With DART going through some trouble recently with drama. I have now seen the issue with all the drama

It is selfishness

Selfishness is the root cause for drama on DART

Everyone is to blame for it, including myself. From Wylted, bsh1, to even the small member barely contributing, this has blown up because of selfishness.

Human flaw, oh god the irony.

The flaw isn't selfishness, it's lack of caring about the selfishness of others.

But do not worry, the warrior of the selfish shall arise in time. Patience is the key.

You think the issue is selfishness right? Stop being so selfish, start serving our drama and fuelling our fire. Good, selfless servant of the drama cult.

Best thing to do is make another post about it. Or a short story

I mean, doesn't selfishness have something to do with most of humanity's problems?

What is wrong with being selfish? We are self-owners who care primarily for ourselves more than anyone else. That's how the human race has stayed alive for so long.

Nothing is wrong with being selfish

However, some extreme cases it is time to turn off selfishness

In this context, I was interpreting "selfishness" as "selfishness at the expense of others, or of the common good".

Not always. There are many events throughout human history where selflessness benefitted society.

The humble ant has survived by being selfless.
