Honest greed is good, corrupt greed is very bad indeed!

I really don't believe there is "honest" greed.

I used to think money / possesions were, but I also feel greed is the biggest problem. Greed has no borders, no class distinctions, no racial or gender prejudices and is throughout the world.

C'mon!

Greed is bad, by definition:
"excessive desire to acquire or possess more (especially more material wealth) than one needs or deserves"

A person who is honest will probably be working against his/her own desire to "acquire or possess more."

Car dealers mix truth and lies and use a lot of other manipulative techniques to control their "mark" and so to maximize income but I wouldn't call such a person honest.

I hope you don't mind my borrowing the op. I found it while readiing the old post. I find it very interesting. I think I have had this in my mind for years, just never had a definite form to it.

Btw, I hope others who have not seen this find it as interesting as I do, especially the complacency part.
