The root of all evil

Some say that money is the root of all evil; others that it's poverty. Some point to social injustice; others to inequality. Some to religion; others to politics or to capital.

I say that if you took away all of the money, burned the capital, eliminated poverty, banned religion, and stoned politics that this thing would be true; somewhere a man will cave-in his brother's head, a woman will smother her offspring in her crib, and one tribe will cook another in communal fire.

Welcome to the world; stop trying to cure it, and prepare to live in it; dig for the roots inside of yourself, and always, always wear clean underwear.
