    The fact the poor people continue to be poor

    while the rich remain happy is quite ridiculous. Just a thought though, when you really look at it there should be no such thing as poverty for before money everyone lived happily and healthy. Money has absolutely NO VALUE whatsoever without the people. So...people are going...

    Goodbye Money!!!!

    Money has put so many limitations on our lives and has turned most of humanity into a money hungry, money seeking and money worshiping species. I wish money was never created, that humanity had evolved beyond the need to control and to dominate or be superior to one another. I...

    Your all calling it 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...

    Why money is everything?

    They say money is not important but **** that's a big lie you tell yourself. Because we all know it is important. We can't survive without it in this society that is almost ruled by money. Let's be practical. Money can change everything. If only money grow in a tree, i will...

    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.

    this world. Unfortunately we need that **** even for food or studies, if you don't have money in this ******* planet it is like you have no right to exist. Money shouldn't exist.

    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...
