    "What is greatness? I will answer: it is the capacity to live by the three fundamental values of John Galt: reason, purpose, self-esteem."

    Ethical Egoism believes it is moral or ethical to act in one’s own self-interest. This of course sets it apart from Max Stirner’s interpretation of egoism as Stirner rejected the very idea of morality.

    He believes that just because he could, doesn't mean he should unless it's not considered immoral to his POV and really does fit his self-interest in the outcome. For example, he could rob a bank because it'll give him money in spite of others, but wouldn't because he feels it really wouldn't benefit him in any way, other than "more money in his wallet".

    He believes humans are prone to selfish nature because of their morals, but believes actions can be seen as right or wrong. On altruistic matters, he'll go out of his way to help others but only because he believes he gets prizes in the end, making him come off as manipulative.

    • Consequentialism - I see the consequences of things from that might be adovcated by my ego but universally considered wrongful.
    • Pacifism - Why would it be a desire to harm others' interests when I can just focus on myself?

    Neutral[edit | edit source]

    • Altruism - I could help you in your cause, but only if I get something in return. Helping others makes me feel good as long as it's my obligation, otherwise, I couldn't care about your selfless cause.
    • Psychological Egoism - Fellow Egoist, what makes you think all actions and beliefs subconscious or not, inherently revolve around self-interest?
    • Moral Universalism - We are compatible, I'm just saying that self-interest and not the collective good is the main moral value.
