You'll have to give up the luxuries of modern living though, if you choose to go without money. That's hard for most people to give up.
I do what I can, and I know others do too. But its not enough. There are too few people doing anything.
Who said anything about living in the wilderness being the solution? Who said anything about getting rid of money? IMO thats going backwards. Money
the way I see it is needed because if you require a particular service or goods, without money you will need to return the favour with a service of
goods of your own, and what if you have nothing that the trader wants? Money will enable them to get what they want.
The problem is not living in a society. The problem is people becoming apathetic to the widespread corruption and greed because they ultimately
benefit from it.
Can you imagine where we would be if all our technology was built in harmony with nature? Can you imagine what we'd be able to achieve if technology
was developed with genuinely furthering our understanding, rather than more ways to destroy other people?
Our way of life is not so evil as people claim, it has its flaws like all other cultures on this planet, but ultimately its the corruption of our way
of life that causes problems. And people who just sit by and do nothing.
