    How Far Down

    Man came up with since money.Sounds crazy,but imagine if we didn't have to work jobs we hate and put our mental health at risk just to keep ourselves fed and watered.If the only "jobs" were growing food for everyone to survive on. How grand would it be if a group of politicians...

    others even if they are doing something for others they usually have ulterior motives the amount of hatred I feel Coming from some people to others is astonishing it's like the word kindness isn't even a word.
