20. Do you really believe "everything is based on greed/money"?
I am trying to imagine how humanity could have possibility survived if "everything is based on greed/money".

I can't.

I believe that a subsistence greater than greed drives "humanity". Otherwise, nuclear destruction would have already whiddled life as we know it.
