Identifying competing with me for scarce opportunities and

Identifying which option is most likely egoist and explain why you think this is the case
Option C is the most egoist option. This is evidence by the words this just mean less people competing with me for scarce opportunities and resources, which indicates that the person is concerned with his/her own wellbeing and that is what egoism is all about ” a tradition which is based on self-interest rather than some idea of greater goods”
Tell us what you think of this option
We are always motivated by what we think is in the best interest for ourselves, that is referred to as psychological egoism. And if 20 000 children die why do I have to suffer as I take precautions for my actions. This makes me think of the Russian-American Philosopher Ayn Rands’book, ‘The Virtue of Selfishness’; “If any civilization is to survive, it is the morality of altruism that men have to reject.” which captures the essence of psychological egoism. In contrast, ethical egoism claims that even though we can act in others’ interest because we are concerned for others, we ought to always act in our own interest and that’s we do ‘selfless’ things and sugar-coat it to personally benefit from the outcome.
Reflect on your assignment 2 answer
In Assignment 2, I said that I believe it’s immoral for Whitey Basson to earn so much money however he deserved an adequate salary as he contributed his knowledge towards making a business a successful one. I also stated that there’s a lack of equality in society which is a major issue in our country and around the world as many people are still living in poverty mainly because of unemployment and rather use his earning to create employment to help fight poverty.
And in assignment 3 I said that if we can be perspective and help a child in need and do something together maybe we can see changes and save those innocent lives as no child deserve to die irrespective of the cost.
And I believe that both assignment 2 ; 3 were compatible.
