A Quote by Johnathan Haidt on morality, psychology, and selfishness

 But the most important lesson I have learned in my twenty years or research on morality is that nearly all people are morally motivated.  Selfishness is a powerful force, particularly in the decisions of individuals, but whenever groups of people come together to make a sustained effort to change the world, you can bet that they are pursuing a vision of virtue, justice, or sacredness.
