i think it is the survival of the fittest.if you are not good enough you will be thrown to the dumps.that's why people say you got to do whatever it takes. there is too much competition now a days.i know being greedy is a bad thing but that's what it is.its like a trend now.you really cant trust anybody but yourself. tell your your future wife that i said hi.and good luck with her research.

I will convey your regards my friend. Yes, it's indeed true that it's like a trend now - greed is enchaining itself from generation to generation. Nice response. Keep it up

I think because life right now is really hard. It's a dog-eat-dog world out there and people are just doing what their instinct is telling them. They are just trying to survive. Sometimes though, these greedy people do not realize that they are already hurting others in order to survive. And well, some people, don't care and are just plain greedy.

It is true that people are becoming greedier and greedier and there is a reason for it. Prices are going up like anything. People do not know how to cope with the inflation. People need so many things to but. The luxuries of the past has become necessities of today.
