    as long as there's perceived scarcity in any dimension, there's gonna be jealousy, envy, insecurity, and war

    Money is taken for granted. When you don't have a penny, you are a non-person. It's absolutely necessary. I hate this fact. You can't even use public transport without it, or eat, or have a roof over your head.
    Currently submerged under an avalanche of books and paper work. I may come back up for air from time to time.

    people who wage war are usually quite confident and powerful. wars are caused by these people manipulating other people's jealousy, envy and insecurity, as well as some of their more admirable qualities like loyalty, courage, desire to protect country and kin and religious faith. as far as the other points you're spot on though.

    part of life. it gets a bad rap because people channel their anxieties and need for control into it.

    But there are other things which are equally or more important. It's a means to an end, not an end in and of itself.
