'Love thy neighbour as thyself' does not bode well for neighbours

In our bid for normal adulthood we hurled our libidinal harpoons out into the unknown, hoping to wind them back with a big enough catch to feed our sexual hunger for ever.

 But this self-centred theory of love was  pretty decisively abandoned during the 20th century.

 Freud’s own consulting-room, for a start, received hundreds of patients whose problem was that they liked themselves too little, not too much

They could not even make it to the classic moral starting line, and it would be bad news indeed if they were to love their neighbours as themselves.
