the assurance of safety and social contracts are a result of self-interest, not sacrifice or caring about the group. people agreed to not murder other people because they didn't want to get murdered themselves.


Which is why we have corporations so that individuals can profit from criminal sociopathic behavior without becoming personally culpable, and even in the case that an individual does become the face of a particular set of crimes they can purchase protection with their gains. In other words, what's said in my signature.
In the corrupted currents of this world, offence's gilded hand may shove by justice, and oft 'tis seen the wicked prize itself buys out the law

Blame the courts for not adequately going after "criminal sociopathic behavior".

Greed is good, up to a point. It encourages innovation and improved living standards amongst a population. Unrestrained greed, however, winds up being a detriment to society. Under that, you have crony capitalism, environmental and worker abuses, and so on.

Growth is good, betterment is good, even desire can be quite good. Greed is the perversion of all of these into a all consuming need for more at all costs. Greed overrides logic and civilized behavior and turns us into little more than savages.
We rode on the winds of the rising storm, We ran to the sounds of the thunder. We danced amongst the lightning bolts, and tore the world asunder.
