Selfless people hate rules and laws. Selfish people are obsessed with them. Why?
Selfish need them to live in peace. Selfish people believe everyone thinks like they do. Always looking for a way to screw others and gain for themselves so they need to establish law and order if for no other reason but peace of mind.
Selfless people find laws and rules extremely intrusive and limiting in their ability to work and function on behalf of others. They would never intentionally hurt another to begin with so having 17 million laws protecting people inhibits their ability to help the world which is really their true desire.
