    The main reason I hate it is

    because I never keep track of how much I have. I wish someone would just give me an allowance and make sure the bills were paid. I know they have people that do that but I don't have that much money. I'm the one that is supposed to take care of the bills and make sure we don't...

    It's not about making

    or earning or having or winning or being given or not spending or saving money. It's about testing your authority and your influence over society and the economy. It's about creating a loop from you(the superior) to me( the inferior) wherein you follow me very closely and you...

    It's really making this World crazy!

    It brings some "joy" to people, but what brings me joy is knowing there is a God who sent his son to die so I can live! That's what real joy is! Money just is screwing things up and is the reason why most people are homeless!

    Please Barter With Me!

    Money, how I loathe you. "Love of money is the root of all evil"- I don't remember who said that, but it's so true. I wish we could all just go back to the bartering system. Use our earthly skills to provide for ourselves. It would help us become closer as a people again too. Not...

    Currency Is An Important Gear Of A Functional Society

    A Funny Thing About Money...

    If you hate money, money will hate you back. And avoid you. And flee from you when you do have some. Personally, I am very much opposed to the crazy materialist principles that seem to drive our society. But money is not the problem. The problem is people's underlying...

    I'm glad I'm not the only one. I would never state it out loud, but I've never liked money. I don't like handling it, carrying it, counting it -- and even worse, touching it. Just knowing that it's one of the dirtiest objects you can touch in your life doesn't help. After I...
