Greed by BeaGifted Greed by BeaGifted
It speaks for itself *shrug*

Note to those who critiqued me: Thanks for bringing it to my attention that this kind of greed is not limited to america. I was influenced just by what I see going on where I am, but the fact is, it's a universal problem, therefor, I removed the text. Thanks guys--you know who you are :D

I hope it's ok to share this image on my Effbook page, it seems to sum up Easter Sunday rather well, in its modern form! Especially with the recent Trump news... Great pic, thanks for posting :*

It was not obvious this kind of greed exists in all humans?

Hey BeaGifted, This Drawing said more than a thousand words. amazing. My name is Dion and my artist name is "Dematiq". I make electronic music. Can i use this as my cover art for a new track? its called "Take" and i think this illustrates perfectly what i meant by it. And of course you will be mentioned all around the track :)

Very poignant image.  Greed is a disease; this disease knows no geographical boundaries.  As far as rampant consumerism, America is I'm sure at the top of a increasingly long list.  Richard

It makes me sad that we destroy this world and then send a group in Mars to see could we live there when this planet is completely destroyed. And cycle starts again. History has been repeating itself since the beginning of men and I doubt we never grow smarter. Even in small scale (a country, a village, a hunting group) you can see how they keep making the same mistakes when the old ones are passed and new ones come and don't pay heed to what has already been learned. They must makes their own mistakes I guess. 

It's just sad. I love the nature around my home but these beautiful, old forests will soon be cut down. One that was cut down was over 150 year old! I loved it. Of course they plant new forest there but it will take another 100 years to reach it's beautiful state. 

Money and power, I hate you.

Greed is indeed a universal problem, but it's quite prevalent in America. I'm sure it will have a lot of significance in the decades to come (that is if we can keep net neutrality alive until then and beyond!).
