Lack of Money Is The Root of All Evil – George Bernard Shaw

Lack of Money Is The Root of All Evil - George Bernard Shaw

“Lack of money is the root of all evil.”

– George Bernard Shaw

People can be pushed to their moral limits in pursuit of money. They can be pushed beyond them, forget their true values, and perform heinous, desperate acts out of fear of lack of money.

Holding money above all else for as long as our society has has created generations of greedy individuals, and we have repeatedly rewarded greed, by praising the ability to take advantage of people as a certain strain of ingenuity, and by giving the greediest among us a higher platform, political seats, and unspoken power to further their agenda.

Money is harmless, but the fear of lack of money can create wars and decimate whole nations of people.
