In this notorious movie from 1987, Michael Douglas's character
declares to a bunch of stockholders in the US
that "greed is good" "greed is where it's at".
We do of course have to reject the notion of greed being a better core value in
our folks over having concern
for members of our community on the whole wherever we come together on the basis
Where others in our midst lack merit and yet demand or feel entitled to a share
of what is ours on some notion of being "equal' we are of course entitled to say
no, and that is what I say is the approach we must take on the planet, whether
in regards to allocation of resources, allowances of reasonable degrees of
atmospheric pollution, employment prospects and generally speaking, the fruits
of the earth, and the bounties which flow therefrom.
