Andrew Bernstein Quote

“Altruism demands that an individual serve others, but doesn’t stipulate whether those others should be one’s family, or the homeless, or society as a whole. Collectivism states that, in politics, society comes first and the individual must obey.  Collectivism is the application of the altruist ethics to politics.”

I do not believe "altruism" can authoritatively demand anything. The rest doesn't sound like an individual that wrote the Capitalist Manifesto.

As someone said, we are here to help others, what the others are here for, I don't know.
