no not really, it's not exactly just human nature its "nature vs nurture", so yes we are all genetically selfish to some degree and selfless to another, but what degree that is would be largely determined your environment. You may have particular genes that make you more selfish, but whether those genes are activated or not for instance is dependent on the environment live in. There is also the "pendulum" concept on top of this, so yes right now greed may be the dominate driving force in our environments we are raised in but people have gotten so over the top greedy/egotistical we have almost hit rock bottom and people see greed/ego as less of a virtue and more of a problem, it's just so obvious to everyone now since it's gotten so bad, people are starting to change. The lies we were all taught about how greed is good are proven false everyday the more greedy we get, the pendulum will shift.
Yeah I figured. Even though you joking I bet it aint far from the truth. I don't think you have a disability and weight that much though
I'm worried about your mental state. Is there anyway I can help you? I'm a healthcare worker.
If you need to get anything off your chest just drop me a pm. It will stay between us in full respect.
You're right, I did lie.
I weigh 342...
In what field of "healthcare" do you specialize in?
I only ask because I really need someone to tell me what this growth is on my penis (I don't bathe very often).

What school did you go to?
I have never been taught greed is good : /
Brainwashing doesn't work if you know it's happening.
I went to a very poor school in Texas, you are Canadian? That may be why. Very different places I imagine.
Besides, it's not just specifically taught in school, in all aspects of life we are taught greed is good we just disguise it as "individualism" and "logic > emotion", bullshit ilke that. Imagine reading an Ayn Rand science fiction book, the moral of the stories will undoubtedly be Social Darwinistic (pro-greed/selfishness) even though it's just a science fiction book there is an entire way of thinking that is being enforced. That's just an example of one person with one subject, almost all of our movies/music/shows are about how greed is fucking awesome.
For example, what's the type of music that gets the most play on the radio/TV right now? "I got money you dont, I got a limo you dont mwahaha" nonsense like that which is sold to rich white kids in the suburbs.
An interesting fact about many science fiction books,
During "the red scare" when communist ideas were basically banned (blacklisted), many people who wanted to talk about communism but were unable used science fiction as a way to do it in disguise. Instead of "worker" vs "owner", they replaced it with "human" vs "alien" or w.e., but their intention was very clear and they admitted later on they were pushing communist ideas in their books the same way Ayn Rand was pushing Social Darwinistic (Nazi) ideas in her science fiction books, although her books were put on a pedestal and kids were forced to read it.
Just a weird coincidence but right after saying all of this I happened to see a brand new Phillip DeFranco video showing proof from a study of what I've been saying about how we are basically taught to be greedy little fucks, but we can also be taught not to be
"Results suggest that momentary exposure to and regular consumption of materialistic media messages (MMM's) induces stronger materialism and anti-welfare attitudes"
This thread ran it's course.
