Greed versus Love

Gordon Gekko famously said: “Greed, for lack of a better word, is good. Greed is right. Greed works. Greed clarifies, cuts through, and captures, the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Greed, in all of its forms; greed for life, for money, for love, knowledge, has marked the upward surge of mankind and greed, you mark my words, will not only save Teldar Paper, but that other malfunctioning corporation called the U.S.A.”

I much prefer my alternative version:

Love, for lack of a better word, is good. Love is right. Love works. Love clarifies, cuts through, and captures, the essence of the evolutionary spirit. Love, in all of its forms; love for life, for money, for love, knowledge, has marked the upward surge of mankind and love, you mark my words, will not only save you, but that other malfunctioning corporation called the world.”
