There isn't any truth to corporate greed.

That gives off a great “I know you are but what am I” vibe. Come on sir. Surely you can be more original than a kindergarten comeback. 

So, no answer, then?

Everybody, and I mean everybody, has a certain amount of greed to them. To say otherwise is dishonest by the person saying it.

Wall Street, 1987:

Quote

The point is, ladies and gentlemen, that greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right, greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of its forms: greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge, has marked the upward surge of mankind. And greed, you mark my words, will not only save Teldar Paper, but that other malfunctioning corporation called the USA. Thank you very much.

-- Gordon Gekko.

Why would I answer a basic kindergarten reply?

Do you think Democrats care about you? You think Nancy Pelosi, who's worth over $100 million, cares about you?

I don't care about them either or how they became rich.  Then again I'm not one to covet after another man's wealth or possessions.  I understand they businesses have to make a profit, but a lot of that is spread around to shareholders as well.  In most cases the ultra wealthy have many different businesses that bring in the money to make them billionaires.

She doesn't even care about her own district.

I agree that everyone has a certain amount of greed in them...because humans are deeply flawed creatures...but I don't think I would say that greed is good. It is probably the greatest source of idolatry in our society.

It is better to be poor than rich.  We are not taught to store our treasures on earth or even worry about tomorrow.  And you idolize mammon, by desiring their money to be used for the better good.  That is a choice they should make according to their conscious and before God.

Greed isn't just about money or power, though.
