I really would not give you a very complicated answer as Mr Vijay. I would just say that it is the human nature to think only about himself/herself or those closed to them. They think that their way of thinking is the best. And they do take many irrational decisions which may effect the life of another person. They think that whatever they are thinking is the best for everyone. You would find very few people who would work for others like Mother Teresa.

Because everybody has its own way of thinking and own perspective....and its pretty difficult to do that....you cant force anyone to adopt your ideas and work on it....after a certain age you feel like wahtever you are doing is CORRECT....and if somebody tries to deter you from that path then it becomes worse.

Well,your question,has something of Philosophy,some of Logic,some of Biology..... The problem is that nature has provided us,with some genes,needs and some emotions. As one ages,and as one's needs gets satisfied,one'soutlook changes. One is influenced b one's group-that is religion,gender,nation,etc which are group experiences handed over to us rom one generation to the next. Then you have got the vested interests,which is nothing,but "NEEDS",mentioneed earlier. Mainly,becuse of these,one is not able to put oneself,in the other person's shoes. If you look at it in another wy,it seems,Nature has decided that,the perception of different Groups,differ!
