That is one can if one really want to call everything greed. Dickens and Marx would rather one did not and could point to a thousand times one does not act this way, but that is no matter. One always can.
Self consciousness then sucks.
It becomes merely point at which a single passion can contain all the rest, and can be understood as such. it does not explain anything. But is sterile. It does not really even contain everything, as such that is as a powerful force. the action themselves were not greedy as such (or where not just about greed) and yet greed will claim them none the less, and be right to do so.
The problem then is how to find the equivalent force in the mind to such a greed. How then can one find a passion which can at a pinch contain or endeavour or annex all the others?
Or perhaps the real problem here is how can one avoid this passion not being fear? For greed is at least better than particular passion!
There is a rub indeed.
