    I picked the human race because without it we would all have nothing.

    i lost the human race
    So follow me into the desert
    As desperate as you are
    Where the moon is glued to a picture of heaven
    And all the little pigs have God

    Re: Who or what do you care most about?

    Making up my own list...

    God (note that I didn't say 'my religion and its followers'... not quite the same thing...)
    My son
    My self
    Other close family
    Close friends
    People who share similar values to mine and are part of my life in some sense.
    Community
    Home State
    USA
    My dogs, cats and other critters
    US allied nations
    .... everybody else falls somewhere around here, and I figure the environment can largely take care of itself...


    I see CC's transaction argument. You could choose to look at it that way. I get something out of every relationship at every level listed so there's an argument to be made there, I suppose.

    The two that I listed above "self" are the two that I consistenty sacrifice for and place ahead of my own wants and even needs; this is true regardless of what perspective you want to take on why I do so.

    I chose the Human race. Don't get me wrong I love my family and friends but I also want the people of the future to enjoy that also. I don't think this is possible however at the rate we are destroying this planet.

    To make things more interesting, list the top ones you would choose in a post. Feel free to add anything I didn't include.

    For me:
    1. The planet / ecosystem as a whole
    2. The human race as a whole
    3. My family and friends
    4. Myself
    5. My country
    Do you care the most about the biosphere because humanity is dependent upon it for survival or because you have some idealized version of the biosphere that humans are ruining?

    The reason I ask is because I cannot understand caring more about the "planet / ecosystem" than my family or the human race.

    For me, I care most about the people I love. I place them above all else.

    People who think in such very broad terms worry me. Often, they forget to remember that "the human race" consists of individuals, each with their own unique life, values, wants, needs. It can lead to terrible oppression in the name of "the common good".
