People are not inextricably selfish, nor are they selfless either.  The models of governance work best when they harness the energy of the tension between those two human traits. 

Even selfish people are going to have to deal with running out of oil at some point.

Not talking about oil.  I'm referring to dramatic changes in the climate of the Earth.  People will have two options once hundreds of millions are displaced:

1) come together and change for the better
2) War and genocide

I would like to think that we could get together and solve problems.  However, I believe we can predict history from past events. In that case, war and genocide are almost a certainty.
