Unskillful acts

Greed, hatred and delusion are unskillful (akusala, akutho).  Whatever the
greedy, hating or deluded person does with body, speech or mind -- that is
unskillful, also.  Whatever one overwhelmed by greed, hatred or delusion,
with mind uncontrolled, does to another, unjustly causing him suffering
through punishment, imprisonment, fine, abuse, banishment, or on the grounds
that "might is right" -- all that is unskillful, too.
