The only reason this planet (and better--our country) is in as relatively good shape that we find ourselves is because of HUMANS like us who are blessed with a Judeo-Christian mindset and the work ethic that naturally ensues. Humanity has a God-given mandate to try to overturn His curse brought about by ourselves, but in a moral, ethical way. Most humans, however, rely on jealousy, strife and envy to get ahead. That's why we have the Mafia, and the gubmint to deal with. Good post, Scrappy.
