Brilliant and love are the only things coming to mind.

Oh and truth.

Bruce: All this proves is how small of a brain the Joker has.

Harhar.

As long as everybody gets their own bananas and shares with the few in their Monkeysphere, the system will thrive even though nobody is even trying to make the system thrive. This is perhaps how Ayn Rand would have put it, had she not been such a hateful bitch.

=D

Also, that whole article was win. I'd pretty much believed in the concepts, and even tried (and failed) to explain them to some other people before, but this had a very clean, concise, and humorous way to deliver the points. Kudos for the linkage.

As dr. House says in TB or not TB: There's an evolutionary imperative why we give a crap about our family and friends. And there's an evolutionary imperative why we don't give a crap about anybody else. If we loved all people indiscriminately, we couldn't function.

However, the article doesn't mention the concept of empathy. That's what makes most people able to cry when they see the faces of starving or dying children in a war zone. It's not the same sorrow or feeling as if you lost your own child, or your mother, or your best friend, but it is still a way to care for people that aren't in your monkeysphere. This monkeys don't have, but humans do.
