Rational Self Interest

Assuming self-interest is rational, by punishing all non-reciprocating choices via law, acting in group interest becomes rational.

I don’t care if you reciprocate by rational self-interest or as a result of high prosociality, as long as you reciprocate.

Assuming the maximization of group fitness has higher potential yields to individual fitness than any other factor, and assuming the maximization of individual fitness is desired, this is rational self-interest.
