Just re-read the book "Does it Matter" by Alan Watts. I highly recommend it for anyone who hasn't read it yet. In the book he touches on how the
currency, in America particularly, is controlled and manipulated by people at the top. He shows how this is an illusion, in a sense, and how currency
is just energy. His example is something like this (and I'm paraphrasing):
Subject A is alive and has enough physical strength and knowledge to grow corn and tomatoes, and needs a bookshelf.
Subject B is alive and has enough physical strength and knowledge to build a bookshelf, and needs some corn and tomatoes.
They exchange goods, which is the exchanging of currency, which is really just energy derived from the actual energy flowing through these people's
bodies. Just having energy and being able to work is having value, in an economic and societal sense. Of course, we all know this is just bartering,
but I'm just demonstrating a point. With the paper dollar and our economic system crumbling and it being incredibly hard to find a job, it's like
they'll have you believe that everything is falling apart and its doom doom doom and gloom. Is is really that hard for us to function together and
form a society, as long as we work together and as long as we have blood flowing through our veins? Especially in the US, where we still have fertile
and rich soil and able bodied, intelligent people?
