we are all greedy (your fooling yourself if you think you arnt) there will always be greed and every society and system runs on greed. all you do with govt is shift greed from the individual to a collective (which is the cause of crony capitalism govt) that has power and influence over all of us that can negatively effect all of us. govt is usually the cause of civilizations downfall.

Your goin to tack "knowledge" into greed?

An obsessive need for knowledge would entail greed of something else....fame, money, etc. etc.

To claim greed is necessary for progress, is stupid. What does the open source developer gain from developing open source software? The very fact you have people developing this stuff without compensation, proves that greed is an unnecessary evil. That people can do what they enjoy without someone using them for their own greedy impulses.

You have literally taken an everyday human occurance and claimed a moral label on it...when, everything it entails defies all socialital defined moral structures. You have literally claimed the religion of capitalism, and wage slavery is good.

I think there's a lot of good that can come from greed, I also think there's a lot of bad that can come from greed.
