One Small Step for Greedom

America here is your wake up call. Your call to action if you will. This page is dedicated to the greed not only expressed in this great country of mine but also around the world. Greed corrupts all as Machiavelli once said so here we go. Oh I almost forgot here is a brief definition of this word, so when you see me use it regularly in my posts you will know what it means.

In the Urban Dictionary the word greedom means the pseudo freedom that is propagated by selfish interest groups; a state created when people motivated by greed hide this fact by claiming that they act in the name of freedom. Selling Freedom promises just to profit and take advantage of a situation.

We must learn from the past in order to have hope for the future. I am going to update and include symbols of this so everyone can better understand the true evil in this world and what lies beneath the surface.

Anyway, no drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If we’re looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn’t test people for drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed and love of power.
P. J. O’Rourke

It has always seemed strange to me… the things we admire in men, kindness and generosity, openness, honesty, understanding and feeling, are the concomitants of failure in our system. And those traits we detest, sharpness, greed, acquisitiveness, meanness, egotism and self-interest, are the traits of success. And while men admire the quality of the first they love the produce of the second.
John Steinbeck

Describes the fiscal cliff we just encounter perfectly:
In our daily life, we encounter people who are angry, deceitful, intent only on satisfying their own needs. There is so much anger, distrust, greed, and pettiness that we are losing our capacity to work well together.
Margaret J. Wheatley

Greed is a bottomless pit which exhausts the person in an endless effort to satisfy the need without ever reaching satisfaction.
Erich Fromm

Leadership is a privilege to better the lives of others. It is not an opportunity to satisfy personal greed.
Mwai Kibaki

Obama you speak beautifully but as Theodore Roosevelt put you need to “Speak softly and carry a big stick”:
We didn’t become the most prosperous country in the world just by rewarding greed and recklessness. We didn’t come this far by letting the special interests run wild. We didn’t do it just by gambling and chasing paper profits on Wall Street. We built this country by making things, by producing goods we could sell.
Barack Obama
America needs young people to be inspired to choose sacrifice over greed.
Jesse Jackson

There are a lot of people who are doing wonderful things, quietly, with no motive of greed, or hostility toward other people, or delusions of superiority.
Charles Kuralt

Obviously you have to make a profit to put out a newspaper. I’m not an idiot. But when the margins are in excess of 25 per cent you’re talking about greed.
Carl Hiaasen
We are in danger of destroying ourselves by our greed and stupidity. We cannot remain looking inwards at ourselves on a small and increasingly polluted and overcrowded planet.
Stephen Hawking

Of mankind we may say in general they are fickle, hypocritical, and greedy of gain.
Niccolo Machiavelli
To talk about balance, it’s easier to talk about what’s out of balance. And I think anytime that you have any disease, and disease meaning lack of ease, lack of flow… dis-ease. So any time there’s disease, you’re out of balance, whether it’s jealousy, anger, greed, anxiety, fear.
Ricky Williams

Greed is the inventor of injustice as well as the current enforcer.
Julian Casablancas

At a time when unbridled greed, malignant aggression, and existence of weapons of mass destruction threatens the survival of humanity, we should seriously consider any avenue that offers some hope.
Stanislav Grof

We’ve been raised to compete, to want more! More! More! It’s a way of life. It’s about greed.
Sandy Duncan
