So what is it?
What must we overcome to achieve peace?
Greed is the selfish desire for the pursuit of money, wealth, power, food, or other possessions, especially when this denies the same goods to others. It is generally considered a vice, and is one of the seven deadly sins in Catholicism.
Greed denotes desire to acquire wealth for possessions beyond the needs of the individual, especially when this accumulation of possession denies others legitimate needs or access to those or other resources. For example, amassing a large collection of seashells would not be considered greed, unless in doing so, the needs of others were jeopardized. Essential to the concept of greed is the awareness that the needs of others are denied, thus rivalrous goods exemplify greed while non-rivalrous goods may not. Greed also often involves using wealth to gain power over others, sometimes by denying others wealth or power.

Some desire to increase one's wealth is nearly universal and acceptable in any culture, but this simple want is not considered greed. Greed is the extreme form of this desire, especially where one desires things simply for the sake of owning them (such as the desire to have great amounts of money not to purchase objects, but possession or the money is an end in itself). Greed typically entails acquiring material possessions at the expense of other person's welfare (for example, a father buying himself a new car rather than fix the roof of his family's home) or otherwise reflect priorities.

A well known example of greed is the pirate Hendrick Lucifer, who fought for hours to acquire Cuban gold, becoming mortally wounded in the process. He died of his wounds just hours after having transfered the booty to his ship.
Can we change the world?

Tell Congress we need an exit strategy from Afghanistan =Please take ACTION=

Posted on June 23, 2009 at 10:47pm 0 Comments

Please tell Congress how you feel!

Last week in Afghanistan, there were 400 insurgent attacks in one week, the highest level since 2001. [1] General Petraeus expects those attacks to increase, and they're getting ready to send in 21,000 more troops. There is no evidence that increasing the military presence will decrease violence, yet the Obama administration currently doesn't have a plan for how and when this war is going to end. We need to raise our voices now. Join our national… Continue

Dear Friends,

Many of you reading this message worked diligently to support President Obama and his call for change. I'm sure you feel, as I do, an almost palpable air of excitement and pride right now in having a man of Obama's intelligence and integrity in the White House. What I also find remarkable is Obama's conviction that it is imperative for those who disagree with him to speak out, make their voices heard, and discuss ideas without attacking motivation or… Continue

"Why Should the U.S. Government's Right to Secrecy Trump the Right of People Not to be Tortured?

Today, five men who were flown in CIA "extraordinary rendition" and subsequently tortured by third countries are asking the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals to reinstate the case of Mohamed et al v Jeppesen Dataplan Inc. In 2008, the Bush administration convinced U.S. District Judge James Ware to throw out the case, on the basis that making the information in the lawsuit public would… Continue

Hi Moss, with your eyes wide open;

Good to know you.

Hi dear Moss,

Good that we keep in touch through this site. I gave up fathers rights activism. Too much dishonesty, disloyalty, disorientation and corruption around that movement. (It's a pitty that our funny convo got deleted with my page.)

If I ever visit the US, I'll make sure we meet there.

Much Peace, Love, Metta and Happiness to you and yours
