Is greed and selfishness the root of all evil in humanity?Posted by: Najs
Every evil act in modern times, in history, and even in our personal lives, the cause of evil seem to always lead to the root cause of selfishness and/or greed. If you do not believe so, then what is the root cause?
Yes. The root of all evil in humanity is selfishness and/or greed.
No. Selfishness and/or greed is not the root of all evil in humanity.
A little, but it goes a little further. It's far more about desire than it is about selfishness/greed. The roots of greed come from desire.
We need to be selfish to survive. This means stealing, murdering, and lying for one's own good.
Religion is the source of more evil. If you're smart you know being selfish won't make your life better. Religion causes good people to do evil things.
Humanity is the evil on humanity not any thing else take a look in the mirror and you'll find the source of all evil.
As evil is someones subjective opinion as to if something or someones actions or intentions are evil there is no evil or good. Hence there cannot be a root.
I"m selfish and I say it's not; therefore, it's as true as it will ever be.
Overpopulation is the root of all "evil." Save the planet, kill yourself.
