Fact of Life: Personal gain and social gain
You may have noticed that there are several other people wandering around this planet with you that want essentially the same thing that you do. The question is, how do the choices you make in life affect those other people? Do you want to help them? Do you want to hurt them? Do you care? Like it or not, every action we take tends to have an effect on someone else. Eating the last piece of pie makes it so that no one else may have that slice. Creating a better way to bake pie makes it possible for many more people to enjoy even more pie.
Every choice you make has benefits and consequences, both short term and long term effects for you and for other people. You can outline these effects for huge decisions like whether or not to invade another country, or even whether or not to go get a taco.
