Bless you, Reza.
There's apsolutely nothing wrong with operating from a context of greed. This approach definitely brings more of what Larry's already got:
1) money (we want a piece of the Android pie!)
2) winning (we'll whip GOOG's ass in court!)
3) getting to be right a lot (we're smart enough to prove they're wrong about Java/Dalvik/whatever IP)
4) "world domination" (All your base are belong to us!)
5) justifying his actions (Of course they (GOOG or whomever) deserve it!)
or the inverse:
1) getting to be wrong (boohoo, we were wrong about Google, we're the 'victim'! Woe is me! This, BTW, restarts the vicious cycle, e.g. 'we need to be right again, we'll be proven right in the future')
2) losing (boohoo, we lost the suit, we'll have to find another way to "win" against GOOG/whomever, we're "victims")
3) invalidate others (see, see! Google was "greedy" or "wrong" or "unfair" or <pick your favorite adjective>)
4) avoiding domination (screw Google! We won't EVER talk to you again (that is, if we lose in court))
What I _promise_ you operating from a context of greed won't bring him (or Oracle) is love, affinity, vitality, well being & self-expression in the sense that one can talk about things without engaging in speech that creates self-rigtheousness, 'winning', domination, rationalizing one's self, invalidating others, etc. I don't mean 'self-expression' as saying whatever comes to mind - e.g. all the nasty and ugly stuff we think about - that ain't self-expression, that's vomitting.
Above all, the steepest cost will be - love & acceptance of others & self.
Do I think Larry/Oracle's beyond redemption? As much as I was when I was engaging in all of the above in my own life without going into the gory details that I will spare you. Answer: no, he's not.
Can Larry redeem himself? Certainly. Except he can't buy his way into heaven by giving 95% of his wealth to charity. The IRS (e.g. God) would've taken care of at least 40-50% anyway (or more) even if he didn't.
There's another way for Larry/Oracle to go the way of eternity. And that way will not be entertained by any person unless he or she reaches a spiritual bottom, a spiritual wasteland, and admits this - along with all the our-of-integrity behavior (e.g. sins) to God, themselves and another human being.
I've really said nothing new here... someone said all this about 2000 years ago... Is Oracle going to be around 2 millenia from now? I don't know. But I do know what will stick around until the end of time... The word.
