    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...

    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.

    I find people's obsession with money to be

    repugnant. In this country, the good ol' USA, too many people worship money as if it were a god or something.  Money is an evil.  It corrupts people and society.  At best, money is a necessary evil that one needs for food, lodging, heat, and other basic necessities...

    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...

    People worship money.

    Let me tell y'all something. According to the world, if you don't have (a) Money in your wallet, and (b) all the latest gimmicks companies are literally throwing at us, then you're a major minority. I cannot stand that. Money is an idol.
