What I mean in "lust for pride" is "someone which is greedy will eventually want to respected and looked highly upon in a very short time" There is pride in every corner of human heart...but it is a human's behavior to control the "amount" of Pride he wants...

After the WW-I the consequences were not obviously in the favor of Germans.
The treaties that they were forced to sign were not in anyway showing concern about Gremany by the Allied nations !

Reasons For the growing Wrath :

1) Germany lost its overseas empire due to the war
2) Czechoslovakia, Estonia, Finland, Latvia and Yugoslavia were created, with the parts of Germany and its other allies.
3) Treaty of Versailles

Reason for Pride can mainly be the belive of the Germans to be a superior race.

These reasons made the everybody really unhappy and .....
Thus the main cause was Wrath and a bit of Pride.
These situations gave Rise personalities like to Adolf Hitler and the war too !

WWI was the direct result of Imperialism and Nationalism, Greed and Pride respectively. Specifically, the Greed of the Austrians and the Pride of the Serbians, which lit a fuse of distrust that had been steadily sparked over the course of European expansionism.

WWII was caused by quite a few factors, not all of which can be so cleanly sorted amongst the Seven Sins. Germans were admittedly resentful to all outsiders in the wake of their loses from WWI, and it was later that Adolf Hitler appealed to their sense of German heritage as a tool for his own rise to power. The Prideful thought of a supreme race is nothing new, nor is the combination of Envy and Wrath that lead to anti-semitism, and land wars generally have a soft spot for the Avaricious as well.

Gluttony, Sloth, and Lust do not directly apply here, beyond the Gluttony of resources and the Lust for power and land (although neither are the orthodox uses of the terms).

Attention Manga Lust fans:
Lust is dead. Finished. Kaput. Joined the Choir Invisible. Roy Mustang incinerated her repeatedly until her Philosopher's Stone dried up and dissolved into nothingness ("Mu" for you Japanese cultural enthusiasts). And she will remain killed off, written out of the plot. Greed was reincarnated because Father saved his Philosopher's Stone and had a guinea pig on hand. Lust is gone. Stop trying to play God with the plot line and bring her back at every possibly junction.
In the event that Hiromu Arakawa can skillfully maneuver around this narrative plot hole, I will eat my words with a pinch of salt.

Greed or Envy. Both can lead to very, very serious mishaps.

As for Pride, nothing is wrong with confidence. wink.gif Haha.

There's a rather sizable gap between confidence and arrogance, Amalthea.

What about wanting world peace?
Just because you want something you can't have doesn't make you bad.

Lust for something good [e.g: World peace]= BAD
Lust for something not good [e.g: materials]=BAD

I believe that'd be pride because it is indeed the source from which the others arise.
And hey c'mon, to all of u that say it is Lust, how can u say that? Lust ain't so bad, I mean it is bad but it isnt for sure the deadliest tongue.gif

Pride.

If you are too proud of yourself, you won't be able to admit there's something wrong with you (Being too lazy, being to wrathful etc.) and you won't be able to be a better person.

It would have to be Envy in my eyes.
Envy...
Could cause you to kill people.
Could cause you to turn people against that certain person.
Could cause you to mabe even lose your sanity...

Trust me, I know.
I've seen it happen...-squint-

The other sins could apply to the effects you mentioned there, wrath can make you kill people, greed can make you turn others against someone (so all attention is for you) and any of the sins could drive you insane
