Seven Deadly Sins represent the sins to which human beings are most susceptible because of our human nature

The Seven Deadly Sins represent the sins to which we are most susceptible because of our human nature.

Over the last decade, it has become increasingly evident that the social and moral fabric that binds society and the world is falling apart.

Many of the Globalist Report’s readers and contributors are based in North America, Europe, Australia and the Middle-east, so it would be interesting to know which of the Seven Deadly Sins everyone believes to be the most rampant in society.

So which Seven Deadly Sin do you believe is most prevalent in society?

I (and the other readers) would really like to know which Seven Deadly Sin you selected and why you selected it?

To share which Seven Deadly Sin you selected and why you selected it, please use the comments form below. PS: I (Andrew Puhanic) promise to review your comment ASAP (I’m based in Melbourne Australia, so their may be a slight delay).

    Greed. It starts here with a culture that beats it into your head that he with the most toys when he dies has succeeded do they steal it from hungry,homeless people..
    Greed tends to go Gluttony> conspicious consumption;like, how many houses can you live in at once? How much food can you realistically eat? Along with greed comes Lust because these people have so much money and power they can sexually exploit anything they like> and more exotic beautiful women or men know this and use it to their advantage because they want the money involved.
    Greed also creates envy on the part of the have-nots who would like to have some of the excess that is denied them and this leads to wrath which expresses itself in crime,terrorism, Revolutions.
    Greed & sloth also creates welfare bums & gambling and a “something for nothing” mentality.
    That about covers it. It all starts with greed> some of us never outgrow this infantile egotistical urge (like yuppies) which causes so much HELL

    Greed #1. Everyone wants more than they need. It drives the psychopaths who want to control ‘us’. The greed of the people makes us susceptible to being controlled.

    That brings us to lust, not sexual, but lust for power. It has been suggested that the warmongers have small dicks so their lust is directed elsewhere!

    The others may play a part in the lives of the masses, but that doesn’t have to have much effect on the danger to civilization. Perhaps ‘sloth’ in the form of ‘apathy’.

    Greed! The people who are destroying civilisation are doing it in the name of “More” when they already have more than they could ever spend…

    Andrew, it is a rather deep insight that you reduce the woes of the day to the 7 classic building blocks of human misery. I applaud your insight as so many others fail to see the 800 pound gorilla in the room. Traditionally and historically the classic number one is of course Pride as it is the fundamental foundation of all the others. But I suggest above the blinding culprit today, more than perhaps at any other time in the West, is Greed. A greed that leads to the callous indifference toward others that is seen in the corporatism that is eating away at so many natural, human and civil rights and privileges of the “un-elite” the world over. The greed leads to greater and greater enormities that crush those in the way of whatever is determined the game plan de jour. Control of others, power and pelf, leads to the sloth of mind and soul that masks itself under various “altruistic” endeavors but only further cements injustice, selfishness unbridled and cruelty that is not just physical but is across the spectrum of cultural values, morals, ethics and indeed the reality of civilization. Just pick up the newspaper or news site on the net to find the “heart-break” of the day. Artificial sufferings of every kind, brutality of police, governments and military—all that defy reason. It is becoming the return of the “law of the jungle” and every man for himself. With the virus of political correctness, compromise and accommodation even the vast majority of Religious leaders are silent or merely whimpering too little too late. Will the real Lord Chamberlain, please sign in! So that is my pick, Andrew, and very nano-briefly why. Please keep up the good work and bring fresh air and vision to those just hanging on. God bless and keep you. Thanks. Courage. There is a sliver lining our there somewhere…..St. Paul saw it to some great degree in his own day and left us with this hope: Where sin abounds, grace abounds even more……..Ciao. (A kindred Soul)

      Hi Michael… Thank you for your contribution. You raise some valid points and I’m sure everyone will benefit from your contribution.

    I’ll start things off…I voted for Greed. I did so because I believe many never know when enough is enough.
