I have often thought about how a world without money would operate, and I do believe it is possible, but only with every ones cooperation and of
course that is pretty hard to accomplish because of reasons that member Celcius mentioned.
The greed, ego, jealously, lies and hate of humans doesn't allow for a system to exist for our species as a whole, but if there were to come a time
in the future where human kind is able to shed these traits, be it by revolution, global catastrophe, ascension, cosmic awareness, self awareness or
all of the above, and start a new world of love and peace and cooperation, then this system could exist.
But I don't quite see it as you do with the trade system, although something close. I see a system where everyone just does what brings them
happiness, where all the "house builders" don't do it because it pays or because they can trade it for stuff but because they're life passion is
building houses and where farm guy doesn't grow food to sell or trade but just for the simple fact that's what he loves to do.
So instead of trading everyone just gives everything away to everyone, farm guys is going to give food to as many people as he possibly can and is not
necessarily getting anything back from them, but he doesn't care because thats not the point, he wants to help everyone he can and the point of
helping people is not what your getting in return. House building guys just build houses for anyone at all that needs one and won't necessarily get
anything back from them.
So this system can work IF everyone cooperates. Your job gets to be whatever it is that you love from walking dogs to being a doctor to being a farmer
or a writer, a builder or a teacher. Everything you need is provided for you by your neighbors for free all your life. This works better than trading
because if all you can do is build a house, but all the farmers already have houses looks like your gonna starve. In this system everyone gives
everything to everyone not because of what they're getting in return but because it is going to help them and make their lives better, and because if
everyone plays along everyone gets to have an extremely high standard of living
