See this is why greed is so scary. Sounds rational, but it's not.
(Trying to keep this vaguely on-topic)
What's scary is that some people think there is a magical way to solve the world's problems, by waving an anti-greed wand over people.
I believe that your original statement was that there was no way to get rid of poverty without eliminating greed. You said this for no apparent reason - maybe to diversify the thread contents with incorrect absolute statements.
I would contend that there is a way to solve the world's problems by implementing a correct rule-set, and being realistic about people's greed. Many of us have come up with Communist Manifestos, but have been unable to prove that their Regime does not result in more carnage and poorness than the already relatively stable capitalist system, which is rational.
The trick is to minimize suffering, using a consistent rule-set and properly implement it, without using Harry Potter technology.
You want to insult idiots and talk about people like that.
They weren't insulted. Only people who self-identify as idiots would be offended by the assertion that idiots are idiotic.
I think people that work harder should earn more than a worker but I also think, that worker should earn enough to support a family especially when the employer is earning billions and billions of dollars. Employees of a billion dollar corp. should not have to be on welfare.
You can put this into your manifesto. What if the billion dollar corporation is not producing goods that people want to buy, or has to compete against another billion dollar corporation? Perhaps one corporation should bow out, and surrender to the other, and then steal all the shareholder wealth, to give it to the employees, so they can be rich for a month, while they look for a new job.
I will argue you are an unpatriotic idiot if you do not see the harm greed has inflicted on this country; then the rest of the world.
Pulling out the Patriot weapon? You should try Hitler, next.
I also see that by not using Harry Potter technology, the world has suffered. We could all be eating magical food, if we just used magic to solve all the problems. Why don't we? I guess it's all due to the arrogance of scientists, who say it can't be done. No end to human folly.
Please don't hesitate to send a copy of your Communist Manifesto to Obama, he will find it a great help.
