    "Most people take our monetary system

    for granted, and are shocked to learn that the government doesn't issue our money. Almost all of it is created by loans made “out of thin air” as bookkeeping entries by private banks. For this sleight-of-hand, they charge interest, making a tidy profit for doing essentially...

    and am good at. but I don't have money to do it. My mum said that I have to give it up because she can't help me financially. she believes that I can be successful at it but she just wants me to give up my dream and have a stable life. Aren't I lucky that I found something that...

    It's really surprising

    and disturbing the things people do to acquire more and more money; even at the expense of others.

    I hate that money is

    such a big deal in modern society. Damn! Everywhere you go "Money this" "Money that" "Do you have the money?" "I wish I had more money." FVCK MONEY! If it was entirely up to me, I'd live my life without worrying about money at all, but I can't otherwise my life will end up...

    Money. Wow. People lose sight of what money is

    at the basic, most fundamentally physical level. It is a piece of paper with a dead guy's face and a number stamped on it, and all of the sudden it controls the world, it controls your aspirations, your morals, your social and moral philosophies even, at least if you are in the...

    I just got back from a service trip,

    and I think it completely changed my view on many things. I live in a wealthy town, and I hate to say it, but I was pretty materialistic even though I didn't realize it. Anyways, I was at an orphanage in Nicaragua. If you don't know, Nicaragua is the second poorest country in...

    Money is important, but I would never ruin my

    wife and children's lives in my pursuit of money. It's not right that my father hides money and lies to his family because of money. I will never be that obsessed with money.

    I understand that we need money to live,

    but some people act ridiculous with money. Some people may have a family member that needs help and the one that is most financially able to help won't help. Money is meant to spent, yes, save what you need to save, pay what you need to pay but what's wrong with helping someone...

    because we cannot live without it. but it shouldn't be the center of everything. I need a whole lot of money to pay for school fees and pay bills. I pray to God that he gives me only enough. not much not less

    Money IS NOT the root to all evil.

    That's a stupid thing to say. The LOVE OF money is the root to all evil. It's funny how people are so adamant about quoting "what they read in the bible" when it clearly says THE LOVE of money is the root. Did you really read it? It's when you make money an idol, when you want...

    Not until I lost the most important person in

    my life, as cliche as it may sound, I wouldn't realize that it't not always about the money. I was bargaining to Him, I could trade whatever I have just for Him to prolong his life, but in the end, I still lost that someone.
