America is greedy because I said so!
I wasn’t talking about the entire Western world or any other nations.
I was talking about the supposed “greatest nation ever”
But to your point.
Indeed, we all partake in this vast ocean of pain. I would be a self righteous dude to think otherwise.
On the other hand, I am allowed the freedom to judge things based on my raising in the Judeo-Christian, and in my case Islamic, Buddhist, Hiindu, as well, traditions of Charity, Love, Unity, and that behind all our selfish greedy actions . . . somewhere is a better inner human that we all should try to become.
Sharing the spoils and wealth of the world is a good beginning,
Feeding the starving children in the world is also a good beginning
Even supporting the middle and lower classes of people in America to a half decent life is also a start, AS MANY OF THE EUROPEAN COUNTRIES DO.
And many other things that could and should be done to make the world a better one.
I HAVE A STANDARD OF ETHICS AND MORALITY. Though I don’t claim perfection, only that I seek to become better.
