Unless/until humans evolve to something quite beyond where we currently are, few of us are going to want to work as hard for the common good as we are for personal gain. I know this to be true of myself. I'll do more for those I love. But even then, over a long period of time, I won't do as much as I will for myself. I don't think I am all that unusual in this regard. The late USSR proved this point to my satisfaction.

Sorry, I extrapolated, and I quite possibly did so errouneously.
