What can happen when greed takes over?
We only have to take a look around the world, nearby and afar, to see what happens when a person or group of people become greedy.
people want more as they obtain more
the desire for more can take over personal values
greed damages relationship priorities, people competing against each other for 'more' than another
people lose sight of who they are
people are exploited, for profits
people are reluctant to help others financially because of fear of 'losing' money
money becomes an indicator of power
greed has led to the destruction of the planet, land and oceans, for resources.
people engage in certain behaviours to meet short term goals, because of the rewards, whether it's ethical or not.
