Most people will never admit it but greed motivates everything they do. Look at nature, squirrels hoard nuts in trees, in the ground in your attic, anywhere they can---all for themselves. In return for their greed nature provides us with more trees. The greedy squirrels never will find all the nuts they hid for themselves. Consequently many of those nuts grow into trees---which will feed thousands of other animals, insects and even humans.

Greed motives people to do things and take risks they would never consider doing if the possibility for a return on investment (time, money, energy) was absent..

Millions of jobs have been created by that kind of greed.

Capitalism is that greed engine that makes life on this planet tolerable for the greatest number of people.

The alternative, “liberal bleeding heart deceptions” that have yet to alleviate any problems on this planet.

Go to any third-world country where greedy Capitalist are banished and check out their fast food establishments. "Fast food" for those trapped in those types of governments is literally eating out of the city dumps.

Everywhere the “peoples party” (communist/ Socialist) has banished Capitalism from their boarders, hell on earth resides.

Socialist, Communist and left-wing liberals, have no idea how to create money for schools, hospitals, roads, housing, clean water, sanitation, and freedom.

So called greed works to create quality of life for those who embrace Capitalism.

Liberal policies and “feel good” bleeding heart deceptions create most if not all of the misery on this planet.

Hello sleeper,

I can see your point but is it not possible for capitalism driven buy a greedy never ending constituency to end up in a state of "corporate communism"? Is the wild wild west type of self governing honor and responsibility truly meaningless?

I can understand greed but totally liberating your self in "game theory" cloud create a cell that is unrelenting.

Yea democrats suck but they are greedy too aren't they?

Proof that Squirrels Protect their Supply of Nuts

Greed will be humanity's undoing. Can we put an end to the concept that wealth and power are the only ends to true happiness in the world?

You have some good points but there is always that line that gets crossed everyday.

Big business owners who hoard their wealth and pay their workers the very minimum or sometimes screwing their workers over all together.

Slave labor and child labor were also born out of greed.

Poorly made products were also born out of greed.

There has to be a limit.

Simply put, desire is the cause of every major strife in the world.

Many times, when you strive to gain material, you damage or lose something immaterial.
