Greed is the problem, but there is no way to do away with greed.

Exactly. Its human nature.

Believe me, society has been in this boat many times before, and they will be again many time hereafter.

Probably not in our lifetimes, and with some luck not in the lifetimes of our kids either. But after that? you bet!

No legislation, no rules, no laws, no education and no luck can stop it. Its going to happen again.
