self test A on the above          self  test B on the above


I admire those who wish to serve others either out of sense of civic duty, a desire to give back to the community, or just because they care about people suffering and struggling and want to help.  While not all of us can run for public office or work for a non-profit community service organization or volunteer to help the sick, deprived, uneducated, etcwe can show our support for dedicated public servants and non-profits. At times I‘ve felt good about giving my own time and energy or charitable contribution to aid such efforts. (Note: “Service is the rent we pay for being…the very purpose of life” as  M. W. Edelman put it.)


Once I thought people could be trusted, had good intentions, were decent, caring, honorable. Now I think otherwise:  humans are self-serving; many are corrupt: fraud / bribery follows them! Those who embrace altruism are deluded, not seeing misguided self-interest for what it is. Many “do gooders” are hypocrites, too stupid to see themselves as such.  I was once more accepting  and forgiving.  Now I am criticalsneering at, and finding fault with, much of what people do and say.  Most politicians are crooks. I don’t support “public servants”!
