Inner moral poverty...

 Most recently we heard, and read the convictions of a prominent South Asians (Indians) for insider tradings. On December 5, 2011, Raj Rajaratman was at the Federal Medical Center Devens, approximately forty miles West of Boston. He surrendered himself for the crime he committed - inside trading. March, 2013 his younger brother was indicted for suspicious trading at Sedna.
The Galleon Group - hedge fund managers is just one of the many who betrayed not only investors but the MORAL code of a democratic and enterprising nation like USA.
We heard the story of Bernie Madoff, the Ponzi scheme of the 20's still being employed by some to exploit others...
We often wonder if others will learn from this moral lapses, and do the right thing.

On earth you can only practice one,
Practice your morals or succumbed to your greed.
Your choice will have a lasting impact on your life, family, community and nation.
Easier said than done, but it is realistic and possible to overcome our inner material desires for vanities...
Being vain and bitter has roots to our past, and perhaps the "material poverty" we experienced, and never left us despite we have everything.
