  • Yes, Coca Cola for example. Not so good for peoples health, but he earn money, that is most important for him. Greed and Ignorance at the same time, but he is a very smart man many will say.
  • Capitalism is about the rich people investing their money in to things that they can earn even more. So if you have much already you will get more. Thats why we now have few people earning more than 98 % of the people in this world. They protect the…

  • Desire is what it is, just like anger, jelousy, resentment and so on, it is empty and not lasting. It can be very strong though and difficult to deal with at certain times. Like sugar craving Oposite of desire, is to be content with what you hav…

  • When you have someone trying to sabotage and take all the credits for you and youre colleague's work, you can not just let it pass and pretend everything is ok. I had done as you plan to do, tell this to your manager, and the more evidence and witne…
