I fully agree with the above quoted material, as it matches my empirical
data on how the vast majority of humans do function. I also agree with
the passage on communism/socialism, having done empirical studies of it
in the real world. Bluntly, communism/socialism does not work, due to
inherent flaws in its structure. It lacks freedom from oppression.
