If you feel like that, why don't you try and do something that will help? Be the different person among the others and make a change. Because it is sad how we take with little consideration to the consequences.

I think of that a lot, but it haunts me to realize that we all take things.

Thoughts like this torment me every day.
Throwing away trash has become nauseating just because I know it won't magically go away. And I recycle what I can, whilst doubting it will help much.
I use so much water to take a 12 minute shower.
I try not to eat much of the meat my mother prepares. I feel like I'm killing more animals every time I eat meat.
And everyone hates it when I talk about this uncomfortable feeling that humans are sucking up this beautiful planet through a straw and asking for seconds.
We're the most destructive species on the planet, made up of mostly kind-hearted individuals who just take what they're given without questioning it. But they are afraid to look at the damage.

I am actually pretty sure that the human race has had this trait since about forever. Just because nowadays there are more goods we yearn for, or a greater variety of goods, that doesn't mean that humans have become corrupt in the modern era. It is in a person's nature to want more, because this way a person is able to cover more of their needs, starting from necessary, biological ones, and moving up to the need to have schooling, entertainement etc. Why would anyone want to limit themselves and the needs they can cover if the means are there for the taking? Why limit your own potential to have, in your own estimation, a better life?

I think the whole issue here is the prevalent belief that, by wanting more and more goods, you're preventing someone else from having them, as such you are exploiting others or you're effectively limiting their own potential, which makes you selfish/horrible/shallow etc. But I think we all have reasons to believe that this idea is, at least partly, false. Does working hard and using the money you earn to buy many goods considered a greedy behavior? You would just be doing what you think is the best for your life, and no one would be hurt in the process. Being greedy doesn't necessarily mean that you are exploiting someone's weakness, and as long as no one is hurt, I honestly cannot see why wanting the best for yourself has to be considered a negative to one's personality.

And as for the cases when someone does get hurt, well, that's pretty much what crime is all about. Even the mentally-ill who commit crimes do so to satisfy a need they have, which of course does not make much sense to sane people or which is simply illogical. However, we are not allowed to satisfy any need we may ever have regardless if anyone is hurt or not, seeing as such behavior would lead to conflict and it would then be impossible for people to live together. Which is why crime, that is trying to cover a need by or while hurting someone, is punished by the State.

I agree. In fact, during our lunch period at my school last week, an adult came into the room an announced that anyone who recycled and composted correctly would get a piece of candy. Over 3/4 of the kids got up immediately to throw stuff away.

It sickens me, but then when you think about it it applies to everything. Everyone has greed.
