The universe and everything in it is subject to entropy. Simply put entropy is disorder or chaos. One of the laws of the universe is that entropy increases through time. An orderly mountain over time erodes to chaotic grains of sand blowing as dust in the wind. But there is one force in the Universe that goes against entropy. That is life. Life creates organization out of chaos. Life creates order and structure. While erosion breaks all things down into smaller parts life works to collect from the chaos and create larger and more complex molecules, proteins, cells, organisms and structures. The why question inevitably comes into play, and has been asked since the first complex organism that could put together the thought did, but the how is quite easy. It can be answered in one simple, beautiful word. Not “The Word” that Nancy Pelosie is so fond of in creating legislation. That goes back to why, but the how is answered in the word “Greed”. Greed is the one driving mechanism that assembles all life. Greed is what creates order from the chaos. From the simplest single cell organism greed is what keeps it alive, and allows it to collect enough random nutrients to reproduce. The greedier the organism the more successful and more able it is to reproduce. All larger animals when hunting or grazing seek the maximum benefit with the least amount of effort. In that way more energy can be focused on creating order from chaos and reproducing. Without greed all life and order in the Universe would cease to exist. With humans also greed is the motivating factor. No person ever has existed without greed. Mother Theresa was a saintly woman who gave to the poor because of greed. She was motivated to help others to fulfill her emotional needs. Don’t get me wrong, what she did was beautiful, and she was a great example to the world, but she was fulfilling her needs. There is nothing wrong with greed. I am arguing in fact that greed is not only human nature, but it is in fact necessary and healthy for all living organisms. We have come to a time that politicians are labeling greed as disgusting. They want to label the most successful and wealthy among us as gluttonous and a danger to society. Their answer is to take from these greedy rich people and give it to the poor. Here is the sad fact. The politicians are using the poor. They are relying on our human nature for greed. They tell the poor that they can get the maximum benefit for no effort. The government will give you his effort. They are creating a gluttonous lower class to use for their advantage. Much like a virus that multiplies too quickly and kills the host before it can spread. If the people who do not know how to create wealth are given all of it, it will be squandered. The rich use greed to create order from the chaos. They collect from the disorder and entropy to create wealth. This order they create stimulates the creation of more order for all. Their wealth is spent and creates jobs. Life feeds on itself and thrives creating a more habitable environment. Politicians are trying to convince us that the natural order of things is not natural. Capitalism is the natural order of things. Life feeds on Capitalism. Nature is in fact a Capitalist system. Each animal has a niche. Squirrels eat the acorns. If a disease wipes out all of the squirrels do you think that the world will be overrun with acorns? No, another animal or life form will fill the niche of the absent squirrel. Just like Capitalism. If a vital company goes under, another person or company will find a way to fill that niche and create order from the chaos. Nature is Capitalism.
