The Sickness of Power And Greed

File Photo

Those who only live for power and greed are never happy, for they never get enough. The more they have, the more they want. They have very little respect for others. They make good use of the weak. For some reason they just follow like sheep. If you ask the weak why they just follow, they can’t give you an answer. Their lives have become rather cheap.

If mankind were to stand up for their rights, the power and greed mongers would disappear. Mankind knows right from wrong, good from bad. There are some power brokers who know good from bad, so some of them go for the good of mankind. Then there are the others. They only use the power for evil. The same thing goes for greed. These people just want to suck up the world and everyone around them. In most cases, power and greed go hand in hand. They use their power for all the wrong reasons. The greed brings them nothing but unhappy need in the long run. Both don’t know the meaning of humility.

What is the need for a home with 20 rooms and 20 bathrooms, a pool, and a tennis court if others are happy to find a park bench to sleep on? I realize that all things cannot or should not be equal, but there must be some balance to life. Maybe someday man will make up and be a little kinder to each other. For the most part, we have a wonderful world with a few rotten apples.

This is one man’s opinion.
