Greed gets a bad rap. I do not believe greed deserves the condemnation that it regularly receives at the hands of its critics. And I am not even referring to the violence* introduced by some greedy people. I am only speaking of greed by itself. Those who speak against (non-violent) greed often speak of environmental exploitation, income inequality, spiritual decay, or the destruction of society. But let me help you understand greed and the natural actions taken by greedy people, for then you will see that you have nothing to fear from this alleged bogeyman.
