Greed is the liberal's Boogeyman while sloth is the conservative's. Aren't they both bad in excess?kalm wrote:89Hen wrote:No, it just shows how ignorant and out of touch you are. Type away and just keep proving me right.

Everyone is entitled to their own dreams.
The "American Dream" is a bit of a cultural/economic construct related to history. The Roosevelts felt it included a fair wage for a fair day's work that would enable a retirement with dignity. From the 50's-70's it included the ability to buy the humble house with a white picket fence and be able to put your kids through school...often times on a single salary.
Most importantly, each generation was looking forward better lifestyle than their parents.
That's been diminished for good or bad reasons.
But it's a worthy discussion and fair criticism that Trip is laying down here.
And why does Trip criticize financial greed but give greed for power a pass?
By our nature some humans are more ambitious than others. Curbing financial ambition will just channel it in other directions like government positions of authority.
