Hi Michel!

Well, isn't this the very, very characterization of a human society? I
mean a human society is defined by individuals profiting from the
society. So what can be wrong with this?

Erm - I don't know quite which dictionary you're using (perhaps a
Microsoft one) but unless your definition of "profit" is non-standard,
this makes no sense.

Societies are collections of individuals interacting.

Making money - or indeed any net benefit - has little or nothing to do
with this.

cheers, Rich.
