Erskine, I hardly knew thee

So Caldwell took Margaret Bourke-White as a lover while married to Helen. And then later divorced Helen, married "kit". This sounds somewhat familiar.

I think self-centered ness is the biggest personal problem in our society today. It seems that most of the problems people have come from either their being selfish or their being affected by someone else who is selfish. Thoughtless, lacking in empathy or sympathy, incapable of thinking of others.

Would it be better if we were all selfish? I can see on an intellectual level how it might be. But I wonder if we would really survive, caring only for ourselves.
