Not to be the "Debbie Downer"

Not to be the "Debbie Downer" if the thread, but I don't believe in love. I remain steadfast in my belief that we are, all of us, self-interested smart animals. Philosophies, societies, religions...all of these things are artifice which distract us from the underlying truth that at any given moment, for any given reason people could go apeshit crazy. This is why the people at the "top" always become paranoid, oppressive and dictatorial. They are a reflection of the animal-human psyche at work.
