In defending the lack of oversight and regulation of Wall Street promoted by President George Bush, Sen. John McCain and the Republican Party, my father stated: “You can’t regulate greed.” Greed happens.
Greed may indeed be a part of our human nature. It is forbidden in the Ten Commandments (coveting what other people have) and made the list of seven deadly sins. However, our willingness to kill each other is also condemned as part of our “fallen” human nature. I hope the government won’t give up trying to regulate murder just because someone is bound to find a way to do it anyway.
