    I honestly hate the fact

    that we need money, couldn't it be loyalty and trust that can be developed that can form a system to make the world go round?

    when I was young I was brought up constantly

    being told that money was scarce and that we couldn't spare even a single dollar on "unnecessary" things. This has roots in the hardships of Asian heritage, but is inconsistent and out of place in todays modern and western culture. So now everytime I have money I agonize over...

    Struggling

    So I am really struggling with money at this point. I am a massage therapist and recently quit my job at a big spa that I worked at for almost 3 years. I left because the company was corrupt and wanted to take even more of my money than they already were. I left on a pretty good...

    I hate that the money we have is

    so easily manipulated. I feel like it's a game that I never agreed to the rules of. I can't just work hard and save my money because of Inflation, with each day the money I have is worth less than the day before. If I get a 1% raise at work it's really a pay cut because that...

    No money, never will have extra.

    What is the point on living? I will always be in pain and never able to afford what I need or even want in life. Nothing is free anymore only the rich can get ahead. I HATE this **** society, this crap life we have to follow. I have tried and failed to die but I still wish I...

    Paying For Survival

    There's a price tag on your life, your time. How much do you make an hour? That's exactly how much your time is worth. So, you trade your time in order to make money, so you can buy food and water so you can live. You sell away your life for survival. If you didn't need money to...

    The mere concept of currency doesn't make all

    that much sense. If humana don't learn to share resources soon, we will have problems far larger than the ones we have to deal with now. Sadly, though, for the entire race to reach this realization, we would all have to _get along_...

    Your all calling it money.

    Its currency there is a very important difference. Money is good and very useful. Currency on the other hand is BAD for anyone who is middle to low class

    The World Would Be a Better Place Without It!

    There was a time when we did not use money. we must have got on pretty good back then. Why did that change? If we all learned to work together and help one another we could live like that again! If you need food grow it. If you want things work for them. Life could carry on as it...

    We're led by a piece of paper with printed

    numbers on them. Let that sink in... Money is a social construct that unfortunately rules the world. People kill for that, divide families, lie, cheat, fight, bash each other; when the real richness is health, family, friends, it's love... We're so blinded, and that's...

    It's so corruptive! I like the system,

    it's necessary but there are the rich, the filthy filthy rich, who just make lives miserable. Nikola Tesla is a great example of this. He was a genius and help create a shitton of stuff, and he never got the credit he deserved. Why? Because his inventions didn't make any money...

    What I hate about out money system is

    that we need money to actually survive. If you don't have money, you don't have food, or water, or a place to sleep in safety away from the cold. It seems so stupid to have to pay to actually have the right to survive, to live. It's a right given to us when we're born, yet...

    So Much More.

    I like to daydream sometimes

    that I could start a coop with some friends, grow our own food, and slowly save up and invest in solar electricity and 'green energy' to the point where as a small community, we would be completely sustainable. No reliance on the rest of the world at all.

    It's stupid, really. We need money to meet our

    needs, so we have to have a job. The government taxes the money we make, so we have less to survive on. Then there is tax on the stuff we buy that we need to survive, leaving even less for us to survive on. Then, every year we have to file our taxes to see if the government...
