What situation have you been in where your freewill
has not been manipulated my money?
Money = the absence of free will.
I chose to read this post. I chose to respond. I chose to type my response in notepad and copy & paste it into the browser rather than typing it in the browser,
I recently petted a car on the table this computer is on. The cat then chose to sit on my keyboard preventing me from typing. I chose to pet the cat and scratch behind his ears. The cat then chose to roll over and climb into my lap.
Were any of these choices, made by either myself or the cat, manipulated by money?
We can probably agree that the rocks in my backyard have less free will than you or I do.
Do they have more money?

Let me see: Money has enslaved me all my life. I worked hard only to loose everything. Without money, I cannot eat, clothe myself or put a roof over my head. My free will to move about has all but been taken away.

Money is a handy way to barter for goods and services with variable and relative values. Whether it's gold coins, paper cash or plastic twist ties from garbage bags.
