In a way you are correct, there is a need for $, but hopefully soon, there won't be, if only just everyone got along.
With all posts here the constant is money creates choices. Those choices can be happy OR unhappy ones, so it is true that money doesn't create happiness, but when we lack money it limits our choice too. This is not an issue if the limited number of choices are the ones that give us happiness, but when our only choice(s) is one that is not desirable then you will be unhappy.
In America and most other 1st world countries, money is the tool we use to create choices. I do laugh at times when someone who doesn't lack in money suggests their life sucks or they are stressed more than a person who lacks in money.
I can't see how anything is more stressful than when you can't pay your rent, feed your family, pay your utilities etc when you have no options to help you. People with money (like me) tend to over look these huge issues and see them as non-issues and say stupid things like your life is so carefree, or I wish I had your life, or you don't have a clue to what REAL stress is, and other really ignorant statements.
