A Funny Thing About Money...If you hate money, money will hate you back. And avoid you. And flee from you when you do have some.
Personally, I am very much opposed to the crazy materialist principles that seem to drive our society. But money is not the problem. The problem is people's underlying attitudes and value systems, not the stuff itself.
Money, after all, is just a figment of everyone's imagination that we have agreed has value. If you don't believe this,you should know that central banks can CREATE money out of nothing. And if you don't believe me, go learn some basic economics. Everyone should know some, given that economic theory is responsible, in some way or another, for most of your worldly pain :P
