You, sir, have an excellent point there.
A system where we try to quantify the contributions of others by placing a monetary value upon their heads:
What's in it for you or I?
Massive unbalance of power where those holding the majority of the worlds wealth reign down terror from above and those with little or nothing reign
up terror from below. Those with everything were duped into thinking that was their goal in life, greed. What did they find at the end of their
journey to riches? Depression? Cheating gold digger wives? Fear enough to hire hundreds or thousands of security guards to keep the people they
cheated from exacting revenge? Fear enough to have 10 heart attacks?
And those at the bottom who support this system of greed with their work and taxes, what's in it for them? Slaving for never satisfied customers?
The constant fear of not being able to make ends meet? Drugs and alcohol just to drown out the pain for a moment or two? Obeying the orders of a
snot nosed pimple faced supervisor that actually has no idea how to solve the problems faced by his "underlings" to save his life? Dying at the ripe
old age of 53 because you've worked 3 jobs your whole life and have literally nothing to show for it?
A system of sharing where no one is quantified and everyone owns everything:
What's in it for you or I?
Everything. If there is only one computer and two people then they both have a computer, they share it. Otherwise one has a computer and the other
will continually try to steal it. Wives that love you for who you are because there's no such thing as money, everything is shared. No fear for no
matter what happens you have 7 billion friends willing to help you out. The reward for a job well done is not only a job well done, but the continued
success of your peers, which you shared with, which in turn gives them the ability to perform well done jobs which then reward you with continued
success because they shared the benefits of their labor with you too.
No depression, you always have something to bring you enjoyment for you have billions of friends instead of billions of dollars and billions of angry
cheated "customers." Drug abuse drops to nothing, there's no pain to drown out because you have billions of friends and nothing to fear for if you
fall they will catch you. Remember you've been sharing with others, they like you because you help them out and you like them because they help you
So really what is in it for us? Today you might
receive a monetary reward, but what good is money with your friends starving in the streets?
I know it's no good because it's only use is to purchase anti-depressants, drugs and alcohol to make the pain go away. The pain that bottomless void
brings, the void that cannot be filled with money or things, but only your brethren who you've left to die. Which reward do you want?
P.S. Jealousy can lead to anger which can lead to all sorts of undesirable results. Why are people jealous? Do they feel as though they should be
someone else? Do they feel as though they or we would be better off if they were someone else? Why do they feel that way? Are we telling them
they're worthless because the value placed upon their heads is far lower than the value placed upon the heads of others? Many times this jealousy
turns to hatred and this hatred turns to violence. The undervalued will exact their revenge, fear them for they will torture you, they will steal
from you, they will haunt your dreams, they will force you to live in fear. Why are they so jealous? Did we bring this fear upon ourselves, did we
falsely accuse people of being worthless bringing them the anger which strikes fear into the hearts of others?

P.P.S. Giving it my all... I know someone that was falsely convicted of a crime he didn't commit. I'm not talking about myself either.
