1. Yes.

A lot of evils spring from greed.

But the good news is we can address the greed that lives inside of each of us.

I'm trying.

The first step is to stop buying so much crap.

2. Yup.

It's amazing how much stuff that's peddled to me that I don't need. It's all about separating you from your hard earned pay.

3. My family has always been very frugal.

I think once you live through the Great Depression the lessons learned stay with you. "You can't always get what you want, but you get what you need"...the Rolling Stones

Sweden has a word for being content and satisfied. I forget what it is, I saw Anthony Bourdain on No Reservations and they discussed this attitude. The Swedes aren't greedy, they are content with being comfortable. I admire and respect this outlook.

4. If there was ONE THING I'd want eliminated from this beautiful planet, it would be greed.

Eliminate greed, and the world would have a chance to heal and progress.
