well if you want to come at it from the angle of gain then you could argue that it will be better for you to live in a society where people are considerate towards each other

when it is your turn to become old then your life will be easier if society is considerate towards you

our society is being socially engineered towards one where people have no sense of civic duty and no sense of having a stake in wider society. Its being moulded into a more alienated, atomised and self centred society and ultimately this will make life shitter for everyone

If people are convinced to only look out for themselves then they simply become cogs in the technocratic machine and will never seek to stand with others to organise against oppression. Instead they will only ever look to see what scraps they can get from the system. that is slavery. they will just be slaves on a plantation
