Rationality and greed

Parenting the greed

We the humans take great pride in declaring that we are rational beings, since the time of Aristotle. But not only he missed the truth but he left a legacy of understanding which has led generation after generation to be under this mistaken belief. The truth is that we can always act first on our whim and rationalize our conduct later.
As parents it is our duty to be role models for our children  but we fail to lead the way to show them how to acquire new skills because we have ourselves lost the capacity to learn. All we know is how to operate in a same pattern every day and let money generate from this pattern. We are so blinded by this attraction for money that it seems to be the only  purpose of existence. This greed becomes the anchor of psychological security.
In practice however it is the smartness to survive your changing friends and foes, in a greedy world really helps to keep you out of trouble.
