I recently read a couple of quotes that are, in a skewed sort of way,
relevant to this thread. At least, I think they are.

"It is just as foolish to complain that people are selfish and
treacherous as it is to complain that the magnetic field does not
increase unless the electric field has a curl."

John von Neumann

"As a general rule today a biologist seeing one animal doing something
to benefit another assumes either that it is manipulated by the other
individual or that it is being subtly selfish."

George Williams

Do you get it? I think I do, but I'm not sure.
