@Mame,
I wish it would be so but I have more grim look on humanity. Just look at our history. All the wars, politics, ideologies, relogions are effected by lust for money, power or sex.

@dadpad,
That's not fair Dad, these aint what I believe in, they're what I observe.

Fear, Insecurity, Family.

@Starchild,
survive - whatever as begger or hardworking person
learn - to improve my life and the life of people dependent on me
hope - whatever it is by religion or a political party.

I think a major motivating factor for some people is that they want their children and grandchildren to have a better life. Money might be a part of this, but I think John Adams expressed it best:

Quote:
I must study politics and war, that our sons may have liberty to study
mathematics and philosophy. Our sons ought to study mathematics and
philosophy, geography, natural history and naval architecture,
navigation, commerce and agriculture in order to give their children
a right to study painting, poetry, music, architecture, statuary,
tapestry and porcelain."


Of course, plain, old fashioned greed and hubris can fuel many a soul.

For men: Sex - Money - Sex.

For women: Love - Security - Money.

I was thinking it more and I will change it little bit because usually money comes from Power. This is actually the basic of the human mind if you would make a "Pyramid of needs".

1. Survival 2. Sex 3. Power
