Think about it. If I am generous, I am doing something for someone else, but if I don't do something for someone else, I will have a guilty conscience, and therefore in being selfless, I am being selfish because I don't want the feeling of guilt. So is selflessness an essentially meaningless word? Are we all being selfish, and doing generous things to erase the feeling of guilt?

Also, are morals able to exist only because the feeling of guilt exists? Have we felt progressively less guilty about things over time? Does technology advancement factor into this? It wasn't long ago that humanity embraced the idea of chivalry and honour, fighting fair, but then, all of a sudden, poison gas, total war, etc. The moral code of war has been degrading ever since.

What do you guys think? I literally have nothing better to think about, so I might as well hear some opinions.

Wait, are you actually looking for a hobby?

I suggest fencing, don't fence Bulgarians, though (they will destroy you).

if you're looking for a hobby then I suggest stalking little girls and luring children in a van, promising them candy

I suggest running for the Parliament/Senate of your country, becoming something powerful, then committing genocide.

Do you have any answers for the questions youre asking? I think youre bumping up against some of the unexamined social programming that 'free thinkers' like to try and tear down.

I have concluded that everything I do, I do for myself, either for benefit or to keep a clear conscience. Whether or not that makes me a bad person, I do not know.

That was great, Thomas. As for instruments, I play an alto sax, but it gets old. I think I might pick up drawing. I guess I could make money off it, so it's all good. Thank you all for recommending hobbies!

Why the automatic assumption that selfishness is wrong?

Because, if you don't care for others, then you get Capatalism's horrors.
