The last sentence. Totally true. Greed has no off switch. But still. I do not think it is folly to believe in the inherent goodness in humans.
Which ones? That has always been the question.
After surviving Auschwitz, Viktor Frankl said we do all humans and each other a disservice when we shape prejudice around things like color, gender, religion and such.
We should have prejudice. And the line is simple. Those with the capacity for malice and those without. Seems to me greed and malice are one and the same.
