    May 7 2013: In a word; Greed. We can cite climate, war, famine, disparity, or thousands of other pressing issues, but these will only be symptoms of the one true illness that currently afflicts humanity and is driving it towards it's end. It is only when we dispose of Greed that we will be able to address and dispose of the whole spectrum of human ills.
    • May 7 2013: Absolutely, it is also the cause of many if not all crimes committed.
      And all this craziness our governments are engaging in without the people's knowledge.
