Greed or giving: which has the greater impact on society?

I think giving has the bigger impact, because giving feeds the soul of both the giver and receiver. I also think the philosophers like Hypatia and Socrates might have a different point of view. They were killed because their ideas were totally different from the ideas of the times. The leaders were unhappy about the new ideas, because the leaders were greedy for power and thought more people might like the philosophers’ ideas and then the leaders would lose power. Socrates and Hypatia’s ideas, however, could not be shut down, because their ideas are still giving to society today.
