Pollution (cars, factories, farms), corruption (companies, politics, rich individuals, organisations), wars, unexplained sicness/deaths, social
unrest, thiefs, madmen and terrorists.
Except sicnesses, madmen and maybe terrorists, these problems is caused by money:
-factories does it to save money for their (often) already rich owners.
-cars (boats, plains) because oil companies benefit from it and car companies are afraid to change their production to make electric cars; people
might not buy electric cars.
corruptions, wars, theft
-In africa they fight over gold and diamond because of its value
-Bush fight for oil for its value to his friends (wich is corruption too)
-theft everywhere. It is done by many otherwise normal people and it cause anger and social unrest among the rest of us.
-police (and fbi) is misused by politicans and/or rich for their own causes. Fbi have prevented many americans from engaging in political protest
marches. I would have to view this as corruption as police and fbi should not be engaged in politics.
All this happens because of money. So what would happen if we change form a money-depending society to money-free one?
Factories would have no reason not to build pollution filters for air and water.
Car companies could safely make only electric cars. And there don't have to be as many car factories as there is now.
Bandit armies in afrika would no longer have a reason to fight each others/goverments as it would be pointless (they fight over gold and diamond
resourches). The bandit groups would hopefully disband.
What use is oil for electric cars? One still need some for airplains and rockets, but the pollution would be nothing compared to now.
No reason to steal when one don't have to. Or if some fool steal anyway one can easily replace the missing item.
Money is only a thing. It is we who make it, not the other way around. When a thing make so much trouble for us as money do, I'd say; let us throw it
As it is said in a famous book/film;
'is it not a strange fate that we should suffer so much fear and doubt for so small a thing?' (if you guess it is from 'The Lords of the Ring' you
A society need people to work, not money. Even today society is made up by people (we are affected by friends, colleagues, local politicans or
organizations deciding things that influece us) for people. Money is only playing an indirectly role in this; they might decide to demolish your house
for the new road as it's cheaper for them than making it go around your house. So my hope is that we don't need to change the world upside down in
order to change from money-depending to money-free society.
My thought is that money-free society will be just like now; only remove banks, insurance companies and stock markeds and you're there. I could be
wrong and we might have to change or organize society differently and that is why I don't suggest we switch to money-free permanently just yet. I
suggest we could try it out for 10 years, maybe. I like round numbers
So my suggestion is;
we try money-free society for a 10 years periode. In those years we can try different aproach of how to organize it and find one wich most are happy
with. A countrys population must decide if they want to be a part of this money-free expriment.
As it is a test periode all money, prices, taxes and all is frozen at the time of the change.
When those 10 years nears its conclusion we'll see what we've learned and tell the population.
Then the population can choose to
1. try it for new 10 years,
2. go back to money-society,
3. continue money-free society forever after (or how long it is needed).
