The Average Nature of a Successful Species

To be a successful species, AND civilizationally advanced, the average member of the species is extremely selfish, when put in a crunch situation.

This is not a judgement, it is a fact.

This nature is extremely useful while the Species is expanding and helps the Species to survive and successfully propagate.

Wise men would do well to be aware of this when making laws, as people are much more prone to abuse laws when it comes to being personally advantageous to them.

Case in point, incentive-to-divorce laws, incentive-to-accuse laws, incentive-to-slander laws in ancient Greece, Mesopotamia, Egypt, Kingdom of Rome, United Kingdom and current "developed nations" of Earth's 20th and 21st century.

The more alarming trend of course is that ignoring this fact of the nature of successful species and enacting such laws contribute to eventual downfalls of the successful civilizations.
