This is more evidence of apathy within various cultures around the world.
Taking advantage of a person because you can (Expressing Dominance) or because they are being nice. Is wrong and harmful to a person who is being nice and civil. Taking or getting as much as you can from a friendly and nice person. Will not only come to an end for you but may also cause that friendly and nice person from ever helping or assisting any other person. So by you taking advantage in order to get more for yourself is an illusion. Yes, in the short term you may get a small percentage of more. But, in the long term you will get nothing more. So, the advantage is not yours and you are not only harming a good person. You are harming yourself. Which is not logical.
Animals are opportunistic creatures. Humans who take advantage of other people are De-evolving themselves down to that of animals.
Taking advantage of another person without any concern or care for the future or for that person is you choosing to De-evolving yourself to that of any other lower animal.
Here we have identified apathy, De-evolution and Selfish greed.
None of which advances the Human race in any way. It only De-evolves humanity into something which is less than.
