Addiction and Greed is the Same Thing

This quote brought to mind these words I wrote while Gorge Bush was in power. I wished he had kept on drinking and never had changed his addictions. It probably would have prevented the war with Iraq.


The President of the United States (George Bush) in an interview admitted to have had a drinking problem, and one day he just stopped drinking - that he let Jesus Christ inside him and became a Christian.  Addicts don’t just stop!  They change addictions!  His new addictions are religion, power and money.  Just because his new addictions are more accepted by our society it does not make it any better.  Addiction and greed is the same thing.  Greed or addiction means that whatever the object of our affection is, we can never get enough of it.  Addicts live in constant fear of losing the object of their affection and go to any lengths to protect it.  They will lie, cheat, steal, go to war without thinking twice, and exploit others even their own children.  No wonder so many young people are so angry; for when we feel used and exploited we get angry.  Only addicts will elect and support an addict to be our leader.  This means there are a lot of addictive or greedy people in our society!!!

Facebook post about greed

Monica: Dancing on the titanic?
Nasa-funded study: industrial civilisation headed for 'irreversible collapse'?    
                  
Sylvie Imelda Shene: Those in power don't care about future generations. They just care about keeping their power and collecting more money. That's why the sociopaths at my last job tried to destroy me because my book exposes their lies, facades and evil nature. I have very little hope for humanity. "While some members of society might raise the alarm that the system is moving towards an impending collapse and therefore advocate structural changes to society in order to avoid it, Elites and their supporters, who opposed making these changes, could point to the long sustainable trajectory 'so far' in support of doing nothing."

Monica Chelagat: Social injustice by sociopaths leaders, was and will be the cause of collapse. The greed the live in is no different from a heroin addict.

Hamed Oubeid: Greed! The bloody greed and short term gains ...

Sylvie Imelda Shene: The sociopaths of the world and their enablers that choose to believe their lies and look the other way and support them will be the cause of the collapse. They are worse than heroin addicts because they destroy everything and heroin addict destroy just themselves.
Addiction and greed is the same thing. Greed or addiction means that whatever the object of our affection is, we can never get enough of it. Addicts live in constant fear of losing the object of their affection and go to any lengths to protect it. They will lie, cheat, steal, go to war without thinking twice, and exploit others even their own children. No wonder so many young people are so angry; for when we feel used and exploited we get angry.

Monica Chelagat: I have seen greedy people in my workplace, greedy for career and money at any cost. They are the worst species! They will trumple on anyone without thinking twice! They are damaged beyond repair.

Sylvie Imelda Shene: Yes, they are the worst species, because they don't care about anyone, but keep feeding their addictions or pacifier that protects them from having to face and feel their own painful truths and keeps their repressed feelings at bay. They will destroy anyone that gets in the way of their pacifiers.

Hamed Oubeid: I wish I knew this 30 or 40 years ago. When I studied psycho-sociolgy a bit, this was no known. But I recall now meeting pervert narcissists in my long career. The way I had is to confront them and show no fear. Sometimes, I just avoid them by keeping them at bay. This behavior is also common among African supervisors and I always put it under the culture of poverty, that is, someone coming from a relatively poor background, climb the ladder in an institution and wants to be the chief among people much more clever than him. We were calling him the Mandingo Prince in his back and he never realized that no one was taking him seriously. Well he lost a lucrative career because his behavior caught up with him.
