TOLFA Segment 4, Question 4

If self esteem can be enhanced by doing acts of positive kindness, what can be so wrong about the ethics of self-sacrifice? - such acts either help the actor or hinder him, but you can't have it both ways. I agree. You're being too quick to dump 2,000 years of reflection by tens of thousands of very good people
There's no contradiction; if such positive intervention brings the donor pleasure, it's good; if not, he won't continue. Either way, his motive is sound: self-interest
What's "so bad" about that ethical system is that it arrogantly condemns about half the human race to a morally second-class status.

Don't hurry away; even when you've got the right answer, try clicking on the others to see why they are wrong! Then when you have correctly answered this make notes in your student notebook, then go to Question 5.
