Specially in these times we have all thought about it, what would happen if we never thought of the concept of making one person pay for something
another person had. And instead gave them that item or service on the basis they would be taken care of when they needed something.
Yes Bartering would be bountiful, But why isn't it? Why have we moved from such a Simplistic means of trading, to a means of trading for something
that has no real purpose other then to pay for items and services.
Would bartering lead to other unforeseen issues? And if so would they be Worse than what money has done.
What If Currency was never Invented, or used.
To Clarify, what I think money has done, is devalued our interpersonal dynamics, We now focus on how we can make more money, so we go an work jobs
alot of us do not like, which leads to poor production or just a lack of consistent employees. Not to mention others work in slave labor type
conditions just so more products can be made to be sold. We use money in every aspect of our lives now, and it has caused a great divide in our World.
Many Suffer all over the world, not for lack of the ability to grow food or trees for housing, But the lack of money it takes to prepare their land
for growing, and maintaining. And, it always seems the less effort you put into something the more you get paid.
We have issues in this world, that A world who can fly to the moon, explore the depts of the sea, design nano structures, Cannot provide for their
fellow human beings who feel, bleed, get hungry and die just like the rest of us. And why? lack of them having Money.
Since when should lack of money be a death sentence? When you were born, were you holding a money clip full of hundreds? or even a Line of Credit? So
why is it that from the moment a life enters this world, Money is the main thing they will have to worry about?
It feels we have lost our focus and touch with mankind and nature, how many Ants do you see handing over dollars to get back into their hole? How many
plants charge us to take their fruit, How much does it cost to breath air?
Its just kinda insane to see so much problems stemming from such a Odd invention.
Im not saying bartering is the best, but it is quite possible bartering would of prevented mass corporations from having such a huge footprint in our
economic world, Do these Corps. care about how you feel about their service, not really, they will put out an appearance they care, but they mainly
want your cash.
I believe Money was introduced and kept into being for the main purpose of control, its a way to have a King and queen that aren't actually royalty,
This may not be written the best, and may sound much like rambling, But Its more or less an thought I find myself thinking about alot, And I would
love to hear how you feel, and if you have any ideas on a better means of product/service exchange voice it.
But if you going to come in here and nitpick and not contribute to the subject matter, Please direct your issue with the closest wall.
