Greed is selfishness. Greed doesn’t give a flying fuck about what happens to this country so long as the capitalists and corporatists can turn a profit. No private company has done anything for society where the underlying motive was not for the profit of the company first. Greed did not put a man on the moon. Greed did not give us the Internet. Capitalism and greed, in their purest forms, are sociopathic. They are a psychological disease of self-centrism and egotism. “More and more for me, me, me” and fuck the consequences.
Boldfaced emphasis added by me.
I’ll also add that greed didn’t give us science.
Scientist: “I’ve discovered this!”
Fat Capitalist Bastard: “So what? What good is that?”
Capitalist Toady Weasel: “Ooh! We can make money with that!”
Fat Capitalist Bastard: “So you stupid eggheads have a use after all!”
That’s how it goes.
If every crooked banker, every greed-driven trader, every sociopathic money-grubbing shit in this nation were strung up or shot to death, you know what would happen?
Life would go on!
And it’d be better.
