Exactly. Give me a situation where steeling is profitable, I would steal sooner than later (of course without hurting anyone) . And if I wouldn't, someone else would. The opportunity to steel only points to a bug in the security system, that needs to be fixed. So egoism is really the driving force behind improvements of the legal and economical systems. In fact, they probably wouldn't exist without egoism.
