GREED

Subject: GREED



Title: The seed of destruction


The obsessive seeds of desire's selfish and thus wanton greed forms the under belly of humanity's vises... The seeds of greed are inherited from our animal heritage's first operating mechanism of survival when survival was a response for threat balance (TB)... In the game of survival the threat balance stakes are high, on one side you have death and on the other is the struggle to live...


The notion of struggle for survival, now, has a different perceptive appearance from its original connotation... The gauntlet of life is tamer than it was in the formative years... It is still a struggle; but the terms are less apparent than in the early days when life and death meant just that, on one side life and the other death.


Today one's survival prowess is measured in dollars; where lifestyles are envied and death is foreclosure and bankruptcy... Actual death is an innocuous affair brought about by social economic disease of stress related illnesses... This modern threat balance gauntlet can only be challenged, fought, and won in the realm of thought, word and deed with swords in terms of one's desire, emotion and will that protect every purpose motive and intent of life, for it is a metaphysical affair, beyond the intelligence and weapons of the basic beast...


Humanity's greed is the result of a long history designed by negative development of its metaphysical survival skills... The seeds of greed are found in the will of human nature when it seeks to discover anything other than inclusive selfless civility ~ this is the standard for the ends, means and ways of the social survival mechanism quality necessary to overcome the survival threat, and thus balance the equation of life in terms of logical consequences. The metaphysical seeds of desire, emotion, and will that humanity sows will manifest the reality humanity reaps ~ look at human history to see the trail of tears left in its wake from wielding the swords of negative desires, emotions and will in forming the selfish purpose, motive and intent of their obsessions, selfishness and greed...


In the beginning survival instinct dictated that species of animals fight for survival because they lacked the coping strategy and skills to do otherwise in negotiating their fate; As time went on the groups of animals developed dominance over their prey and within the prey groups a suborder of dominance evolved, all in response to the threat balance for survival...


Humanoids began to separate out from the lower primate group as thought evolved within the mind of the human or body-self... As thought evolved humanoids began the design of our current present day social structure, they began to share in the responsibility for survival of the group rather than defaulting to individual survival... At this point, the ways and means for the ends of survival began to take on the shade of greed we see today in the ways and means used to derive the ends of our social economic survival...


Once the realization of group survival was accepted as the mechanism of choice and became routine and habitual so that immediate survival was no longer an issue of threat survival danger, the individuals of the groups plotted to develop inner alliances to garner envied lifestyle profits built by the usury, manipulation and deception of the masses...


Groups started to manipulate others to facilitate their profit agendas for self gratification beyond the their immediate needs by usury of the masses, the group membership, for their self advantaging ends of greed... (Note: all frauds are entrenched in this sort of profit behavior based on various scales of the pyramid scheme) The larger the group the more usury is generated until the groups within the groups begin to resent the activity and thus war against the opposition groups until there is a bifurcation that severs enough of the opposition away as a control group so it again begins the cycle anew... This mechanism of greed persist to this day as today’s political and regime oppositions for control of church and state and all the lesser pyramid schemes found in the human social structure mechanism ...


The level of usury sophistication has evolved some what; but the purpose, motive and intent is the same; it is for deception, advantage and manipulation for the benefit of a few over the masses... It is essentially, Fascism; the typical example is an authoritarian and nationalistic right-wing system of government and social organization where a few control the many by hoarding the wealth and power within the confines of the system leadership... This type of control is in direct opposition with the notion of democracy in that any thing less than pure democracy, based in self-rule derived from natural law, robs the wealth and power of the people...


All the governments and churches on the face of the earth and the lesser factions of control groups operate in the fascism fashion... This mechanism of negative usury is the inherent problem in modern society... This negative usury resulting in profit based economy is the cause of all social economic woes; it is responsible for all the stress that plagues humanity in every facet of human existence...


The cycle must be broken to improve the evolution quality of the humanoid to a higher level of performance within the confines of life's existence experience... The old animalistic seed of ways and means cannot meet the ends of human survival because it is a self destructive seed...

The old seeds of animalistic ways have brought humanity to the doorway of self-destruction once again, as it has in the past, with the lost civilizations... We now stand again at the gateway of chance, choice and change; destiny is now in sight, it is time to change the seeds we sow to grow a new path of inclusive selfless civility away from the doorway of destruction...

You see if inclusive selfless civility are the primary seeds of thought emotion, desire and will; then all answers, problems and solutions are beneficial to the whole of humanity and thus safeguard from the error of greed impregnating reason, choice and decision of leadership... In this true sword of selfless behavior the means and ways of the end derived is a perfection of the process, system and procedure for development, growth and progress...

See my essay: The Way Forward for a description on how the sword of self-rule, the notion of democracy, might facilitate the ways and means of the end for minimizing greed and maximizing inclusive behavior of one's selfless attitude and civil temperament...

someonewhoknows, Hello again, its a pleasure to respond to your perceptive, intuitive insight.

Yes indeed nowhere...

It is such a deceptive desire to want more than one needs when all the time we sense it is counter intuitive; but we indulge and the obsession grows and so does its negative effect until the bough brakes and down comes baby cradle and all - All in the illusion of a selfish happiness...

bgamall, thanks for the visit... If the system was correct it would be viable and not collapse periodically... The problem is a few are extracting the wealth from the system at its expense... The way to stop it is to change the system to one that is beyond corruption; and not rely on the judgment of those who cannibalized it...

Again I appreciate your interest, thanks...

greed is no fun. It's a disease and one must be cured from it before it can destroy lives. Thank you for sharing. More power.

Ioua, I have been advocating that those who have been victims of this usury just walk away from credit cards, ponzi loans and the like. Certainly there can be credit and legal ramifications for doing so, but bold people who can try to survive without a perfect credit score should consider default. After all, everyone but the average Joe has been bailed out by Bush and Obama.

Greed is the worst sin, and almost all the evil of the world derives from it. And as you rightly said it is everywhere. A very interesting hub. Rated and stumbled.

Paradise7, Oh yes, the necessary fix is a lifestyle change that must be implemented like exercise and other holistic cures... The problem is a negative exclusive psychology that humans shares a common heritage in... I am just drawing attention to it; like telling a friend they have a problem they are not addressing properly...

Very interesting hub. I agree with you. I'd like to see more action and less talk on this front, from us all, myself included.

AlexK2009, thanks for the visit and the comment; and yes pretty much, humanity is having a hard start at breaking away from its ancestral traits...

Humanity is stuck in the rationalization of opinion as justification without substantive law as logic for its actions; it still lacks this strategy for the justification of its behavior in a logical fashion, this is what I bring to the table for debate...

Interesting. I would have user Totalitanairainism rather than Fascism as covering left wing , right wing and religious dictatorships.

Much of what you observed can be explained by noting that socially and psychologically we have not progressed beyond the common ancestor we share with chimpanzees and gorillas.

msorensson; Good morning and thanks for the visit...

We are a reflection of our thought and as we think we behave; so when the All of humanity is of the singular thought dimension of inclusive selfless civility it will be on its way to perfecting it purpose, motive and intent...

Have a great day...

There can be no mass consciousness for any movement unless we work on ourselves first. It is not so much as overcoming our thought patterns and behaviours, more relating to it to see that they have no hold over us.
