Today's money system invokes greed, poverty and several other negative influences. Basically, money influences every aspect of today's society. Whether it be the lack of, the acquisition of, the loss of, the need of, etc etc. I'd be as bold to say, every person in this world in the span of their lives have done something, simply because of their monetary state. A poor man may have stolen because of lack of money. A stereotypical husband may choose to see his kids less, so as to work more hours to increase his acquisition of money. The point is, we all do things because of money and we would all do things differently than we currently do if our money situations were different. Even for myself, as much as I try not to let money influence my decisions, I still fall prey to it. Because of lack of money, I had to decide to move out of my apartment. Today's system of money elicits greed and crime and corruption. With all this, one has to wonder, why don't we change something? So many crimes today are committed because someone wanted a quick way to get some money. Why hasn't anything changed? I mean, we could all go back to the barter system. I'll give you 20 chickens if you fix my car sort of thing. But then we'd have people stealing chickens. That wouldn't work too well. There's no standard unit either. I mean, how many chickens is a pig worth? lol. So my challenge to you is, try and describe a monetary system, that society wouldn't need to base their lives around, that wouldn't elicity crimes and that wouldn't be super hard to inplement. Do you think it's possible? Could we simply change the current one in some way to fix some of the problems? Or do you see no problem with the current one. I'm hoping this is the right spot, otherwise, moderators can feel free to move it. Lets discuss your ideas on money.
