I'm not blaming human beings for being human.

I'm also not judging people for wanting more money than they really need. Your society is saturated with capitalistic notions - so it must be hard not to crave wealth.

Maybe it's a good thing and maybe it's a bad thing.

It's not like people don't want money around here - we're just somewhat less obsessive about it. But we want other things instead. Again, it has nothing to do with superior morality. It's just different ways of being human and flawed.
