Anger and Ego are not the only one. It is greed for material and physical things, greed for getting more and more. Jealousy with others, competing with others and other such traits. No doubt if one can overcome his/her ego and can think in humble terms....he/she would succeed.

There is saying of Kabirdas - "Bura jo dekhan may chaala, bura na miliyo koi, jo dil khoja aapna, mujhesey bura na koi" Losely translated - when I went to search for an evil, I could not find any evil or a bad person, when I returned, I found that I have most of the evils and I am the most bad person.

I think it is both as ego brings anger & anger brings destruction.Anger is nothing but the manifastation of the ego which we all have.If one does not have ego,then anger will vanish & so will the problems in the world.

In my opinion, the worst enemy of the world is EGO! This only creates anger, when touched. So EGO is more prime than anger. Anger may vanish after a while, but EGO will never vanish unless punished severely! It is our prime duty to reduce our EGO and become open-minded to the entire humanity for a better world to live in. Thanks for this nice discussion.

Hi sweety, By enemy of the world i mean, all things that prevent us from being a normal, if not good, human being. So, in this perspective there are many emenies other than these two. But, here i will restrict to these two only. (you don't like digression, do you? lol..) I think, EGO is the more harmful for the simple reason - anger is easier to tame than ego. Infact, ego is a deadly disease that has an invincible power to destruct us implicitly. Its really difficult to rule out its existence as its a strong instinct. I would rather have an harmless anger than an killer ego, if at all i am to choose. Thank you for a unique discussion.

Laziness - at least it is my worst enemy. It prevents us from making friends, maintaining relationships and getting to know others better.
