Many believe that people tend to be selfish and greedy, especially libertarians who say government should not be in the business of helping those in need and protecting us from voracious corporations. In reality libertarians believe humans are social animals, and most adopt the "good neighbour" policy. Gene Balfour provides an example of neighbours helping those whose homes were damaged in the spring floods. In a second article he recommends that the government should give citizens more choices by allowing and encouraging competition for services currently provided by government-mandated monopolies.
