First of all, money as it exists today, brings no luxuries or even benefits to anyone except the bankers and the rest of the 'elite'.
Second of all, we can always use some other kind of 'money', which is in limited supply, so there can never be inflation. That would really boost
things up, as experiments have shown (can't remember the name of the place, or exact details how they did it, but a village somewhere in Europe tried
something like this, and it really made everything plentiful).
Third of all, there ARE no luxuries! Look around! What do you see that are actual luxuries? Bare necessities is all I see, and even they are of very
poor quality, compared to what they could be if those evil people didn't run the world and if people didn't let them.
Money is not the ROOT problem, it's just the TOOL and METHOD for the problem to exist and worsen every day.
Look at where most people of this planet live - there are millions upon millions of people living in a really awful place, with cockroaches, constant
hunger, disease, pollution, overpopulation.. you call that luxury?
Besides, why even use the word "kill", when "money" is clearly not a living entity. Are you antropomorphizing, or are you proud to be a corporation?
(Research the 'meet your strawman' thing to know what I mean)
We don't really need money, but we can't really abandon all forms of exchange suddenly - in my opinion, with actual humans, and the evil psychopaths
out of the way, we could gradually change the whole system from this into a real Utopia, where no money is ever needed by anyone, ever again. It's
possible.. can you imagine such a world? I can, easily. It feels way more natural than everything being tied to coins and bureaucracy.
Money, ID's, bureaucracy - that's not a human system, that's not a life for creative, thinking, spiritually evolving humans. That's an existence and
system for robots, machines and other things that are supposed to HELP humanity, not enslave it.
Your sentiment is short-sighted as it is false. Do you really think people 'enjoy luxuries'?
Do you really think this planet couldn't offer us PLENTIFUL life in all possible ways, if the "producing poverty" system and "creating misery" system
were abandoned for something much better?
I dare say we would have -way- more ACTUAL LUXURIES, if there was no money. But we wouldn't even need "luxuries" - it's enough that we have "all we
need", that everyone has food, shelter, all the equipment they need to fulfill their needs and even some ambitions and desires. Why would anyone
really even need luxuries?
The only people who HAVE luxuries are the bankers, the elite, the 'rich' .. the ones with the agenda. Are you really that desperate to become one of
them that you refuse to let go of your shackles? Money is a tool for enslavement, although it COULD be something more neutral in a proper world. But
in my opinion, it's not needed. At least not the way everything is tied to it artificially. Things could be done without everything always being
measured in coins, for heaven's sakes!
Besides, as a Zen-master once said: "Poverty is your greatest treasure. Never exchange it for an easy life."
Meaning that those who HAVE 'luxuries', are not necessarily very happy, and their life might be very unsatisfactory. I am not saying we should keep
everyone forcefully poor, I am saying that everyone should have all the basic necessities, and if they then want 'luxuries', they could earn it
separately. Or something. Luxuries are not a road to happiness anyway.
In any case, wake up and smell the Utopia, that's right on our fingertips, if we simply have the will and comprehension to manifest it.
