Selfishness is healthy. When will people start to view selfishness positively, even embracing it

instead of viewing it negatively? Isn't selfishness integral to happiness & that being selfish is a normal part of being human? Don't people want the best for themselves? Conversely, what is so great about self-sacrifice when the end result is enabling people to become dependent & entitled, always expecting & wanting you to rescue/help them in one form or another?

    THANK YOU, selfishness is a GOOD THING! Without selfishness, there would be no impetus to succeed-to want better. Selfishness should be applauded instead of denigrated.
