That which turns a hero into a zero—it builds its shaky foundation on “never enough.”
Greed temps those who risk long-term integrity for short-term gain—the manta is to grab as much as possible in the shortest time, with little or zero consideration to the lives of others.

Nickname for anyone who believes profits are more important than people.

(Not as nasty as the nickname the greeds have for non-greeds, which is "idiots." But then again, non-greeds aren't as smart (or vicious). {half-sarcasm intended}
The greeds have organized individually, and via both corporations, and government to: a) limit the power, health, and well-being of the general public via new laws and regulations; b) remove established standards of living, and encourage the workplace to disregard the concerns, safety, and respect of the workers; c) amass excess wealth to one or two percent of the people, to the detriment of the majority; d) unduly influence a significant number of remaining middle-class persons via false, excessively biased, and misleading news reporting (as well as over-riding previous FCC policy that endorsed truth in journalism with 2004 FL appellate court ruling stating that there is no rule/law that says journalism has to be truthful); e) disenfranchise, encourage, and institute new policies and laws limiting, and eliminating, voter rights, aka voter suppression; f) utilize and increase pre-existing bias and intolerance to further divide the majority against itself; and f) continue these and other previous disingenuous reorganization efforts.

n. 1. The defining characteristic of human nature. 2. The desire to own or control more resources than others.
Greed is not merely "I want more". Greed is "I want more than everybody else". Thus the majority of people are forcibly kept poor because if everyone had a million dollars, a loaf of bread would cost a hundred grand.
