Every man for himself. What a dejected principle to live by.
We only check out others when we needs something. We are nice to others only if others have something to offer back. We are fast to abandon others when they are no longer of any use to us. We resort to duplicity and ingratiate with aristocracy to get what we want.
The pitch no string attached has an invisible thread attached.
It takes courage to be altruistic. Life only becomes purposeful when it serves humanity, no matter how little.
