The Greatest Good

The “greatest good” and my personal desires are usually one and the same. In other words, since I always desire to do the most good, I'm never really selfish. The greatest good is the greatest amount of total overall good for everyone involved, not just me, and not just anyone else. But if one person is affected the worst or perhaps the most severely by whatever it is, then I might put that persons needs above others. A child's needs, because they are greater, would also often come before others.
