Everything is good, Who told you that greed is evil Even Hindu has a goddess for MONEY. But it is bad when you want to acquire it with wrong means. I can think of right now only one word which has different word, if it is acquired by wrong means but everyone loves it. Rape is worst evil. But if we link it with sex then everyone likes it.

that's the point. it is generally considered to be bad, because others believe my greed will affect some one. i am trying to see some feeling, thing, entity, belief, in us, which is considered bad by others. i want to know why such a good feeling, is considered bad by the "others" community! for example Greed means "excessive or reprehensible acquisitiveness", which is not a direct insult to others and why on earth should some feel bad about my Own good old greed. One more is lust, "personal inclination" , which is not hurting anybody . Whereas "raping" is an act which is acted upon on others. There is no point of saying, "Why do others get bothered on a raping act". [ April 04, 2003: Message edited by: aadhi agathi ]

drugs, more specifically ecstacy must be called that cos it makes people ecstatic, and thats a good feeling, yet drugs are bad

sorry before i get flamed by people who enjoy recreational drugs and go out of their way to ensure it is not bad for them, what i meant by "drugs are bad" is generally drugs are bad, and by drugs i also mean over the counter stuff
