The root of all evil is fear. Fear causes greed, jealousy, materialism.
The fear of not having enough causes greed and materialism.
This is a sickness just as bad as pedophiles and those who exploit others. They can never have enough.
Today the corporations such oil companies, health providers, drug companies all rake in more wealth than what they need on the back of the poor and sick. They engineer public opinion and buy off politicians to maintain or increase their wealth.
They feel they have the right to make billions more even if they have to restrict the basic right of others to survive.
