Money – A Rant

The worst thing in existence is money.  A simple enough sentence, and yet, I already know many of you are doubting it.  The question is, what exactly does money do that makes you think it’s a good thing?  Let’s look at a few questions to see what’s so special about money.

Does it make you free?  The answer is no.  In fact, it does the exact opposite of freedom, for it makes you a slave.  You sacrifice life and time to “earn” money, just to spend it all on things you need to survive.  Yet, no matter what you do, you’ll always need more.  You’re born to debt, and that debt grows as you do, and it passes on to someone else after you die.  There is no answer to money, except that you need it to survive.  The question is, why?  It’s imaginary, and so is its value.  There is not one thing in existence that gives money value, other than us.  If humans die out, money doesn’t go on.  If humans die out, money disappears.  Money is dependent on us, so why are we dependent on money?  Because somewhere, another human being has you under their boot.  They control you, enslave you, humiliate you, simply because they want power.  They want to be able to do whatever they want in the world, and they know, if you eliminate their money, they lose control over your life.

Does it really buy happiness?  Absolutely not.  You are trained from a young age that you will never have enough money to be happy.  You could win the lottery, but you’ll never be happy.  They want this, because the reality is, if money didn’t exist, all of our needs would be met through community values and you could actually be happy.  Money divides and isolates us from each other, from the world.  Money classifies us, and limits our options.  Money stereotypes us and rules over our decisions.  Money creates unnecessary fear.  They want us to think money drives us to work, but it actually forces us to obey.  Studies show that if you meet basic needs of an individual, they will work to meet the needs of the community they’re in.  Money has no value in communities, which is why they isolate those that push for those lifestyles.  The ironic thing is, countries in the 3rd world have a high level of happiness within villages that aren’t interfered with by money or power.  They may have need for medicines that aren’t local, but even illness isn’t as bad in many cases as these bleeding heart charities advertise.  (Ironically, as they ask you for money).  Money doesn’t buy happiness, it simply brings the need for more money.

Can we live without it?  YES, yes, and Hell Yes!  Native American tribes lived without money.  They traded with food and natural resources.  They work in communities.  Yes, they were all but wiped out by Europeans, because of money and greed.  They didn’t die because they needed money.  They didn’t die because they couldn’t live.  They died because they didn’t represent the level of greed or blind need to something that physically has no value.  Europeans wanted gold and other valuable resources, because it meant more money.  Trading a physical value for an imaginary one.  Sounds pretty dumb if you think about it, and yet people kill for it. We all know that, within reason, we need to work to survive.  Why should our work be set by a limited value, which is determined by a person that has never done the same work you do.

Now you know a few reasons why money is the worst thing in existence.
