Fantastic post. The discussion about altriusm is really key to many of this country's woes at this time.

Ayn Rand, in her writing, warned of the dangers of altruism. I read her extensively in college, but I never quite got what she meant. Today, having just now googled the meaning of the word, I do. The google definition is: the belief in or practice of disinterested and selfless concern for the well-being of others.

The issue with altruism, which I had always lauded as virtue, is not the concern for the well-being of others. I have always been concerned for the well-being of others, occasionally selflessly, but never with disinterest. The issue is the disinterest!
