specific advancement at the cost of others.
Not good enough. One's care towards his children isn't self-interest?
towards his friends? his parents?
The artificial devision only drive us away of understanding the actual
state. Self-interest covers the individual's interest in the most
general manner.
One cares towards himself, his friends, his family, his values, his
life, his society\nation\tribe, and it's *all* self-interest. It works
fine in a tribe in which all knows all, but it can't work in
metropolines of millions of people.
Alienation is the problem of Anarchy, and in fact of all other regimes
too. Democracy isn't stable when you have statu\etnho-centric lobbies
within it which see for their own tribe's interests rather than those of
the whole. Fascism speaks of the 'nation' as an entity of its own and
Nazism of the 'race' in the same way. Both are popular because they give
oneself a solid status in his own tribe.
