s'aimer ou ne pas s'aimer

I was on my way to work one morning last week when I saw the magazine cover below on the wall of a kiosk.

It's the June 2014 issue of a magazine named "Philosophie" and the main title on the cover is "Faut-il s'aimer soi-même ?"  Those words translate to "Does one have to love oneself ?" in English.

C'mon.  Really?

Is there more than one logical answer to this question?

Well, for the purposes of philosophical debate, there are several answers.  However, as far as the well-being of human beings is concerned, I see only one.

And, in my opinion, choosing to love yourself does not necessarily mean that the sole object of this love is yourself.
