Greed is stopping human evolut by devianteles Greed is stopping human evolut by devianteles
On this drawing I tried to make a joke with a serious stuff.
Is the humanity really evolving? Or are we just becoming zombies blinded by money?
I used several public domain images to create it, and I suppose to post links to all the images I used here soon.

Greed has enabled human evolution. We're where we are today as a species because we were greedy, territorial, and violent. That's how evolution works. The species vicious enough to survive in the state of the nature goes on to dominate.

That is a nice explanation, except that we as humans are not supposed to either be greedy, territorial or violent anymore. Not with our ability to develop a complex, civilized society where we do not have to crush someone's skull with a bludgeon to solve any problem.

True. The problem is that complex human civilization has existed for only a very small fraction of humanity's history. We were little better then animals for the vast majority of our history, where greed, violence, and territorial mindsets ensured our survival. It's going to take more then good wishes to de-program our entire species from a mindset that was beneficial to us for so long. Truth be told we'll probably have to wait a few thousand years, at least, before the less desirable aspects that aided us in evolution are bred away entirely. Evolution is a slow, slow process.

Money is just a piece of cheap paper. But why we want it, because of the power of evils. Wake up comrade and see whats happening to you causing you sick even died. "obsession of money may end up you to hell."

This is interesting. Money has a strange psychological effect on people. When one obtains a significant amount of wealth (as in way more than one needs), one starts to develop a desire to keep accumulating more and more wealth, despite the fact that it's not needed. In a certain sense, wealthy individuals become essentially "money zombies."
