The Root of All Evil

It really is! Money is the cause of all corruption, and the twisted balance of power that reigns over us all today.
It truly is an evil concept, but it makes the world go round, and the world is a pretty evil place.
Sad thing is, there's absolutely nothing any of us can do about it, so we have no choice but to join in and feed off each other's greed.

Money can be a useful tool of exchange. Unfortunately it has become society's main measure of success and that's where it's affected our other values.<br />
What we can change is how we use it and view it from an individual level and this has an affect on the overall system. Unless we change our individual feelings and actions, the greed and other problems will remain, even if a new system were handed to us tomorrow with money not being the measure.

Money reform is inevitable. We'll suffer the short term consequences but reap the long term benefits.<br />

Our economic system based on fractional reserve banking cannot be sustained.
