“Observe due measure; moderation is best in all things.” It’s a wisdom that finds support across all ages, stages, and aspects of life."
Locke adopted a “fair usage” view of property. He argued that one can hold any property that meets the following criteria:
But, there’s a lot of ambiguity in these rules, and money rather changes things.
The idea that greed is an essential part of being human (or at least an animal) goes back at least to Plato and has a rich philosophical history from there.
"It’s when we think of little else than increasing our experiences and material possessions. This is the point at which greed has come to dominate your life." Richard Dawkins on The Selfish Gene

It’s when we think of little else than increasing our experiences and material possessions. This is the point at which greed has come to dominate your life.

Great interesting short snippets of informative articles. Highly recommended to anyone who loves information and lacks patience.
Best app ever! You heard it right. This app has helped me get back on my quest to get things done while equipping myself with knowledge everyday.
Don’t look further if you love learning new things. A refreshing concept that provides quick ideas for busy thought leaders.
This app is LOADED with RELEVANT, HELPFUL, AND EDUCATIONAL material. It is creatively intellectual, yet minimal enough to not overstimulate and create a learning block. I am exceptionally impressed with this app!
Even five minutes a day will improve your thinking. I've come across new ideas and learnt to improve existing ways to become more motivated, confident and happier.
Great for quick bits of information and interesting ideas around whatever topics you are interested in. Visually, it looks great as well.
Brilliant. It feels fresh and encouraging. So many interesting pieces of information that are just enough to absorb and apply. So happy I found this.
I have only been using it for a few days now, but I have found answers to questions I had never consciously formulated, or to problems I face everyday at work or at home. I wish I had found this earlier, highly recommended!
