you are rationalizing and making excuses instead of defending the correct moral principle - selfishness as the correct mode of a RATIONAL productive individual. Your argument sounds like - should CPAC provided car, hotel and food, it would be fair to expect from RP to sacrifice himself for a good cause - like promoting liberty for us and collective children of tomorrow.
PS BTW, that is how USA political religious right had lost arguments to socialists. They admitted (directly and indirectly) that capitalism is selfish and morally wrong - arguing only that socialism, while being nobel, is Utopia. Only Ayn Rand came out to set the record straight - capitalism is MORAL. Sacrifice is EVIL.
