GREED - IS IT A GOOD OR BAD THING

My aim with this blog is to generate an open discussion regarding the blog topics and to get different opinions and views at to why, what, when, where and how these come about.  Are they good or bad for society in general? 

I will be selecting posts I feel would be interesting and stimulating for further comments.  Please let me know if you have a topic along the lines of the blog you would like to discuss.

To start off, let's discuss the topic of this post.  Some think greed is good and some think it is bad.  Has greed moved society along, or has it held it back?  Has greed become more prevalent in today's world?  Has more people in today's society become more greedy?  If so, why do you think that is?  Has this Internet contributed to different types of people/personalities becoming greedy?

I'm looking forward to your thoughts/comments on the above!

  1. Greed has done far more damage than good. When most people hear the word greed they associate it with money, but people can also be greedy for power, blood, land, and any number of other things. I certainly think people have become more greedy in the sense that they have been taught their entire lives that accumulation of products is one of the chief goals in life. Sadly, we have a consumerist culture and this is encouraged by the system as people are fooled into believing that buying is the only way to have a successful economy and therefore a better society.
    I like the idea of a discussion based blog. Keep it up!

  7. Im left wing. People call me a 'commie' without bearing in mind that the idea of communism is that everyone is equal, regardless of background.
    Greed makes me sick - it comes in many forms other than possessions too. If you don't do anything to help others, then youre greedy. As long as youre just making someone happy or going out of your own way to help others, youre being selfless. It isnt so hard, and greed is awful

    I look forward to some debates about this.

    I for one think greed is necessary but it is holding us back. We have greed billion airs who are holding on to all of this money not paying as much taxes as you and I. They aren't pumping it back into the economy which is a big downer.

    What are your thoughts?

  12. very interesting post!
    I honestly think people in balance in their life. I think a little bit of greed is OK as long as you give back a little too. It's all about balance. :-)
