    Nevertheless, it's still a violation.

        Nirude, have you read Bone Dance by Emma Bull? It features a race(?) called the horsemen who do exactly what you're suggesting--let's just say they're not the heroes.

          Nope. Is it sci-fi? If so, I'll give it a read

            Yes, it is.

              Thanks. The synopsis reads a little like SGU itself (the ancient stone thingy). Could be interesting

                Never watched SGU so I don't know his character traits.

                    I'd say he was a selfless scientist focused on the advancement of humans/destiny's mission above all else. So yeah, a pragmatist but not so much "selfish" despite coming across that way.

                      Of course he was selfish. He doesn't care who gets hurt as long as his "mission" is carried out. Especially in S1. Everyone was put into danger on Destiny because of his selfish nature

                        I was going to point out that even selfless scientists can be selfish, if their selflessness means they make decisions for others and insist that others be equally as selfless.

                        IOW, making decisions affecting many without consideration of anything other than personal desires and goals.

                          Heh. In that case I'd say the line between selfishness and selflessness is a fine one indeed. I'm sure philosophers have debated this better than we ever can. Ma'chello probably knows though.

                            Selfishness is a part of human nature - without being selfish no individual and consequently no species could survive. The task is to find the right amount of selfishness.

                              I would like to assume most of us wouldn't be selfish to the point we would sacrifice lives

                                Two billion sacrified themselves for Ma'chello, without that sacrifice the Tau'ri wouldn't be free (according to Ma'chello, unless he is lying). Food for thought On this topic its difficult to come up with a motto that is universal to every situation.
