Can money ever be a totaly positive thing?

  1. In the American economy, money is essentially debt. I'm in favor of a moneyless society.

  2. Same with other countries. Europe, China, Russia, and more.
  3. Ok SO the point.

    Marijuana dolla<<<<<think.
  4. Money is a lie we choose either to spread or to end.

    I suggest we start to believe.
  5. Money is necessary for a modern society. It is no longer reasonable to trade items directly. But nothing is totally good or bad, and neither is money.

  6. It is no longer reasonable to keep up this pretense that is society.
  7. In my mind money is 100% bad, but then what would we do without it? I can think of a few things, but lets face the facts... money is here for a long time to come because some people believe capitalism is a part of human nature... but it isn't.

    I laugh when a capitalist argues morality.

  8. I cry inside.
  9. Wikipedia-----
    Money is anything that is generally accepted as payment for goods and services and repayment of debts.[1] The main uses of money are as a medium of exchange, a unit of account, and a store of value.[2] Some authors explicitly require money to be a standard of deferred payment.[3] The dominant form of money is currency.[4][5]
    The term "price system" is sometimes used to refer to methods using commodity valuation or money accounting systems.
    The word "money" is believed to originate from a temple of Hera, located on Capitoline, one of Rome's seven hills. In the ancient world Hera was often associated with money. The temple of Juno Moneta at Rome was the place where the mint of Ancient Rome was located.[6]. The name "Juno" may derive from the Etruscan goddess Uni (which means "the one", "unique", "unit", "union", "united") and "Moneta" either from the Latin word "monere" (remind, warn, or instruct) or the Greek word "moneres" (alone, unique).

    I think we all realize what money is. Actually I read a couple posts... so maybe not.
  11. is it morally right for someone to take away the achiements of someone who has worked the hardest, and did well for themselves for a good reward. not to mention socialism shrinks the prosperity of the country over all, it just ups the bottom bracket a very small amount.
    and in turn encouraging people to not take risks or achieve success.

    morally i can say people who have worked for their money should get to keep it, and the way the us is structured now they have the opportunity to make it for themselves, if they try for it.
  12. The point was to show that if it was genneraly accepted even shit(poop kaka etc.) could be the money.

    If anyone ever decides to do an over haul on money, it should start with the middle & lower class, working people, Fuck what a banker tells me(biased piece of shit).

    Sooo.... with that I feel that it could very well be a positive thing.
