Whether greed is not impediment in the evolution of human society as it has not taken India only its clutches but world

Greed (or avarice), an uncontrolled longing for increase in the acquisition or use: of material gain (be it food, money, land, or animate/inanimate possessions); or social value, such as status, or power. One can identify Greed as undesirable throughout known human history because it creates behaviour-conflict between personal and social goals.

Keynes wrote ‘The world, not so governed from above that private and social interest always coincide. World can not manage here below that in practice they coincide. Both views continue to pose fundamental questions in today’s economic thinking.

Erich Fromm described greed as “a bottomless pit which exhausts the person in an endless effort to satisfy the need without ever reaching satisfaction.”

One individual consequence of greedy activity may be an inability to sustain any of the costs or burdens associated with that which one has accumulated, leading to a backfire or destruction, whether of self or more generally. Other outcomes may include a degradation of social position, or exclusion from community protections. So, the level of “inordinance” of greed pertains to the amount of vanity, malice or burden associated with it.

Definition of inordinance

Social networking site Twitter suspended US President Donald Trump permanently from Twitter “due to the risk of further incitement of violence”, the company says.
It comes after Mr Trump tweeted several messages on Wednesday, calling the people who stormed the US Capitol “patriots”.

US Democrats plan to introduce an article of impeachment against President Donald Trump for his role in Wednesday’s invasion of the US Capitol.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi said she would move forward with impeachment if Mr Trump did not resign immediately.

The charge of “incitement of insurrection” House Democrats sets to introduce on Monday.

They accuse Mr Trump of encouraging a riot in Congress in which five people died.

President-elect Joe Biden said impeachment was for Congress to decide, but said he had thought “for a long time President Trump was not fit to hold the job”.

Undoubtedly collection of virtues manifests itself as God so we must cultivate the virtues and we inculcate these virtues within ourselves to become a better man so that we can make a better society but it is unfortunate that our pioneering personalities are misleading us they have provided a corrupt society where there is no peace and tranquility.

Greed is the root cause of all evils so we must control the greed the desires of the greed can be controlled through the meditative exercises. If we apply our discretion then greed can easily be controlled but for this purpose knowledge is essential. We should believe in the theory of mortality if the death is inevitable then what is the need of accumulation of wealth? Why are we hankering after wealth?

Sir if there are four sons of a man, then it is not possible all may be alike. Moreover even twins are not alike in virtues. Undoubtedly we are born alike but not necessary that our evolution may be same as various factors affect our growths including physical, mental and intellectual growth. Here story of parrots is consistent which in short as one matured among saints and others among robbers consequently former was gentle and later was wicked. For this lawlessness and anarchy our money minting society itself accountable.
