Ethical egoism is the belief that any moral decision should be based on one's own self interest. An egoist only views something to be good if he possesses it. This leads to a strong sense of self preservation and ensures the person will not take chances to put himself in harm's way. The problem with it is that if everyone lived like this, society could eventually lead to a state where no one trusted anyone and it could be the downfall of society.
