    Is there something wrong with that? I mean, you are the only you, you've got. If you think that progressives operate in a world devoid of self interest, you might need to take a closer look at your leaders. Even the Buddha says: "You are the center of the Universe." I think it is natural to operate from a position of self-interest and you can't change that. The only way to ensure some level of altruism is to incentivise it, not use force to bring it about. It is possible  to be as caring as many of you say you are on here and be libertarian.
