Money in itsself is, like a previous poster said, just a means to an end. It has evolved from a "good idea" for convenience's sake into an
abberation that has spread like a plague or a cancer and has infected everyone. Being in the US and pretty much anywhere else in the world, you have
no control over the disease. You are infected by your parents by it from conception, and it dominates you more and more as your life progresses. Money
is a disease spread by the evil, in the form of a comfortable blanket. It was the ultimate trojan horse.
Really, if you wanna delve even deeper, convenience is the ultimate trojan horse. Convenience is the relinquishing of responsibility in exchange for
comfort, and "responsibility" has been completely misunderstood by modern society.
Responsibility is something you do out of love, not because you're forced to do it because "that's just what people do". There would be a lot less
lazy people in the world if humans had REAL responsibility, but we're no longer taught to be responsible for our community. We're taught to be
responsible solely to ourselves and our families, and in order to "do the right thing", we must submit to the system, or else we're a bad person
who hates himself, his family, AND his community.
It's funny how the powers that be can preach about loyalty and humanity and all of this beautiful language, but at the same time, they can preach
utter greed and selfishness...
And the ultimate tool to make the entire country and it's citizens into the ULTIMATE hypocrites?
The Almighty Dollar. This is your new false idol.
I view those who support money the same as those who blindly support their religions... or even those who say "Oh not all Christians are bad
This is certainly true, same with the obvious fact that not all people who use money are bad people...
But the continued mindless "survival mode" support of a system of control, whether it be money, religion, mainstream science, or otherwise will
always leave plenty of room for fanaticism, and at a higher level, those eliteist bastards that use these fanatics of said means of control as their
If this materialistic society is all you can fathom of existence, then you will forever be trapped in the vicious cycle.
The ultimate modus operandi for most people to fall into any means of control is a fear of death.
So, these systems of control are provided as a "trojan horse" to those as a way to comfort them and distract them from thinking too much about the
purpose of their own existence in an effort to overcome the greatest fear, which is the end of the known existence. Religions offer beliefs, not
knowledge.... same with sciences and politics and economics.
Belief is a convenience that replaces the search for knowledge.
So, in essence, money is a belief system, a convenience.
And convenience, in my opinion, is the suicide of thought.
